YAMAHA A1R – THE NEXT LEVEL OF A SERIES
Designed to be the ideal performance acoustic guitar, the Yamaha A series is crafted from the ground up to be perfectly suited to life on the road. With natural, dynamic plugged-in tone and stage-ready simplicity from the new SRT2 pickup system; played-in comfort out of the box thanks to hand-rolled fingerboard edges on a straight taper neck; a custom-designed scalloped bracing pattern for an all-new powerful, expressive acoustic tone and Yamaha’s legendary road-ready construction to make sure it’s ready when you are, night after night, the A series is the perfect guitar to take your playing to the next level.
SRT2 is a new pickup system developed independently by Yamaha and optimized for stage performance. From a piezo sound that cut through when in a mix to a warm, pure acoustic sound that is recorded by using the vintage microphone in the recording studio, SRT2 allows you to reproduce a sound that you can really use on stage. With SRT2 you can mix these two sounds to attain the exact balance you want to achieve a distinctive tone
What’s more, the ability to select from two different mic types lets you choose the optimal sound for your playing style and for the song you are performing. (SRT2 is applied to the A5 and A3 only).

- B: Treble Control
- C: Bass Control/AFR (Auto Feedback Reduction) [PUSH]
- D: Blend Control/Mic Type Switch [PUSH]
Yamaha’s proprietary SRT pickup design uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular, ribbon-type piezo pickup.

Powerful Acoustic Sound
A new sound has been developed for the A-series that is louder and stronger in the low-mid ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division. Their analysis led to the development of the new scalloped bracing for the top board and shorter bracing than normal for the backboard. Overall increases across the lower range. Richer harmonic overtones in the mid-range.
Also, treating the tops with Yamaha’s exclusive A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) process gives the instrument a rich, vintage quality tone, making it sound as though you’d been playing it for years from the very first moment you pick an A-series guitar up. (A.R.E. processing is applied to the A5 and A3 only.)
High Comfort Neck Profile
Extensive research with players, luthiers, and guitar techs has given A series the feel and playability that today’s acoustic-electric players want, whether switching from electric to acoustic on-stage, recording a session with intricate open tunings, or practicing at home. These superb guitars feature a straighter neck taper for easier high-fret playing, and hand-rolled fingerboard edges to achieve a played-in feel.
A5 Grade Available
Made in Japan, the A5 is the flagship model in Yamaha’s renowned A series acoustic guitars. Featuring high-quality binding on both the head and body, all A5 instruments come equipped with Gotoh’s renowned open-gear tuners, delivering the accuracy and reliability that professionals demand. From cut-through piezo sound to warm, pure acoustic sound, which is like recorded with vintage microphones in a professional studio, SRT2 allows you to reproduce a sound that you can really use on stage.
Simple and Distinctive Looks
The simple, organic design features wood binding and other techniques that capture the warmth of wood. The distinctive shape of the pickguard, which stands out when performing, is a revival of the N1000 guitar that Yamaha released in 1975.
The A-series guitars are equipped with Elixir NANOWEB 80/20 Bronze Light strings to deliver a lively tone together with the extended tone life that players have come to expect from Elixir Strings.
