Yamaha A1MTBS Dreadnaught Acoustic-Electric With Traditional Western Cutaway, Tobacco Brown Sunburst
Solid-top Acoustic-electric with a Big Voice
In the Yamaha A1M Dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar, Yamaha offers a vintage look, excellent volume in the low-mid ranges, and great playability. With a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, this guitar sounds fantastic. The Yamaha A1M Dreadnought takes full advantage of Yamaha's acclaimed SRT pickup for recording and stage performance. With its traditional System 66 preamp, you get volume, a built-in tuner, a 3-band EQ, and automatic midrange frequency control with a convenient slider.
Modern audio engineering with traditional style
The Yamaha A1M Dreadnought has a traditional western body cutaway, allowing its lows and highs to resonate fully and project well through its circular soundhole. The western cutaway gives it a classic look, and because it offers better access to the upper frets, soloing is easier, as you can reach higher treble notes more comfortably.
Quality woods plus classic design equal brilliant sound
Sitka spruce is highly valued for guitar tops — and for good reason. This select grade of stiff but elastic softwood is equally suited to aggressive strumming, flatpicking, and even fingerpicking styles of play. The Yamaha A1M Dreadnought features a solid Sitka top with mahogany back and sides, producing warm, balanced tones from low to high, and the rosewood fingerboard and bridge provide additional responsiveness. This guitar looks, sounds, and plays great.
Studio sound onstage
Normally you can best hear a guitar's subtle nuances when it's miked in the studio, but the Yamaha A1M Dreadnought has Yamaha's SRT pickup, which brings those wonderful acoustic sounds to the stage. Further customization is provided through the AMF midrange frequency adjustment on the preamp control panel.
