Overview

The AC5R ARE Concert Cutaway features all-solid rosewood back and sides with hand-selected Sitka spruce top with Yamaha's original A.R.E. wood-torrefaction technology. Natural, dynamic plugged-in tone from the SRT2 pickup system perfectly suits your performance on the stage and the made-in-Japan premium build quality will gratify advanced players' desires.

Powerful Acoustic Sound
A-series guitars are 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 a new scalloped bracing for the top board and shorter bracing than normal for the back board.

Also, treating the top board 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 year from the very first moment you pick an A-series guitar up.

Performance-ready Electronics
From cut-through piezo sound to warm, pure acoustic sound, which sounds like it was recorded with vintage microphones in the professional studio, Yamaha's 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.

Comfortable Neck Profile
Taking feedback from extensive research with players, luthiers and guitar techs Yamaha gave A-Series guitars a neck with 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.

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, a standout appointment when performing, is a revival of the N1000 guitar that Yamaha released in 1975.
