Exceptional bang for the buck!

By Timothy Scudder

Comments about Yamaha A-Series All Solid Wood Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Preamp/Pickup:

Had a chance to play an A1M and an AC3R at my local GC and really fell for the warmth of the A1M. Allan Clarke in the Hollywood store hooked me up with a great price on the A3M in Vintage Sunburst sight unseen and had it shipped to my home. Having had it for a couple of weeks now, I have to say it has far exceeded my expectations. Fit and finish are outstanding, with nicely understated details. Certainly as nice as the mid-line Taylors (which, like many of you, I would love to own but just can't rationalize the expense, especially given my modest abilities!) The action is nice and low; intonation spot on; built in tuner works better than any other I've used; neck plays nice and fast; and the guitar really holds a tune. My wife is a professional musician and she immediately commented on the gorgeous, balanced tone - warm with a nice bottom end but with plenty of brightness and definition on the high-end - very Taylor like but maybe with a little Martin thrown in. I plugged it in to a Bose Model 1 Series II through the ToneMatch mixer and was very pleased with the pick-up/preamp. Nice clean tone, no piezo quack, and between the mic settings, EQ, mix between direct and modeled sound and the resonance knob, you can really dial it in to taste. It's a subtle effect but through a full range system like the Bose, it is noticable. The included case is as nice as any I've ever owned. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these A series guitars to anyone. The A3M, (solid mahogany back and sides, solid sitka spruce top, ebony fretboard and bridge, rosewood detailing in the all wood binding and a flexible tuner/preamp with case) at this price point is a steal!

All Wood all Tone

By steven ulrich

from Arlington, tx

Comments about Yamaha A-Series All Solid Wood Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Preamp/Pickup:

This is a beautifully finished guitar with a very mellow tone when played as an acoustic...when used as an electric the SRT system allows you to control just about any aspect you might want...from twang to suttle finger picking.......Overall an excellent guitar

champagne for the price of beer

By ivan resendiz

from chicago il.

Comments about Yamaha A-Series All Solid Wood Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Preamp/Pickup:

I bought this guitar 3 days back and i was a little iffy at first because there are not to many reviews about this guitar. I've owned a few guitars and I did go try the low end martins and taylors around the same pricerange and this one by far blows them away with solidwood, it has low action very easy to play great warm and clear sound the preamp and built in tuner is amazing pluged in sounds like a high end taylor. the guitar is well put together all around and it comes with a hard case which alone is over $100.

Great sound, great electronics...buzzy battery case

By peter pyo

from Dover, NJ

Comments about Yamaha A-Series All Solid Wood Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Preamp/Pickup:

I bought this several months ago. When I first bought it, I loved it. I hadn't noticed, however, a buzz that resonated throughout the whole guitar. I took it back to Guitar Center, where the tech said he had no idea what was causing it. They got me a new one, same model, and it had the SAME problem!! i suspected that there was a design flaw, and with the help of one of the Guitar Center associates, we realized that when you take out the battery compartment, the buzz went away completely. I wonder if it has something to do with the fact this guitar takes two double-A's instead of one 9 volt. For that, I give it 4 stars, because the electronics are uniquely awesome, with the ability to play with the mix between a piezo pickup and a mic...it's a sound lover's dream. The actual sound of the guitar, is also, in my opinion, a more pleasing and rich sound than other guitars that are more expensive than the Yamaha.
