Comments about Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Pickup:

i had an A1R a few years ago that a friend purchased for me. liked it but had to sell it for food! serioiusly. horrible. then i got a tanglewood. sold it for food. then i got a yamaha A3R. i uhhh did not sell it for food. i traded it in for a taylor 110E....well then i traded that in for a sunburst A1R. get my point? this guitar is amazing. the tone is simply sweet..you can touch the strings and the melody is reverberating to all ears open! the reason for the story above is that i came full circle, back to the A1R after almost starving. beiieve it or not this is a true story. 6 stars for me. amazing product. great for all aspects of recording and playing.

Waited Long Enouigh

By Ronald Mangano

from Bellingham, Wa.

Comments about Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Pickup:

Could somebody seriously explain to me why my Yamaha A1R Vintage Sunburst sounds as good if not better than Gibsons J-45 and some high end Martins and Taylors. Before taking delivery I had the Luthier install a bone saddle, bone nut, and Martin SP Strings. Total price for guitar and parts and labor still kept the overall price half of those Big Names. My dream guitar for 20 years was a J-45.Then played a few new ones.What happened to it??There is nothing that I can say negative about this unit.

Excellent

By Andy Spoon

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Pickup:

I went to GC intending to purchase a much more expensive guitar (Taylor 2 series guitar) at $1000 and picked this guitar up and loved it. It's bright and brassy while stil warm and expressive. It's going to have the sound of the 2 or 3 series or even something higher like a D-16 but with excellent electronics and comes with a case. Not happy with the case, but at least (for $700) was substantial. I recommend this guitar for anyone looking for a great and expressive cutaway dred

Great value

By dave deakman

Comments about Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Pickup:

From a price point I went in looking at the Godin 5th ave guitar. For a comparison I picked up this guitar. The sound and quality of the guitar were night and day. I was in the "room of reverence"' all the $3000 guitars, and started comparing Gibsons, martins and Taylor's and found that the overall sound quality was as good if not better than those guitars. Plus you get a beautiful case included in the price. Very impressed!

Excellent Guitar

By Paul Jordan

from Marion NC

Comments about Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Pickup:

All around great player. The rosewood gives mine the little bit more brightness I was looking for, I�ۡ���ve been very happy with my instrument. It�ۡ���s right there when compared to the two Martin HD 28�ۡ���s my brothers play at less than half the cost. I found an A1R while looking for a new guitar at my local GC, played it for a while and ended up taking it home. I was that taken with how well it played and how beautiful the rosewood back and sides where. I�ۡ���ve had no problems with the electronics and have even come to like the idea of the built in controls and tuner. Mine has been a top notch guitar. No complaints.
