Yamaha's groundbreaking CG-TA TransAcoustic nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar provides an immersive experience that renews inspiration and spawns creativity. The CG-TA features built-in reverb and chorus effects that don't require any external amplification, just the guitar itself. The CG-TA TransAcoustic guitar gives musicians and songwriters an exciting new way to compose and perform.

Innovative Actuator Technology Provides Authentic Reverb and Chorus

At the heart of the CG-TA's innovative design is an integrated actuator that creates authentic reverb and chorus sounds inside the guitar body. As the strings vibrate, the actuator vibrates in response and transmits those vibrations to the guitar body and the air surrounding it. The result is lush, spacious reverb and shimmering chorus you can feel and hear, without needing any external effects.

Simple Yet Intuitive Controls for Adjusting Effects and Volume

Despite the complex technology inside, the CG-TA is designed to be simple to operate. Three unobtrusive knobs let you easily adjust the reverb, chorus and volume levels. The reverb control transitions smoothly from a warm, intimate room sound to a spacious hall ambience. The chorus adds subtle motion and thickness, enriching the guitar's natural tone. When plugged in, the volume control adjusts the line out level.

Premium Tonewoods and Components Provide a Familiar yet Inspiring Playability

The CG-TA's solid Engelmann spruce top and ovangkol back and sides produce a rich, balanced tone that complements the built-in effects beautifully. Its nato neck and rosewood fingerboard provide a familiar feel for any guitarist. The CG-TA gives you an inspiring creative tool built on a foundation of premium tonewoods and high-quality components.
