Yamaha A Series: New Vintage Sunburst Finishes

Published: Fri January 27, 2012  News Feed

Yamaha A Series

A1R ~ A3R ~ AC1R ~ AC3R


All new Vintage Sunburst finishes for the Yamaha A1R, A3R, AC1R and AC3R


Yamaha A Series guitars… elegance, performance and guaranteed quality. It takes undoubtable experience, precision and skill to create guitars like those of the A-Series, and now Yamaha have released upon us some A-masterpieces with new finishes. The A1RVS, A3RVS, AC1RVS and AC3RVS guitars are now available in Vintage Sunburst as well as natural.

The A-Series of electro-acoustics has been at the top of the acoustic ladder since its launch at NAMM 2011, and this year the series received a Gear  of the Year Award with MusicRadar. Not surprising considering that these are some of the most superb guitars on the market.


Combining technology with practicality, Yamaha created the SRT pickup and preamp system. This system has the capacity to produce an incredibly natural, studio standard acoustic sound and is very easy to use. The SRT uses the A-Series’ natural sound qualities as a basis for its technical processes, delivering amazingly realistic sound that is full of the guitars character and qualities.


This series provides you with technology where you need it and tradition where you want it, and we know you want it. Designed using real wood binding with hand selected tonewoods and Yamaha’s trademark ultra-thin finish; the A-Series produces incredible resonance and simply radiates character and personality.

Conceived in the pursuit of one key principle, tone. These guitars each produce a dynamic range of sounds, lows are deep and warm, mids are detailed and the highs are as clear, crisp and satisfying as walking out into the snow on Christmas day.

Consisting of either a mahogany (M models) or rosewood (R models) body for a super-smooth frequency response, all the A-Series guitars feature absolutely stunning ebony fretboards, purely elegant and charming. The guitar necks have a semi-open pore finish, allowing the player to feel the natural wood surface whilst experiencing smooth movement and the ability to make fast manoeuvres.

The A-Series doesn’t just have striking good looks, smarts and incredible tone, but these guitars have life, they have soul.
