Yamaha A Series

Jack Shepherd sits down with the Yamaha A Series to share an intimate performance.

Designed to be the ideal performance acoustic guitar, the Yamaha A Series is crafted from the ground up to be perfectly suited to life on the road. With natural, dynamic plugged-in tone and stage-ready simplicity from the SRT2 preamp system; played-in comfort out of the box thanks to hand-rolled fingerboard edges on a straight taper neck; a custom designed scalloped bracing pattern for powerful, expressive acoustic tone and Yamaha's legendary road-ready construction to make sure it's ready when you are, night after night, the A Series is the perfect guitar to take your playing to the next level.
