An affordable, high-quality rosewood acoustic-electric cutaway: the Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar.

The Yamaha A1R Acoustic-Electric Guitar is the perfect choice if you're looking for a mid-priced guitar with a rich, powerful voice and superior quality & playability. The A1R sports Yamaha's Traditional Western Body Cutaway made with a solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood back & sides. Just as the rest of the A-Series, the A1R boasts updated scalloped bracing for added volume and tonal richness, a High Comfort neck design for an outstanding playing feel, a simplistically elegant aesthetic, and set of long-lasting, premium Elixir strings. Case not included.

The Yamaha A-Series: The Next Level
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; 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 a 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.

Powerful Acoustic Sound
A new sound has been developed for the A-series that is louder and stronger in the low-mid ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division. Their analysis led to the development of the updated scalloped bracing for the top board and shorter bracing than normal for the back board. Also, treating the tops with Yamaha's exclusive A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) process gives the instrument a rich, vintage quality tone, making it sound as though you'd been playing it for years from the very first moment you pick an A-series guitar up.

High Comfort Neck Profile
Extensive research with players, luthiers and guitar techs has given A-Series the feel and playability that today's acoustic-electric players want, whether switching from electric to acoustic on-stage, recording a session with intricate open tunings, or practicing at home. These superb guitars feature a straighter neck taper for easier high-fret playing, and hand-rolled fingerboard edges to achieve a played-in feel.

Simple and Distinctive Looks
The simple, organic design features wood binding and other techniques that capture the warmth of wood. The distinctive shape of the pick guard, which stands out when performing, is a revival of the N1000 guitar that Yamaha released in 1975.

Elixir Strings
A-series guitars are equipped with Elixir NANOWEB 80/20 Bronze Light strings to deliver a lively tone together with extended tone life that players have come to expect from Elixir Strings.
