If you need an acoustic-electric guitar with plenty of sonic horsepower and a rich, full-bodied tonal response, the Yamaha A3R ARE Acoustic-Electric Guitar is an excellent choice. The A3R ARE features a Traditional Western cutaway body made from solid rosewood and a solid Sitka spruce top featuring updated A-Series scalloped bracing and Yamaha's original A.R.E. wood-torrefaction treatment. The larger body makes the A3R ARE ideal for powerful strummers who crave volume, projection, and rich tone. It sports an ergonomic High Comfort mahogany neck, an ebony fingerboard with comfortably hand-rolled edges, an ebony bridge, and die-cast chrome tuners. The A3R comes equipped with onboard SRT2 System electronics featuring a piezo SRT pickup, EQ controls, and Blend control/Mic Type switch for incredible plugged-in sound and performance. Includes hard bag.

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 from the SRT2 pickup 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 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.

SRT2 Electronics
SRT2 is a pickup system developed independently by Yamaha, and optimized for stage performance. From a piezo sound that cuts through when in a mix to a warm, pure acoustic sound that is like recorded by using the vintage microphone in the recording studio, SRT2 allows you to reproduce a sound that you can really use on stage. With SRT2 you can mix these two sounds to attain the exact balance you want to achieve a distinctive tone. What's more, the ability to select from two different mic types lets you choose the optimal sound for your playing style and for the song you are performing.

  • SRT Pickup: Yamaha's proprietary SRT pickup design uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular, ribbon-type piezo pickup.
  • Controls: Volume, Treble, Bass/AFR (Auto Feedback Reduction) [PUSH], Blend/Mic Type Switch [PUSH]
  • [A5R/AC5R/A3R/AC3R]:
  • Mic Type 1: Neumann U67 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
  • Mic Type 2: Royer R122 Active Ribbon Microphone
  • [A5M/AC5M/A3M/AC3M]:
  • Mic Type 1: Neumann KM56 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
  • Mic Type 2: Royer R122 Active Ribbon Microphone


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.
