Brief video about the new – and different – Yamaha A Series Acoustic Electric guitars.
Posts Tagged ‘Yamaha Acoustic’
We recently received a partial shipment of the new Yamaha A Series acoustic electric guitars, and our first impressions are very good.
The A-Series acoustic electric guitars are different from Yamaha’s popular FG and L Series handcrafted guitars. They were designed from the ground up here in the U.S. by Yamaha’s R & D team and have a new look, feel and sound. They spent three years on the A Series project, and spoke to countless guitarist and luthiers during the process.
If you like an acoustic guitar with very playable action, you’re going to love these instruments. They fret as easily as an electric guitar – no string buzz – and are very comfortable to hold and play.
We think the new Yamaha A Series acoustic electric guitars are going to be another home run for Yamaha.
Everybody wants to get the most bang for their buck, and guitarist are no exception. If there’s a deal to be had, they’ll find. Well you needn’t look further, you’ve struck gold!
To say that the Yamaha FG700S acoustic guitar is a bargain, is an understatement. This is one of our best selling guitars at Andy’s Music, and there’s no secret as to why! It sounds great and costs little – $199.00. When you consider the quality of woods, and the quality of manufacture, the FG700S could sell for much, much more. After all, it is a handmade guitar.
Our Uncle Andy has been in the Yamaha factory that makes this instrument, and has seen first-hand the TLC Yamaha luthiers put into this guitar. If you like, take a look at this short Yamaha Guitar Factory video for a glimpse at the guitar making process.
What’s the moral of this story? If you want to buy a great sounding Yamaha six string acoustic guitar with your lunch money, get the FG700S!
Keep on picking.
Yamaha Guitars is ringing in its 40th anniversary this year, and to celebrate, Yamaha received a very nice present. According to MI Sales Trak, Yamaha Guitars moved past U.S. competitors Martin and Taylor to take the top sales spot in the U.S.
Yamaha has led the field in the number of acoustic guitar units sold for some time, but just one year ago, Yamaha ranked fourth behind Martin, Taylor, and Ibanez in dollar volume, according to Dennis Webster, marketing manager for Yamaha Guitars. Not anymore.
“The easy part is over,” Webster, said, “we want to celebrate our 40 years in the U.S., but now comes the tough work of staying competitive in the future.”
The Yamaha FG series is one of the best selling acoustic guitars, according to Webster, a feat that is not lost on Yamaha’s guitar marketing team. For its 40th anniversary, Yamaha has commissioned a limited-edition FG to celebrate, and only 40 guitars were made. Each will include a plaque on the back of the headstock and be individually numbered.
