The Yamaha CSF1M parlor guitar has a rich and vibrant sound that belies its small size. Thanks to its solid Sitka Spruce top and newly designed scalloped bracing, it produces a rich, full-bodied tone comparable to larger instruments.
We conducted a sound test between the CSF1 and a Yamaha FS820 Concert size guitar, and the Parlor compared very favorably. It's one of the best sounding parlor guitars we've heard.
Because of the premium materials and Yamaha’s experience crafting quality guitars, the CSF1M rises above comparably priced parlor guitars in both tone and build quality. The excellent tone and projection are produced by the solid Sitka Spruce top, SRT pickup, and Yamaha’s renowned craftsmanship.
Thanks to the scalloped bracing and onboard electronics, the Yamaha CSF1M produces a sound that’s clear and focused, ideal for accompanying singers, or blending with other instruments on stage or in the studio.
The SRT zero-impact pickup does not interfere with the guitar’s natural wood presence or color its sound unreasonably. It’s designed to amplify the guitar, not color it.
Whether you call it a parlor guitar or a travel guitar, the Yamaha CSF1M is a high-quality tone machine in a small, affordable package that should suit both casual and seasoned players alike. The included hard bag is functional, durable, and slings over your shoulder for easy transport. Add it to the cart and get yours on its way.
