multi-element pickup and preamp system
* A.R.E. to produce powerful and balanced vintage tones
* New scalloped bracing pattern
* 1960s aesthetics and modern craftsmanship
The aged tonewoods of classic guitars become more resonant over time and vibrate more freely, producing a sound we hear as louder and more powerful. This is the tone the FGX3 is designed to produce.
Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) is the technology Yamaha uses to get the vintage tones from their new guitars. This process uses heat, humidity, and pressure on the top to accelerate the aging of the wood. It's none chemical, environmentally friendly and produces vintage tones on a new instrument!
The Yamaha FGX3 acoustic electric Red Label guitar is one of the first guitars to feature Atmosfeel, a new 3-way pickup, and preamp system. It uses an under saddle pickup for the low frequencies, an internal mic for lows and mids, and a totally new contact sensor that's extremely sensitive to vibrations for the high frequencies. The Atmosfeel system, with its multiple element pickup arrangement, produces smooth and natural acoustic tones and sets the Yamaha FGX3 guitar apart from all others in its price range!
Recreating a classic is always a challenge, but the new Red Label Yamaha FGX3 hits the mark. It sets the standard of what a Yamaha guitar is, in terms of tone, style and build quality and defines what it takes to build a great sounding guitar.
