Dreadnought body style gives you excellent natural acoustic projection

Ever since guitarists have been relying on the natural projection of their instruments, the powerful voice of the dreadnought body style has been an all-around favorite among flatpickers. Even without its advanced onboard electronics, the A3R acoustic-electric guitar gives you a bold and balanced voice that's perfect for anything from traditional bluegrass to the driving rhythms of modern acoustic rock. You'll love the full sound of Yamaha's A3R, particularly when you play more aggressively.

Spruce-topped rosewood is a singer-songwriter's ideal tonewood combo

Whether you lean towards indie rock, alt country, traditional folk, or any other style you can think of, if your acoustic guitar is frequently your entire backing band, then you're going to feel right at home with a Yamaha A3R acoustic-electric guitar. Its rosewood back and sides provide exceptional bass and powerful projection, whereas its spruce top adds air to its treble. This leaves the midrange open for your voice, so you aren't constantly fighting to sing over your guitar. Even if you don't play solo, you can't help but appreciate the A3R's incredible tonal balance.

SRT electronics system faithfully captures your acoustic sound when you play plugged in

When it's time to plug in, most acoustic guitars are reduced to mere shadows of their former tone. That's why Yamaha developed their SRT electronics. More than a mere preamp system, these electronics form a DSP-driven acoustic modeling system that analyzes the sound of each individual string to faithfully re-create your guitar's sound live. When you plug in your A3R, you'll hear all the subtle nuances, open space, and smooth overtones you'd only expect from an expertly placed vintage tube mic. Playing plugged in will never be the same again.
