Solid-top Acoustic-electric with Vintage Vibe and a Big Voice

In the Yamaha AC1R acoustic-electric guitar, Yamaha offers a vintage look, excellent volume in the low-mid ranges, and great playability. With a solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides, this concert-sized guitar sounds fantastic. The Yamaha AC1R takes full advantage of Yamaha's acclaimed SRT pickup for recording and stage performance. With its traditional System 66 preamp, you get volume, a built-in tuner, a 3-band EQ, and automatic midrange frequency control with a convenient slider.

Modern audio engineering with vintage style

The Yamaha AC1R has a traditional concert body cutaway, allowing its lows and highs to resonate fully and project well through its circular soundhole. The concert cutaway gives it a classic look, and because it offers better access to the upper frets, soloing is easier, as you can reach higher treble notes more comfortably. Sweetwater fingerstyle players love that!

Quality woods plus classic design equal brilliant sound

Sitka spruce is highly valued for guitar tops — and for good reason. This select grade of stiff but elastic softwood is equally suited to aggressive strumming, flatpicking, and even fingerpicking styles of play. The Yamaha AC1R features a solid Sitka spruce top with rosewood back and sides, producing warm, balanced tones from low to high. This guitar just looks, plays, and sounds great. 

Studio sound onstage

Normally you can best hear a guitar's subtle nuances when it's miked in the studio, but the Yamaha AC1R has Yamaha's SRT pickup, which brings those wonderful acoustic sounds to the stage. Further customization is provided through the AMF midrange frequency adjustment on the preamp control panel.

Yamaha AC1R Features:

  • 6-string acoustic-electric with traditional concert cutaway 
  • Solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides for bright, warm tone
  • SRT pickup brings studio quality sound to the performance stage
  • Convenient bulit-in tuner, 3-band EQ, and volume controls at your fingertips on the upper bout
