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

In the Yamaha AC3R Concert acoustic-electric guitar, Yamaha offers a vintage look with enhanced volume in the low-mid ranges, due to new scalloped bracing for the top and shorter bracing on the dreadnought's back. With a solid Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides, this concert-sized guitar sounds fantastic. It also benefits from Yamaha's A.R.E. wood torrefaction, a high-heat treatment that gives the guitar top greater stability and an aged, vintage hue. The Yamaha AC3R Concert takes full advantage of Yamaha's unobtrusive and versatile SRT2 pickup system for recording and stage performance. You get volume, treble, and bass controls (with auto feedback reduction), and Blend Control allows you to balance between the piezo and SRT2 preamp, for your own distinctive tone.

Modern audio engineering with vintage style

While the Yamaha AC3R Concert has a traditional western body cutaway, its lows and highs resonate even more fully than those generated by conventional designs, thanks to new scalloped top bracing and shorter back board bracing. These modifications allow the top and back to resonate more naturally and with greater volume in the low-mid ranges. The western cutaway gives it a classic look, but an all-new brace design definitely brings the Yamaha AC3R Concert into the twenty-first century — and the Sweetwater showroom!

Quality wood plus innovation equals brilliant sound

Sitka spruce is highly valued for guitar tops — and for good reason. This select grade of stiff but elastic softwood is gorgeous and is equally suited to aggressive strumming, flatpicking, and even fingerpicking styles of play. The Yamaha AC3R Concert features a solid Sitka top treated at high heat to remove moisture and volatiles (the A.R.E. process), resulting in greater stability and beautiful aged color. Its solid mahogany back and sides also produce warm, balanced tones from low to high. The Yamaha AC3R Concert is a guitar that looks, plays, and sounds great. 

Studio sound onstage

Normally you can best hear a guitar's subtle nuances in the studio while miked, but the Yamaha AC3R Concert has Yamaha's SRT2 pickup system, which brings those wonderful acoustic sounds to the stage. With blend control, you can balance the output from the under-bridge piezo pickup with the modeling of either a Neumann KM 56 small-diaphragm condenser mic or a Royer R-122 active ribbon mic, creating your own unique tone with natural clarity.

Yamaha AC3R Concert Features:

  • 6-string acoustic-electric with traditional western cutaway
  • Solid Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides for bright, warm tone
  • A.R.E. wood torrefaction provides greater stability and attractive aged color
  • SRT2 system allows you to blend between piezo and SRT2 preamp signals for a personalized sound
