Solid-top Acoustic-electric with Vintage Vibe and a Big Voice
In the Yamaha AC1M Concert 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 mahogany back and sides, this concert-sized guitar sounds fantastic. The Yamaha AC1M takes full advantage of Yamaha’s acclaimed SRT piezo 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.
Vintage style and superior playability
The Yamaha AC1M Concert has a traditional concert body cutaway, allowing its lows and highs to resonate fully and project well through its circular soundhole. The western 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.
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 AC1M features a solid Sitka top with mahogany 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 AC1M 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.
