Creating The Tools
For Tomorrow’s Music
On the stage or in the studio, the instrument to the musician is a tool just as
the brush is to the artist or the pen to the writer. Unlike other artists however,
the quality of the musician’s tool has a much greater impact on their ability to
fully express themselves. The right tools can free up the artist’s imagination,
break new ground as is reaches new heights. For over 60 years, we have focused
a great deal of energy, working with artists to improve the quality, sound,
playability, durability, and design of our instruments. Feedback from you, our
valued customers, and the professional musicians that play our instruments has
always played a vital role in our constant strive for improvement.
The professionals who take to the stage and create in the studio are the most
critical when it comes to requests and requirements, and we focus a great deal
of time and effort bringing their ideas to life. Our goal is to create the tools
that deliver the right type of tone, the perfect attack, the ideal feel to help the
artists bring their imagination to reality. Tools that today’s musicians are using
to create tomorrow’s music.

Introducing Three New With a Tone Ready To Rock
Overwhelmingly popular since its launch,
the SG series, Yamaha’s most iconic guitar,
underwent a significant revision in 2010.
Keeping the same basic design since
their introduction in 1976, the SG2000
and SG1000 have remained popular with
guitarists for nearly 40 years, so players
all over the world expressed their regret
with both models were removed from
the lineup. The new models are boasting
specs and features that we feel will be
more than enough to please SG fans.
The pros that were asked to try these
instruments during development and prior
to their release were certainly impressed.
So what did the latest revision do for the
SG? Let’s take a look. While the instrument
maintains its refined double-cutaway
silhouette, maple top, and mahogany
back, the arch top body was modified
with a more profound curve. Attaching the
bridge and tailpiece to the maple top at
its thickest point allows the SG to capture
maximum string vibration. Sculpting the
maple top so it gradually thins as you
move from this point out to the guitar’s
edges results in efficient transfer of string
vibration to the entire body and optimizes
weight balance of the guitar.
Joined to the body using a set neck
method, the mahogany neck carries the
same shape as the original SG, providing
a stable grip. With an overwhelming
majority of orders placed by artists at
our custom shop calling for rosewood
fingerboards, it was clear that rosewood
was the material of choice, so we have
replaced the traditional SG ebony
fingerboard with one crafted from
premium quality rosewood. The result
is a neck that produces a warm tone
and exceptional balance, well suited for
today’s music.
The headstock has the same traditional
SG look but its size is actually a bit
smaller for better body balance and
reduced weight.
Applying Yamaha’s exclusive I.R.A. (Initial
Response Acceleration) treatment to the
guitar ensures that each instrument has
a matured tone, like its been played for
years, right out of the box. Turn to page
101 if you want to learn more about this
advanced process.
Pickups are chosen according to the
sound concept of each model and
explained later. Likewise, control knobs
differ according to the styling concept
of each model. All other hardware is the
same throughout the series.
All models incorporate Grover locking
tuners. These tuners lock string ends
in place at the post to prevent slippage
while providing superior tuning stability
along with quick and efficient string
changes. The nut is made by Graph Tech
and manufactured from a material that
permanently maintains characteristics
similar to an ivory nut soaked in oil. With
the material easy to process, an extremely
smooth surface on the bottom of the
nut can be attained, ensuring maximum
transfer of string vibration to the neck to
produce a clear sound with excellent attack.
The bridge and tailpiece are made by
Tone Pros. Anchoring the lighter bridge
and tailpiece to individual mounting studs
ensures secure attachment and ultra-efficient
transfer of string vibration to the body.
Premium electronic components are
selected for the SG guitars only after
passing Yamaha’s rigorous testing criteria.

Specifications
The SG development team chose toggle
switches by Switchcraft and volume and
tone pots by Noble—both companies
that are recognized by professional guitar
technicians around the globe for their
highly reliable parts.
This is today’s SG series. Equipped
with the latest hardware, refinements
made throughout, sound and playability
polished to such a high degree of
perfection that it is sure to satisfy any pro.
There are three SGs, each with its own
tonal concept, ready to shake up today’s
music and guitarists.
The SG1820 is the standard on which the
SG series is based.
The concept behind this guitar’s tone is
“the next step in electric guitar sound for
Rock music”.
The selection of Seymour Duncan
’59 pickups was the result of building
prototype after prototype for evaluation
by artists working in cooperation with
Yamaha. Combining this with the upgraded
body structure that produces rich
harmonics has resulted in an instrument
that delivers a smooth midrange and rich
highs, along with deep distortion.
Set neck and passive style pickups
capture the essence of the SG1000,
updated to make it perfect with today’s
music. This instrument inherits the most
from the original SG design and is sure to
generate great popularity among SG fans
around the globe.

IRA (Initial Response Acceleration) ira
If you’ve ever played another guitarist’s instrument and not been able to get the same
sound, it’s probably because you are playing a different style than what the guitar is
used to. After playing the same guitar for years, the guitar adapts to the guitarist’s
playing style. It takes time for a new guitar to adapt to your own way of playing. Stress
found between parts like finish, woods, body, neck, fingerboard, nut, bridge, etc., must
be released before all of the parts can resonate together as an instrument. It takes time
and a lot of playing for this to happen.
Using IRA technology, stresses like those between the finish and wood are released by
applying specific vibrations to the completed guitar. Once IRA treatment is complete,
the guitar is more responsive to the player’s style and resonates more easily with
measurably increased sustain. The time needed to be played in is also reduced.
The SG’s strings are locked in place at
the post to ensure zero slippage and
complete tuning stability along with
quick, efficient string changes

From Cool Looks To
Expressive Distortion
The SG1820A is a unique member of
the new SG series lineup. It inherits the
traditional “flower pot” head inlay and an
outlined version of the “arrow” position
markers from the original SG series.
Hardware parts are all black nickel and it
comes in two different body color finishes;
all Black or Silver Burst. With its cool looks
and sleek image, it stands out from the other
SGs in the series.
The sound concept behind the SG1820A is
to deliver distortion that fits well with the
diverse heavy rock or metal sound.
When you think of distortion, you generally
11
Yamaha Electric Guitars
think of “heat”, “intensity”, “sweat”,
“aggression”, “conflict”. But we’ve taken
it the opposite direction, pursuing the
“beauty” found in distortion, revealing a
whole new sense of value in this sound. In
order to produce this tone, noise must be
extremely low, the sound must be clear and
full of presence, and balance from low-end
to high must be exceptional, even when
the sound is distorted. After consulting
artists at YASH (Yamaha Artist Services
Hollywood) and our Tokyo and London
offices we all agreed that a pair of low-noise,
high-gain, high-power active pickups by
http://www.yamaha-ar-network.com/
EMG—an EMG-85 on the front and an
EMG-81 at the rear—would be the best
choice for achieving this tone. The Alnico V
(EMG-85) and ceramic (EMG-81) magnet
combination delivers strong lows, bright
mids, clear and fat highs, with an excellent
distorted tone. Mounting these pickups in
the SG’s highly resonant body produces
excellent attack and sustain with a clear,
heavy tone and powerful sound.
The gap between its cool looks and
emotional distortion is nothing short of
dramatic. This is an instrument that is
going to open up a whole new world of
tonal possibilities.

Vivian
Campbell
and the SG1802
Born in 1962 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Vivian Campbell
started playing guitar at the age
of ten and by fifteen had teamed
up with Trevor Fleming to form
Sweet Savage, a British heavy
metal band that would later be
a major influence on Metallica.
In 1982 he joined the group
landed the lead guitar slotin
13
Yamaha Electric Guitars
heavy Metal powerhouse DIO,
with whom he collaborated for
three albums before moving on
to play with several different
bands including Whitesnake,
Riverdogs, and Shadow King. In
1992, he hooked up with rock
titans Def Leppard and has
remained with the group ever
since. Vivian recorded his first
solo album, the blues oriented
“Two Sides Of If”, in 2005. For
this album, he chose a Yamaha
AES1500, using it extensively to
explore his own musical roots.
His relationship with Yamaha
deepened a few years later
when the company asked Vivian
to collaborate on the development of the SG180 Series, which
led to him choosing an SG1802
with P-90 pickups as his main
instrument. in 2013, fans were
alarmed to hear that Vivian had
cancer. Rather than take time
off though, he kept himself busy
touring, and also recording a
new album with Def Leppard in
between his treatments. After
powering through chemotherapy and a busy schedule, his
cancer is now in remission allowing him to start working on
a new solo album. The SG1802
draws its bodylines from the
SG2000/1000 and, excluding
http://www.yamaha-ar-network.com/
some limited edition models, is
the first in the SG line to utilize
single coil pickups. Soap bar
Seymour Duncan SP90-3s in the
front and back deliver a sound
that lies somewhere between a
single coil pickup and a humbucker—a unique tone, but one
with a strong following. The
sound is powerfully punchy,
ranging from sweet and fat to
clean and crisp. Looking at the
1802 it exudes a classic vintage
vibe with simple dot position
markers, binding-free head design, barrel-type control knobs,
and either gold or black top
color finishes. Beneath all that
beauty things get serious with
cutting edge designs applied to
the pickups, hardware, body
shape, weight balance, sound,
and playability. Simply put, it’s
a great looking guitar with soulinspiring sound. What more
could you ask for?

SINGLE COIL SGs DELIVER
CLASSIC LOOKS UP TO
DATE SPECS
With the exception of some limited
edition models, the SG1802 is the
first guitar in the SG line to feature
single coil pickups. Inheriting
bodylines from the SG2000/1000,
the SG1802’s arch-top body is fitted
with a pair of soap bar pickups
to deliver classic rock tone that
matches its retro styling. The pair
of Seymour Duncan SP90-3s front
and rear provides the SG1802 with
a sound that lies between a single
coil pickup and a humbucker—
a unique tone that has a strong
following. They deliver a powerfully
punchy sound that ranges from
sweet and fat to clean and crisp.
The SG1802’s exterior is finished in
a classic vintage flavor. Simple dot
position markers, binding free head
design, barrel-type control knobs,
a choice between gold or black
top color finishes… its enough
to bring a smile to any guitar
lover’s face. Underneath all of that
lies some serious, cutting edge
designs; pickups, hardware, body
shape, weight balance, sound, and
playability. Put simply, the SG1802
delivers the sound and look of
a classic rock guitar in a refined
instrument with modern styling.
One wonders what path music
might have taken if this is the
instrument we put in the hands of
all those guitarists three decades
ago. Of course, we would like
today’s guitarists to play these
fine instruments as well. Its unique
sound will inspire your soul.

B al ance Is Imp or t an t !
How important is the sound of your bass to you?
You are, of course, playing with a sound you like. But when you’re playing in a band, sound balance is a very important factor.
It may sound good when played alone, but not as great as you think when it’s heard in a band. In a group situation, you want
to play with a sharp, well-defined tone that won’t get buried by the other instruments. Reaching this level of bassmanship
requires an understanding in the art of tone shaping.
W ha t k in d o f sou n d shoul d you ai m f or?
The two major factors that determine how your bass sounds are the way it is played, and equalization. “The way it is played,”
means how hard or soft the string is plucked, whether the string is played with fingers or a pick, muting, vibrato, and a wide
range of techniques bassists use to create different tonal qualities. While we don’t have the space to get into mastering these
techniques here, we can explain equalization.
Equalization refers to the tone or the bass, middle, and treble controls on a bass guitar, or the individual tone controls on and
amp or effect that are used to adjust the tone of the instrument.
So how can you use equalization when you play?
If you’re playing in a heavy rock band you want your bass to have a low-end tone that has more presence. If you are playing
some funky slap, you’ll need a sound that has more punch. If you are a technician playing fast detailed phrases you’ll want
a clear tone that articulates each note with precision. For ballads, a more delicate tone that accurately follows the expressive
nuances of your touch is required. These are just a few of the ways that equalization is used effectively when playing.

Looking Back on the BB Line
The first BB basses came out in the
late 1970s, at a time when American
manufacturers dominated the bass
market with instruments featuring bolton necks. Taking a different approach
to bass design, Yamaha introduced the
“Broad Bass” BB1200 in 1977 featuring
neck through construction in which the
neck runs down through the middle of
the body with the body’s upper and
lower halves attached to the neck.
Bassists were just starting to notice the
advantages to tone and playability that
the neck-through designs supplied,
and were impressed with the feel, tone,
attention to detail, and overall quality that
the BB1200 delivered. These were the
first “high-end” production basses to be
offered by a manufacturer and bassists
who tried them were simply blown away
with their tone and performance. With
the BB1200, Yamaha was clearly at the
forefront of neck-through design.
Yamaha’s research and development
people had, from early on, been traveling
to LA to talk with players like super
session bassists Abraham Laboriel and
Leland Sklar. They took instruments for
evaluation, listened and took careful note
of what these session greats made. When
they returned carrying new basses for
23
Yamaha Electric Basses
evaluation, these top-notch players were
amazed that Yamaha had incorporated
their suggestions into these new
instruments. Yamaha was one of the very
few manufacturers willing to listen to what
players wanted and make changes. They
were seriously committed to building
great instruments for professional players.
When the BB2000 came out, a lot of
pro bassists switched over. Their neckthrough designs delivered enhanced
sustain and a resonant tone was a hit
with bassists. That along with Yamaha’s
reputation for quality and playability
pushed Yamaha’s name to the forefront
in bass design. It also attracted high
profile bassists like Michael Anthony,
who picked up a BB2000 while touring
in Japan with Van Halen, and Nathan
East, who has played or recorded with
artists such as, Eric Clapton, Phil Collins,
George Harrison, Elton John, Steve
Winwood, Joe Pass, Michael Jackson,
Whitney Houston, Quincy Jones, Al
Jarreau, Stevie Wonder, and many, many
more. He was presented with a BB just
before a gig in Tokyo with Lee Ritenour.
He played it “right out of the box”, no
setup or adjustment and the fact
that he could do that and have
everything feel and play right left
http://www.yamaha-ar-network.com/
a huge impression on him that has had
him hooked on Yamaha’s ever since.
With its superior sound quality and tonal
versatility, the BB was a popular choice in
the recording studio. It was being heard
on more recordings and seen on more
stages and videos. Mid- and entry-level
instruments that offered an unbeatable
level of tone, playability and quality
become a popular choice for working
and beginner bassists, further boosting
Yamaha’s exposure and reputation and
solidifying Yamaha as a major bass builder.
Listening to what players have to say is
still a very important step in the design
and development of basses at Yamaha.
Still committed to building the best
passes possible.

New Pickups
(BB2000/1000 Series)
Designed specifically for the BB series,
these new pickups are the result of
numerous trials, inspections, and
artist evaluations conducted by the BB
development team, in the pursuit of the
ultimate passive pickup sound. Open
faced designs allow closer mounting
to the string to capture more string
vibration while blade type bobbins on
both front and rear handle aggressive
rock picking with even response
across strings. Alnico V magnets were
chosen for the front pickups to deliver
warmth and ceramic magnets on the
rear for punch.
Five-piece necks on all BB 2000
series basses are made with plies
of mahogany, which supplies silky
warmth, and maple, which produces
strong upper mids and bright highs.
This design also forms a durable and
stable neck that resists warping.
*BB1000 and BB400 series basses feature
5-ply maple and nato laminated necks.

I.R.A. treatment, another Yamaha
exclusive, is also applied to enhance
body resonance.
Together with the uniquely designed
saddle, body thru stringing efficiently
transfers string vibration to the body.
A Yamaha original design used on all
BB series basses places strings at
a 45º angle at the saddle reducing
stress, securing tension, and
maximizing vibration transfer. The
45º cut on the back end of the body
makes stringing easier and gives the
BB a unique look.

Creating a New Standard
Yamaha Redefines a Legend,
Creating the Ultimate Bolt-On Passive Bass
Focusing on maximizing string vibration,
transferring it efficiently to the body, then
capturing that tone with the pickups,
Yamaha has created a new standard
for passive bolt-on neck basses. The
BB2024X/2025X and BB2024/2025 are
high-end player instruments designed
for playing Rock, but in the hands of the
right bassist they are capable of handling
a wide variety of music. To develop these
basses, Yamaha gathered the best minds
in their fields; from professional musicians
and engineers, to specialists in woods,
finishes, pickups, and hardware design.
Basing development at the former YASH
(Yamaha Artist Services Hollywood) facility—Yamaha’s state-of-the-art research
and development facility now located at
Yamaha Artist Services Burbank (YASB) in
the heart of LA’s music scene—individual
prototypes were built, played, analyzed,
and evaluated to obtain feedback for the
next. This meticulous and time-consuming process was repeated over and again
until all those on the team agreed that
everything was right.
The final prototype incorporated a combination of elements that each contributes
to enhancing resonance and producing
the results the team was after. Among
those are; a three-piece body joined with
hard maple splines to deliver body resonance close to that of a one-piece body;
bridge and neck mounted on the center
body slab to increase transfer of string
vibration to the body; diagonal through
body stringing to reduce stress on the
string and increase transfer of string
vibration to the body, specially designed
bridge that obtains a clearer, well-shaped
tone along with a deeper low-end and
faster response; YASH designed passive
pickups that capture more string vibration
and deliver a warm deep tone with excellent punch; a nickel silver nut that delivers an open string sound close to that
of a fretted note; Yamaha original A.R.E.
technology which seasons the woods to
deliver a smooth, mature tone straight
from the factory; and I.R.A. treatment to
enhance body resonance.
With the final prototype complete it was
time to start production. The final and
most important stages of manufacturing
the BB2000 series basses take place at
YMC (Yamaha Music Craft) in Japan. Located at Yamaha’s corporate headquarters in Hamamatsu, Japan, YMC is home
to a team of world –class luthiers and
master craftsmen that are responsible for
creating some of the best instruments
available today. While machines and
leading-edge technologies play a vital
role in the manufacture of quality instruments, there is no substitute for the highly
refined skills and sensitivity of Yamaha’s
master luthiers and craftsmen, and it is
through this union of modern technology,
traditional techniques and experience that
the BB-2000 basses come into being.

Its All Attitude
Billy Sheehan’s career has taken him from
performing with the three-piece power trio
Talas, to headlining arenas with David Lee
Roth with whom he recorded two platinum
albums. Moving on he formed Mr. Big, a
band which found international success
achieving a #1 Billboard ranking in the U.S.
and 14 other countries with the hit single
“To Be With You”. His trailblazing heavy
rock playing style has won him numerous
“Best Rock Bass Player” awards both in
the U.S. and abroad, including an amazing
14 consecutive “Best Bass Player” awards
from Japan’s #1 music magazine “Player
Magazine”. He has performed on every
continent except for Africa and Antarctica.
Billy holds down the bottom end with his
Attitude Ltd II signature bass. Billy worked
closely with the designers and craftsmen at Yamaha who did an incredible job
designing and building this bass to Billy’s
demanding specifications. One point Billy
was very particular about was the joint
between the neck and body. He wanted a
joint that would stand up to his hard-hitting
playing style. The Yamaha team designed
a unique extended neck joint that provides
a solid bond between the body and neck
delivering the demanding level of stability
that Billy was looking for.
Crafted from maple, the neck on this
bass is big and thick to add to the instrument’s solid sound and great sustain. It
also features jumbo frets from 1 to 16 for
sustain, and scallops from frets 17 through
21. Finally, a Hipshot D-Tuner lets you
accurately drop the pitch of the “E” string
down to a “D” with the flick of a lever for
extended low-end range.
The Will Power pickups are custom made
by DiMarzio and deliver a heavy lowend tone with a solid fundamental. The
neck pickup produces a very deep
sounding tone with great low-end
definition. The middle pickup is
a P-style design that delivers
tremendous punch and midrange power. Both pickups
are routed to individual
output jacks for separate
amplification. Controls

MIKE STERN SIGNATURE MODEL
The Yamaha Pacifica 1611MS is synonymous
with Mike Stern. The “MS” designates this
instrument as the Mike Stern signature, an
instrument that brings his vision of an ideal
guitar to reality.
When we first talked to Mike about creating
a signature instrument for him, he was quite
attached to a particular solid body single
cutaway that he had been playing for some time.
So when we asked him what kind of instrument
he wanted, he requested that it be based on the
guitar he was playing at the time. Cornell Dupree
is another jazz guitarist who prefers a solid body
guitar and plays a Yamaha signature as well.
Both of these guitarists like the playability that
the solid body offers, but have taken different
paths when it comes to sound requirements.
Mike requested a single cutaway design but he
wanted a sound that was quite different. For
this reason, the hardware used on his signature
guitar as well as the materials used for the
body are a lot different from what you find on a
typical single cutaway.
So let’s take a look at the PAC1611MS and see
what makes it special.
The body is a two-piece design crafted from
light ash. Attached to the body is a one-piece
V-type neck made of maple. Hardware is mostly
the same as you would find on a single cutaway
except for the bridge, which is a six-way design
that lets you adjust strings individually. Pickups
consist of a Duncan ’59 on the front, and
a Duncan Hot Rail close to the bridge. The
Hot Rail is a single size humbucker unit that
incorporates two blades with over-wound coils.
This guitar is designed to deliver an articulate
tone without any unwanted overtones, plus
sweet and fat mids and lows. This fits Mike’s
playing style well, letting him start a tune with a
soft feel that transforms into a growling rock feel
at the end.
The instrument that Mike in fact uses is slightly
different from the version that is available to the
public. The body on Mike’s guitar is crafted from
a slab of ash specially chosen for its fine grain
and high density. This produces an excellent
response and a heavy, warm tone but makes the
instrument considerably heavy, so we made the
version available to the public a little lighter.
Mike actually owns only one 1611MS, and he
has used it for recording and live performances
ever since it has been in his possession. This
guitar has appeared on his album covers and in
photos seen in magazines and on the web. The
wear on the neck is testament to how much he
is attached to this guitar. He likes it so much
that he has been playing it devotedly, with
regular maintenance of course, for over 12 years
now. This is definitely an ultimate guitar.

Refining Tradition
to Perfection
Warmer and milder than their solid body
counterparts, hollow and semi-hollow body
guitars are quite versatile instruments delivering
a soulful tone that can handle everything from
Rock to Country to Jazz to Blues. Yamaha
has refined hollow body and semi-hollow body
designs to perfection, combining traditional
construction with innovative electronics and
pickup systems. Each instrument is built with
outstanding craftsmanship to deliver stunning
looks, exceptional quality, amazingly versatile
sound, and an extraordinary playing experience.

PAC212
PAC212VQM
Clean lines, contoured solid body designs, triple pickup configurations incorporating
two singles and a humbucker, 5-position selector switch with coil tap, block bridge
with tremolo—Pacifica series guitars achieve a high level of perfection in tonal
capabilities, playability and styling. In this section, we would like to feature a couple of
beautiful examples from the Pacifica lineup, the PAC212VFM and the PAC212VQM.
The PAC212VFM features a body top of flamed maple. Resembling the stripes of a
tiger, this rare and beautiful pattern results from environmental changes that occur as
the tree grows.
The body top on the PAC212VQM is quilted maple. Like the flamed maple, its
beautiful patterns are formed due to environmental changes occurring during growth.
While it produces a tone similar to that of the PAC212VFM, complex patterns in the
wood vary from instrument to instrument.
The heads on both of these guitars feature the same figured woods and colored
finishes used on their bodies. Both instruments are available in three colors,
Translucent Black, Tobacco Brown Sunburst, and Caramel Brown. All color finishes are
designed to bring out the beauty of the wood’s grain, and they look striking on stage
as changes in the light angle cause the patterns to change character.

BIilly Sheehan SignatureModel
Nathan East SignatureModel
Billy Sheehan began his relationship
with Yamaha using a customized
BB3000. The BB714BS goes back to
Billy’s roots, bringing a fresh approach
to Billy’s original BB. Designed in close
collaboration with the Yamaha Artist
Services team at their former Hollywood
facility (Yamaha’s state-of-the-art YASH
facility is now located at Yamaha Artist
Services Burbank, YASB), this bass is
built from the ground up incorporating
the best features of Billy’s Attitude bass.
The BB714BS starts with a body of alder
designed in a classic BB shape that fits
comfortably against your body when
played. Positioned between the neck and
bridge is a split single coil style pickup
that delivers classic BB tone. This
pickup delivers a great modern Rock
tone that is bright with great presence,
punchy, full, and powerful. Positioned
between the split pickup and the neck
is a custom designed “woofer” pickup;
a double humbucker specially wound
to deliver great low-end tone. Played as
is, it produces a fat, dark, low-end tone
The list of hits that Nathan East has played
on is long and countless. The people he
has played and recorded with reads like
a Who’s Who of top artists in the music
business. Starting out on cello in junior
high school, Nathan didn’t take up the
bass until he was 14. In high school, he
played in a wide range of groups ranging
from jazz ensemble, marching band, and
choir, to top-40 cover bands.
His first big break came when he was
asked to join Barry White’s “Love Unlimited
Orchestra”. While still a teenager, he was
recording with Barry White and playing
major venues such as the Apollo Theater,
Madison Square Garden, and Kennedy
Center. After earning his Bachelor of Arts
Degree in Music Performance from the
University of California San Diego, he
moved to Los Angeles where he launched
a successful music career playing and
recording with a host of top artists such
as Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Elton
John, Phil Collins, Whitney Houston, and
many, many more. He is also co-founder
of the group Fourplay with whom he has
recorded and toured.
An extremely versatile player, Nathan has
long relied on BB basses for his tonal needs.
His first Yamaha was a BB that he obtained
while touring in Japan with Lee Ritenour. Its
sound, the way it felt, and its overall quality
were impressive, but what impressed him
most is it felt and played right without
needing alteration or adjustment. Nathan
has been hooked on Yamaha’s ever since.
The BB NE2 is Nathan’s signature model. Its
body is made of alder topped with maple to
deliver a fat sound with plenty of definition.
Billy’s
New BB Bass
much like the Attitude’s neck pickup. But
this “woofer” pickup is wired through a
high-cut switch activated by pulling up
on the push/pull tone switch. Activating
this circuit delivers a fat, ultra low 60’s
tone that will shake the house.
Attached firmly to the body is a maple
neck topped with rosewood. Thinner
and trimmer than the neck found on
Billy’s Attitude basses, the neck on
the BB714BS is slim, trim, and fast for
greater playing comfort. A solid brass
bridge contributes to greater sustain
and clarity and like all the hardware, is
finished with a black nickel finish.
The BB714BS is a versatile and powerful
instrument capable of handling a wide
range of musical styles from vintage 60’s
Rock to Funk, Blues, Jazz, or Soul. And
it delivers it all with the playability,
tone, and stability that Billy
demands on stage.

Front and back are contoured to provide
the player with a compact, well-fitting

The BBNEII incorporates a neck through
design with a 34-inch scale, 5-piece
maple and premium grade mahogany
neck sandwiched between the body. The
through body design offers greater sustain
and better neck stability. Strings are
strung through a BPZ-7 bridge designed
with individual machined saddles that
deliver precise intonation, a low profile for
greater playing ease, and an elegant look.
The individual saddle pieces also reduce
interference from other vibrating strings
to produce a purer tone. White pearloid
tuners matching the abalone inlay round
out the looks.
Electronics include a stacked Alnico V
humbuckers designed in close collaboration
with Nathan. Both pickups run through a
5-control active electronics circuit based
on Nathan’s “Magic Box” stomp box. The
circuit features a 3-band equalizer with a
switchable mid-cut filter that allows the
bassist to obtain a wide variety of tones
from this highly versatile bass guitar.

A Bass With
Extensive Range
John Patitucci gained international recognition as a member of Chick Corea’s legendary Elektric Band and in the mid
1980s. John’s sensitivity, inventiveness, and tone have established him as one of today’s most influential bassists while
his ability to cover any genre made him a sought after studio musician and jazz artist, performing and recording with
a diverse array of artists playing everything from Classical and Afro-Cuban to Blues, Pop and Jazz. In addition to his
notable work as a sideman, he has led his own groups releasing several remarkable albums.
As a leader and sideman, John relies on his signature TRBJP2 6-string bass. John joined as a Yamaha Artist during his
days with the Elektric Band and soon began working with a team of designers on a bass that would become his signature
6-string. The 4-ply body design uses main layers of ash and alder to provide a solid fundamental tone for solid, low-end
comping. Complimenting this are top and back layers of figured maple that brighten the high-end for soloing.
Attached to the body is a bolt-on, super long-scale, 35-inch maple neck designed to deliver greater punch from the low
B string and a very tight, focused sound. With 26 frets on the ebony fingerboard, the TRB JPII has an extensive playing
range spanning a little over four octaves. Sculpted body cutaways provide easy access to the upper reaches of the neck,
which is trimmed with custom pearl and gold tuners and crescent shaped mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays.
The JPII is fitted with a pair of Alnico V humbuckers positioned in a J-style configuration. In addition to standard
volume and blend controls, an active 3-band EQ with a parametric-style midrange control delivers incredibly versatile
tone shaping capabilities that allow players to achieve a versatile range of tone, power, and presence.
Premium construction and incredible custom specifications make the TRB JPII an instrument capable for any genre or
playing style.

Revolutionary Design Delivers
Massive Tone From Incredibly
Lightweight Guitars and Basses
Since its introduction in the mid 1980s, the RGX and RBX lines have attracted
a wide following of guitarists with their radical designs, great playability, and
superior tone. With the most recent models, Yamaha has revolutionized guitar
and bass design, breaking down the boundaries between weight and tone with
instruments that deliver massive sound from incredibly lightweight bodies.
The A2 design team set out to design lightweight instruments that provide the
player with greater playing freedom without sacrificing sound quality. Intensive
research and development led to the creation of Alternate Internal Resonance
technology or A.I.R. This groundbreaking technology utilizes a solid body
design made up of two materials; an outer layer of hard tonal wood used for
the instrument’s top and back, and a core of lightweight, resonant softwood
sandwiched in between. Three metal sound tubes installed underneath the
bridge plate and passing through the body transmit string vibration to the body,
exciting the different body layers and returning body vibration to the bridge.
Strings passing through the body from the back of the instrument add to this
by transferring string energy to the entire body more efficiently. Weighing about
30% less than a standard electric guitar (20% less in the case of the bass),
the resulting instrument achieves incredible tone with a big, open sound that
resonates throughout the instrument’s entire body.
To compliment the tonal characteristics of the A.I.R. body, original pickups were
developed at the custom shop at YASH (Yamaha Artists Services Hollywood)
with input from some of the world’s greatest players. An LED pickup indicator
surrounding the volume control provides the player with a bright visual
indication of which pickup is in use. A minimalist bridge design keeps the
playing surface snag free for greater playability when playing close to the bridge.
The RGX A2 and RBX A2 models offer the light weight that many players are
looking for while delivering remarkable tone and playability. Impressive sustain
with rich tone that clear, heavy, and powerful from and instruments that are
light and comfortable to play.

A new take on classic tone

Yamaha’s THR Series—
Much More Than An Amp
Yamaha really came up with a winner with its
revolutionary THR amps. Conceived to provide players
with just what they need when they’re away form
the stage or studio, the original THR10 and THR5
captivated guitarists from around the globe with big
tone and just the right mix of features. The idea of a
“third amp” proved highly popular, changing the tonal
expectations of guitarists who soon realized that the
gig or session isn’t the only place you should expect
perfect tone. Requests for more genre specific models
resulted in the release of three more models; the
THR10C for authentic boutique amp tone, the THR10X
for high-gain stack amp tone, and the THR5A for
electric-acoustic tone.
With five models on the market you’d think the THR
development team would take it easy for a while and
enjoy their success, but instead, they’ve continued
listening to user feedback and gone back to create a
Version 2 upgrade of the original THR10/5. The new
THR10 (V.2) and THR5 (V.2) feature new speaker
simulations that deliver more depth and tonal
character than ever before. Version 2 also gives you
better sound quality delivering cleaner cleans and
47
THR Series
dirtier distortion. The units still incorporated the same
highly portable design and run on a two-way AC or
battery power supply so you can take yours out and
sound great no matter where you go.
All units offer high-fidelity performance making them
great for quality audio playback. With both AUX IN
and USB connections provided, connecting an audio
playback device or a computer to the unit is easy and
being able to practice along in hi-fi sound is truly
spectacular. When inspiration strikes, the USB port
and a bundled copy of CUBASE AI lets you easily
lay down tracks in this full-fledged DAW application.
And for those that like to get in and fine-tune sound
settings, you can download Yamaha’s THR Editor,
which provides detailed control of the THR’s tone,
effects, and overall sound.
With five different units to choose from, each offering
its own distinctive sound, feel, and tone, it’s simply a
matter of picking the unit that suits your style the best.
After that, you’re probably going to enjoy playing your
guitar a whole lot more.

small amp with a small sound.

Development—Working With Musicians, Bringing Ideas To Reality
Yamaha’s goal is to create instruments that meet the real world needs of professional and amateur musicians who rely on
their instruments for their livelihood, art, and enjoyment. Helping to meet these needs, the company founded Yamaha
Guitar Development (YDG) to build high-end guitars that satisfy the world’s most demanding guitarists. YDG also provides
the company with the opportunity to work directly with players in the development of instrument designs and features.
Communicating directly with players and providing them with opportunities to evaluate instruments and suggest improvements
is the most meaningful and effective way to refine instruments. To provide as much opportunity as possible, Yamaha has three
locations, L.A., London, and Tokyo, where designers and technicians can get in touch and work with artists around the world.
One of these facilities is Yamaha Artist Services, Burbank (YASB), a state-of-the-art research and development center located
in the heart of L.A.’s music scene. Here, a special team of top guitar designers and craftsmen work with artists to design and
create innovative instruments and features utilizing the wood and metal shops, electronics lab, and recording facilities at YASB.
Development teams and musicians working closely together has always played an important role in the design, development,
and refinement of many of Yamaha’s instruments. Artists know their own needs and most know the needs of musicians around
them. Dedicating time and resources at this level provides Yamaha designers with ways that current instruments can be improved
and keeps them well-informed of developments that can be applied to development and production.
In this way, Yamaha relies not only on its designers and craftsmen when developing and refining instruments, but also on
musicians that use them.
YASB ( Yamaha Artist Services, Burbank )
Located in the heart of LA’s music scene, Yamaha Artist Services, Burbank, or YASB, is a state-of-the-art research and development
centre and home to the Yamaha Guitar Custom Shop.
The shop is run by a special team of top guitar designers and craftsmen, working with artists to design and create innovative
instruments and features utilizing YASB’s wood and metal shops, electronics lab, and recording facilities.
Artist feedback plays a crucial role in our approach to guitar design and particularly at YASB, it is the most meaningful and effective
way to refine our instruments.
Many of Yamaha’s guitars are initially conceived, developed, tested and brought to life here by the YASB team.
YMC ( Yamaha Music Craft )
Yamaha Music Craft is a special facility located at Yamaha’s corporate headquarters in Hamamatsu, Japan.
Assembled here is a team of world-class luthiers and master craftsmen whose purpose is to create the best
instruments available today.
Guitar production here absolutely depends on the craftsman’s senses. From wood selection to final inspection,
each stage in the process involves the highly refined skills of our experienced luthiers. Machines and leading-edge
technologies do play a vital role here, but in perfect harmony with craft guitar-building – there is no substitute for
the skills and sensitivity of our master luthiers.
It is here that all of Yamaha’s high-end guitars are brought into being through a union of modern technologies like
A.R.E. and I.R.A., that only a company like Yamaha are capable of developing, and the high level of craftsmanship
and traditional skills that our master craftsmen possess.

Craftsmanship—Turning
The Designs Into Great
Instruments For You
With all the advanced technologies we
have at our disposal, it simply isn’t possible to fully automate the production of
quality guitars. The complexity of tasks in
addition to the need for constant awareness of the materials being used and
the ability to make minute adjustments
for variations cannot be performed with
current technology. So while machines
do play a vital role in the production of
Yamaha instruments, there is still no
substitute for the skills and sensitivity of
experienced craftsmen throughout the
production process.
Turning designs into great instruments
55
Yamaha Guitar Development
http://www.yamaha-ar-network.com/
requires a great deal of experience, skill,
and coordination. Technical drawings
alone cannot convey the intended tone or
an instrument, or even much of the technical skills required to create the desired
characteristics or sound.
Before any guitar reaches the construction stage at Yamaha, the plans and
intentions of the designs must be passed
on to the chief craftsmen at the factory,
who will then develop appropriate production processes to build the instrument.
Every guitar is different thus requiring
new methods, tools, and a workflow in
order to achieve consistent high quality.
Relegating processes to machine or the
craftsmen’s skilled hands is an important
factor. Processes such as fret slot cutting,
which demands a high level of precision,
or basic neck shaping, which is highly
repetitive, are best assigned to machines
that can do the work with greater precision and speed. Other tasks that involve
fine-tuning require individual attention
and this is where the skills, experience,
and attention to detail of Yamaha craftsmen shine.
To achieve the highest quality possible
sometimes requires overdoing things. An
excellent example is the way Yamaha pre-
matches bodies and necks on acoustic
guitars. They know from experience that
the fit between body and neck must be
perfect to maximize tone and response,
so applying extra effort to ensure that the
fit is ideal in every instrument adds value
to the instrument through higher quality.
Great effort is also spent to ensure that
every guitar and bass leaves the factory
in optimum condition. Final assembly is
performed at workstations designed to
make processes as smooth and efficient
as possible, and detailing such as fret
leveling and finishing are performed at
the factory, to a degree normally only
http://www.yamaha-ar-network.com/
available in a custom shop.
Ensuring that this level of quality and
consistency is maintained into the future,
Yamaha places great importance on
passing know-how on to young craftsmen. Hands-on apprenticeships ensure
skills are fully passed on from person to
person making sure that both basic skills
and developed innovations are effectively
passed on. This allows Yamaha guitars to
continuously evolve and gives their instruments a significant musical advantage.

Take the stage by storm
Built for the stage, the APX Series was first introduced in 1987, and has since
become a mainstay for performers who just want to plug in and play. With builtin pre amps and pickups, cutaway necks, and a big sound that belies their thinline
bodies, the APX Series offers playability and performance reminiscent of an electric
guitar and a crisp, clear, tone. Expertly-crafted non-scalloped X-type bracing allows
the guitar’s top to sing and maximizes the resonance of the unique body shape for a
full, natural tone that will stand out in any live mix.

CPX is great for
any purpose.
It satisfies your need in acoustic guitar anywhere from living
room, studio to stage. It plays naturally unplugged and
it screams when lined out. The deep body CPX produces
rich acoustic tone and resonance. Great tonal range from
deep lows to silky highs; this is a loud boomy, yet sensitive
acoustic guitar. Even with terrific body resonance, feedback
is well controlled. Because of the special bracing pattern
and Yamaha’s new original calibrated preamp, you will
never experience feedback.

Japanese craftsmanship has also taken
root in this factory through technical
training in Japan and regular day-to-day
communications.
In addition, we continue to streamline
the work process at an ever-increasing
pace through a greater understanding of
the problems that employees face, and
take pride in the fact that we can provide
products to our customers with Yamaha
Quality at prices they can afford.
I am quite sure that customers will be very
satisfied with this L-series. Go out and pick one
up, strum a few notes, and you will be convinced.
At Yamaha Music Craft our craftsmen create
each and every guitar with time and care using
a solid base of traditional techniques while also
incorporating modern processing machinery.
One of the processes uses a very time intensive
traditional production method involving a
new clear-cole primer coat containing a stone
powder, “Chalk Filler*” in order to improve the
response and dynamic range of the instrument.
We will continue to pursue the creation of “truly
great guitars” without compromise.
We have improved the very essence of
Japanese-made high-grade guitars with
the positioning of the braces, the neck
shape, A.R.E. processing of the face veneer,
and other innovations. We used passive
pickups so as not to spoil the raw sound
of the guitar body, and also to make it
possible to use on stage. We really want
musicians who like an authentic acoustic
sound onstage try out this series.
L16D/16/6 - Production Supervisor
Hiroshi Sakurai
L56/36/26 Guitar Designer
For the development of this model update,
we put a lot of thought into the optimum
design and conducted numerous acoustic
simulations and other tests, improved the
“raw sound”, and particularly emphasized
enriching the middle-low tone range.
A part of this development was the
incredibly thin coat of paint over the entire
instrument, and we feel that musicians will
really be able to feel the wood of the neck.

BODY SELECTION
Whether you prefer a full-sized LL original jumbo, small-sized LS body, or medium jumbo-sized LJ, the choice is yours. Each of these body
styles is represented in each class, letting you choose the instrument that meets your requirements for sound, style, and affordability.
LL (Yamaha Original Jumbo Body)
LL56 CUSTOM, LL36, LL26, LL16D, LL16, LL16-12, LL16L, LL16M, LL6, LL6M
* The LL16D is a deluxe version of the LL16.
This traditional Yamaha body style is known for its rich volume, a wide dynamic range, and excellent tonal balance. Its
beautiful transparent tone is the result of a design that has been refined by artists around the globe.
LS (Small Body)
LS56 CUSTOM, LS36, LS26, LS16, LS16M, LS6, LS6M
The small-bodied LS has a long history with Yamaha. Featuring excellent tonal balance, it delivers a big, confident
sound for its size,—yet it is also ideal for delicate passages and highly recommended for fingerstyle guitarists.
LJ (Medium Jumbo Body)
LJ56 CUSTOM, LJ36, LJ26, LJ16, LJ6
The LJ body shape is designed to provide guitarists with a comfortable fit when seated. While volume output is a little
less than the LL, the LJ offers a wide dynamic range, a low-end with strong presence, and a crisp tone that accommodates a wide range of playing styles from lead to strumming.
CHOICE OF ROSEWOOD OR
MAHOGANY BACK AND SIDES
The lineup now includes models with back and sides of mahogany (LL16M/6M, LS16M/6M) letting you choose according to your playing style and tonal needs. Rosewood models offer wellbalanced tone from low to high, while mahogany provides rich midrange with quick response.

[Rosewood Back/Side]
Incorporating some of the refinements found on our high-end instruments, such as tops treated with our
exclusive A.R.E. processing, a new bracing pattern, and 5-ply necks with a thinner, more comfortable
taper enhances the sound quality and playing ease of the L16 and L6 models. Rosewood back and sides
delivers greater high to low frequency balance and the newly developed SRT Zero Impact Pickup system
makes these instruments equally at home in the studio or on stage.
L16M/L6M
[Mahogany Back/Side]
Back and sides of mahogany give these L16 and L6 models a rich low to mid-range tone
and faster response. Both the 16 and 6 models instruments are available in LL and LS body
versions so you can choose the body style that best fits your sound and playing requirements.
The newly developed SRT Zero Impact Pickup system is also incorporated in both versions
letting you amplify the instrument when needed.

If you’re looking for an entry-level acoustic guitar to get started on, you can’t go wrong with one of Yamaha’s FGSeries guitars. Since its introduction in the late 1960’s, the FG has provided more guitarists with a solid, quality, first
instrument. Refined over the years, the FG still offers the best tone, playability, and quality for the money. Today’s
models feature non-scalloped X-bracing and reverse L-block neck joints originally developed for use on Yamaha’s flagship
L-Series guitars, and deliver a rich, resonant tone and quality feel that are unrivaled at this level. Inspiring millions of
musicians over the last 40-plus years, Yamaha’s FG will inspire you to keep playing for years to come.

Bracing Pattern
The main purpose of bracing on an acoustic guitar is to
strengthen the top against the tension of the strings. But by
modifying the vibrations of the guitar’s top, the bracing also
serves to create the guitar’s tonal signature.
Yamaha’s FG guitars use a non-scalloped X-bracing design
with each of the eight braces carefully positioned to tailor
the guitar’s sound, perfectly complementing the tonewoods
used in order to create the FG’s unmistakable combination
of clear and balanced tone with incredible control. The use
of non-scalloped bracing ensures your FG will retain its tone,
response and stability for a lifetime of playing.
Thin Finish
All Yamaha FG guitars feature our signature
ultra-thin finish. The perfect combination of
advanced finish technology and artisan handspraying techniques ensure the rich, high-gloss
finish on FG models is around 0.25mm thin, for
the minimum restriction of vibrations of the
wood and a louder, fuller tone, but remaining
incredibly strong and resilient.

Cutaway
The joint between body and neck is
essential to an acoustic guitar. Not
just for physical stability, but also
for sound – the efficient transfer
of vibrations from neck to body is
crucial in creating a full, balanced
tone. All Yamaha acoustic guitars
feature a hand-fitted dovetail neck
joint. This precisely crafted joint
uses no metal parts and gives the
guitar the best neck-to-body contact
for outstanding tone along with
incredible strength and stability.
Acoustic-electric FG guitars
feature a classic Venetian
style body cutaway. The
cutaway models offer
enhanced upper fret access
with full-bodied tone and
classic style.

The Silent Guitar is equipped with a

developed by Yamaha supplies four
effects (room reverb, hall reverb, echo,

Without a resonant body the Silent

A LINE OUT jack lets you connect
the Silent Guitar to a guitar amp

the instrument to a recording device
for recording, or a tuner to tune.

“It produces all I want as a guitarist,
and it is very easy to play!”
Rodrigo y Gabriela
They take to the stage equipped with
little more than a pair of acoustic guitars
and put on some of the most exhilarating
shows, filled with energy and passion.
The amazing guitar duo, Rodrigo and
Gabriela, cover a wide range of popular
rock tunes ranging from “Enter” and
“Orion” by the Slash Metal band
Metallica, “Wish You Were Here” by
Pink Floyd, “Stairway To Heaven” by
Led Zeppelin, and the jazz classic “Take

Five”. It’s all the same music to them,
and when it’s in their hands, everything
they play becomes theirs.
Using just two acoustics, they burn
through a wide variety of styles that
include Rock, Slash, Blues, Fusion,
Latin, and Flamenco. Their playing
style is both unique and demanding,
using the guitar more like a percussion
instrument at times. To meet their
individual needs, they have chosen
http://www.yamaha-ar-network.com/
the NTX and NCX nylon string guitars
by Yamaha. Their relationship with
Yamaha has given them the ability to
realize the unique sound they have
been searching for.
“The NX guitars let us obtain all of the
sounds that we want. They have great
expressive power!”
It is through their partnership with
Yamaha that has enabled them to
realize the sound that they were aiming
for. For the guitar designers at Yamaha,
they worked hard, continuously making
improvements to the instruments in
order to meet their expectations.
New sounds lead to new music, New
playing styles make instruments
evolve. Rodrigo, Gabriela, and Yamaha
are engaged in the birth of new music
and new sound.
PROFILE
Both from Mexico, Gabriela Quintero and Rodrigo Sanchez were heavily influenced by Thrash
Metal bands such as Black Sabbath, Metallica, Megadeth. Deciding to try something new, they
took what little money they had and headed to Dublin, “a place we knew absolutely nothing
about,” says Gabriela. There, they refined their unique playing style busking on the streets.
Fascinating audiences with their impressive performances, their reputation spread around the
globe. Their first album, the self-titled “Rodrigo y Gabriela”, topped the charts in Ireland and sold
half a million copies worldwide when it was released in 2006. Their next two releases, “Live in
Japan” in 2008 and “11:11”, a tribute to 11 artists that inspired them and released in 2009, have
enjoyed strong sales. In 2011 they collaborated with Hans Zimmer on the soundtrack for “Pirates
of the Caribbean—On Stranger Tides”, then teamed up with Peter Asher, as co-producer to start
work on their next release, “Area 52”, an album in which they go back re-arranging some of their
favorite songs for a 13-piece Cuban orchestra known as C.U.B.A. For 2014 they have announced
the forthcoming release of a new album and tour dates.

Lee Ritenour Talks
About the NX
Lee Ritenour’s career took off quickly. It
wasn’t long after his first session at the age
of 16, that he became a very in demand
session player in the mid 70’s, which led
to a long running solo career starting in
’76 at the age of 24. Celebrating 50 years
of playing the guitar in 2010, he has, over
the course of his career, recorded over 40
extremely versatile. I played it sometimes
very melodic, very chordal type solos,
single notes, then hitting it very hard, very
rhythmic playing with effects. The NX is
much more versatile that I thought. It’s
fantastic.”
“I think electric guitar players who only
play electric guitar sometimes have a hard
albums and played on over 3000 sessions,
received one Grammy Award, 17 Grammy
nominations, numerous #1 spots in guitar
polls as well as a host of other awards.
Lee has been a Yamaha artist for over
three decades with our GC series classical
guitars and also plays the Silent Nylon
String Guitar.
Most recently he has been playing the new
NX series, The comments that follow are his.
time playing the classical guitar. If anything
they pick up the steel-string guitar because
it’s a little closer to the electric guitar.
But this NX is so well balanced, and the
strings are so close to the neck, it’s so easy
to play. And it makes you want to play. I
really recommend it for any electric guitar
players who are curious about the classical
guitar. Also, because of the versatility of
the pickup system, you can get into some
heavy strumming on this guitar, or you
can treat it like a real classical guitar. It all
works great.”
”So, just a few things about the NX series.
We’re not using a microphone to amplify
the guitar. It is a completely new and
revolutionary pickup system. The team at
Yamaha really did a lot of research on the
pickup and I’m very happy with its sound.
It’s very versatile the way they have it
organized. You can blend the two pickups,
bring up the bass side pickup, or bring up
the treble side. You can have them even,
or one a little brighter or a little darker. It
has an EQ and an automatic tuner so it’s
a very modern, contemporary system. And
it has plenty of output so you can do some
“damage” with this. A couple of other
things that I love about the guitar, is the
slimmer neck on NTX series guitars which
makes them so easy to play. It just feels so
smooth. It’s easier to play this guitar faster
than a traditional classical guitar so it even
helps with your speed.”
“Playing the NX was really a big eye
opener for me. I had a full rhythm section
playing, at times pretty strong, and I
used this pickup system, it was fantastic.
The guitar has a lot of great dynamics,

Exceeds its Class in Quality
Yamaha’s CG series classical guitars are created using the experience and technology gained from decades of hand crafting fine classical guitars.
The series offers ten models divided into five grades making it easy to find a guitar that fits your sound and design requirements.
The CG series has been redesigned with improvements made to functions and designs that are key to the classical guitar.
In redesigning the series, we first focused on improving resonance. The CG guitars offer dramatic improvements in sound response, volume, and tone,
resulting in instruments that are rich in resonance. With greater expressive power they offers richer expressive capabilities.
Concentrating on playability next, we focused on neck design, grip, and finish. As a result, these guitars offer greater left hand fit, and improved
playability with their lower string height. Even attention to details, like a new easier to turn tuning peg design, provides these instruments with a high
level of performance increasing player satisfaction.
Lastly appearance. Bright colors and simple designs keep the instrument looking fresh. Both the headstock and bridge designs are simple and attractive
while warm colors and detailed rosettes keep appearances bright and vibrant.
Yamaha’s CG series classical guitars are crafted with great attention to detail using decades of experience in the art of handcrafting fine guitars.
They deliver rich tone, outstanding playability, and pleasing aesthetics that exceed their class in quality. It is our wish that the instrument you choose,
brings you satisfaction for years to come.

Blending Piezo and Mic Sound Sources
SRT Delivers Amazingly Authentic Acoustic Tone
When professional guitarists want to record real acoustic guitar tone, they’ll record the guitar with a microphone.
That holds true for guitarists who prefer using electric-acoustics on stage as well. Electric-acoustics are very effective
in live situations due to their ability to adjust sound and balance volume with the other instruments in the band. But
the sound that electric-acoustics deliver is merely the amplified sound from a pickup attached to the bridge or the
top, and lacks true acoustic resonance and ambiance. True acoustic guitar tone that you hear on recordings only
exists in the recording studio where experienced sound engineers have the means to capture that sound.
Yamaha’s new SRT system lets you create that same studio recorded sound. The system lets you choose from three
different high-end mic types as well as mic positioning. It also lets you obtain more detailed sound by blending the
sound with that from the piezo pickup and adjusting resonance.
The SRT series brings studio quality acoustic guitar sound to the stage that will amaze your audiences.

★ Keep Feedback Under Control
These instruments incorporate Yamaha’s original
A.F.R. (Auto Feedback Reduction), which automatically detects the frequency causing the feedback
and applies a notch filter to suppress the problem
frequency. When feedback occurs, simply switch the
A.F.R. button ON. Up to five filters can be applied.
Blend piezo pickup and microphone sources to create a wide palette of tonal variations. Blending the sound from the piezo pickup
with the sound from the built-in mic adds sharpness.

Models equipped with Yamaha’s proprietary SRT Pickup system feature a specially designed piezoelectric element
installed within the saddle. This system delivers exceptional response, stable resonance, high-quality tone, and rich
expressive power. The blend knob lets you mix piezo pickup and microphone tones to create a wide range of tonal
variations. Increasing the microphone in the mix adds sharpness while the piezo creates a more modern sound.

BASS TREBLE
Yamaha electric acoustic guitars have consistently used piezo pickups
to reproduce the pure sounds of the acoustic guitar. But piezo pickups
tended to overreact to changes in attack, which in turn caused
distortion. To achieve ideal playability, we had to improve the way that
these dynamics were controlled.
To provide a solution to this issue, the new pickup was designed with
a multilayer structure consisting of six layers of different materials.
This dampens excessive vibration from the topboard while picking
up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding
dynamic balance. Also, because the pickup is fitted directly beneath
the topboard, it functions as a transducer attached to the body.

System 65/66 features an under-saddle piezo pickup developed by
Yamaha. Controls include a 3-band equalizer, an adjustable mid-range
frequency control, and a precision chromatic tuner for optimum sound
tailoring. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that
provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality.
Designed for steel string guitars, Yamaha’s exclusive A.R.T. Pickup System has gained a high
reputation among guitarists for its ability to produce highly realistic tone that comes extremely
close to the instrument’s original unprocessed sound. Based on this advanced pickup, System
61 is designed especially for use on nylon string instruments. Installed in the NX Series guitars it
faithfully reproduces a wide range of playing styles, from finger picking to playing with a pick to
percussive flamenco through the line out jack.

A.R.E. ( Acoustic Resonance Enhancement )
A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) is an original wood reforming technology developed by
Yamaha. Instruments made with woods processed with this technology produce a distinct tonal richness,
just like vintage instruments that have been played for years.
A.R.E. technology uses precisely controlled humidity and
temperature to manipulate the molecular properties of the wood
into a more acoustically ideal condition (similar to the molecular
characteristics of woods in instruments that have been played for
years). The process is chemical free, making it an environmentally
friendly process as well.
The following alterations lead to their corresponding acoustically
ideal conditions:
• Enhanced low range sustain produces rich sound and thick tone.
• Increased high range response and decay produces a sharper
tone and simultaneously controls sonic dissonance.
The graphs shown below are from actual acoustic spectral measurements taken under controlled conditions with a
current L series guitar and a new L series guitar with A.R.E.
Notice the enhanced low range sustain and improved high range attack on the A.R.E. guitar. It is also clear that high
range dissonance has a shorter delay after the attack. This is hard proof that A.R.E. is effective at producing the desired
changes in the wood’s acoustic characteristics. These instruments have received high marks from a great number
of musicians, and most of their evaluations are identical to evaluations for guitars that have been played for years.
Comments such as “excellent resonance”, “warm”, “mature”, “well settled”, and “clear” were common terms used in
the evaluations.

IRA ( Initial Response Acceleration )
If you’ve ever played another guitarist’s instrument and not been able to get the same sound, it’s probably because you are playing a different
style than what the guitar is used to. After playing the same guitar for years, the guitar adapts to the guitarist’s playing style. It takes time for a
new guitar to adapt to your own way of playing. Stress found between parts like finish, woods, body, neck, fingerboard, nut, bridge, etc., must
be released before all of the parts can resonate together as an instrument. It takes time and a lot of playing for this to happen.
Using IRA technology, stresses like those between the finish and wood are released by applying specific vibrations to the completed guitar.
Once IRA treatment is complete, the guitar is more responsive to the player’s style and resonates more easily with measurably increased
sustain. The time needed to be played in is also reduced.
