SERVICE ELECTRIC ACOUSTIC GUITAR Owner’s Manual Thank you for purchasing the YAMAHA Electric Acoustic Guitar. Incorporating a piezo pickup matched with a condenser microphone, this instrument achieves a realistically natural sound never before attained. A newly developed pre-amp section is utilized, designed to maximize the microphone's characteristics. The guitar's control section is simple, easy to use, and designed to fit any playing style. In order to make the most of the advanced features and performance provided by your guitar, please read this manual carefully before using the instrument. NOMENCLATURE Pickups: • Bar Sensor (Piezo Pickup) BATTERY REPLACEMENT Be sure to replace the battery as soon as possible when the battery check indicator lights in order to avoid reduced sound quality. Control Section Battery Holder • Condenser microphone * Be sure to remove the battery if the instrument will not be used for an extended period of time in order to prevent possible damage due to battery leakage. q Press the catch on the battery holder in the direction indicated by the arrow in the illustration q in order to unlock it. w Slide out the battery case. Sound Hole Cover (Accessory) PRECAUTIONS Output Jack (with power switch function) The output jack is an EIAJ-standard 1/4" phone jack. Be sure to use an appropriate connection cable. The built-in preamplifier is automatically turned on when a plug is inserted into the output jack. When not using the instrument, or when playing it without amplification, be sure to remove the plug from the output jack so that the preamplifier power is turned off. Always set the VOL. control to “0” when plugging in or unplugging the connection cable. The battery check indicator (BAT.) will light briefly when a plug is inserted or removed from the output jack. This is normal and does not indicate a malfunction. e Remove the old battery from the battery case, and insert the new battery making sure that the (+) and (–) terminals of the battery are positioned as shown in the illustration e. Use only a DC9V, S-006P (6F22) or equivalent battery. r Slide the battery case back into the battery holder and press firmly so that the battery case locks into place. Using the Sound Hole Cover Feedback often occurs when controls are boosted on the electric acoustic guitar to match the volume of other instruments when playing in a band. Another source of feedback results from using the BLEND control to increase the output from the internal condenser mic. When the instrument is used under the conditions described above, the Sound Hole Cover should be inserted into the sound hole. With the Sound Hole Cover in place, feedback is effectively reduced. w q Battery case e DC9V S-006P (6F22) Model : Monaural 2 Way System : SYSTEM-40 Pickup : q Yamaha Custom Bar Sensor (Piezo type) Pickup by LR-Baggs w Condenser microphone Pre-amplifier Controls : Output jack : VOL.

ADJUSTING SADDLE HEIGHT (only for CPX) w y r t CUT BOOST By controlling the center frequency, more substance can be given to the tone. For strumming, flat or cut settings are better, for lead or fingering boosting is recommended. * The A.M.F. control will have no effect when the MID knob is centered. String height can be adjusted at the bridge with the two adjuster screws located on either side of the bridge. With the strings loosened, rotate the adjuster screws to adjust string height. A half turn will result in approximately a 0.4 mm adjustment. YAMAHA SCANDINAVIA A.B. • To raise the height of the strings → rotate the screw counter-clockwise (loosen the screw). • To lower the height of the strings → rotate the screw clockwise (tighten the screw). YAMAHA-HAZEN ELECTRONICA MUSICAL S.A. After adjustment of the string height is complete, tune the guitar. * When you lower string height, loosen the truss rod a little (convex or back-bowed). When you raise string height, tighten the adjusting rod a little (concave or up-bowed), fret buzz will stop. YAMAHA MUSICA ITALIA S.P.A.

With the control centered, a 50:50 mix is achieved. Fully rotating the knob to the Piezo side allows only Piezo tone output. Fully rotating to the Mic. Side results in a mix of 70% Mic and 30% Piezo. To obtain a natural sound, set the knob somewhere between its center and the mic side. For strumming in a band, set the knob somewhere between its center and the Piezo side. 6303 Blue Lagoon Drive, Suite 330 Miami Florida 33126 U.S.A.
