When the Yamaha A Series A3M was released in 2017, the company promised its latest guitar would deliver in the areas of comfort, power, and partnership. There is nothing particularly unique about the design, yet the A3M still looks elegant enough to blend into any collection.

The all-solid-wood design of the A3M features Yamaha’s Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) treatment, that pre-ages the wood to give it a stunning tone. The body cutaway makes it easier to access the higher frets and the neck is extremely comfortable.

The A3M is an electro-acoustic guitar, so it’s equipped with Yamaha’s Studio Response Technology (S.R.T.) system. The system seamlessly blends microphone and piezo pickup. The preamp is controlled with dials that have been placed on the side of the body, so the guitar maintains its naturally beautiful appearance.
