Summary: Handmade in Japan with select tonewoods and premium build quality, Yamaha's AC5R Concert acoustic-electric guitar 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 guitar'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 AC5R 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.

Body: Solid Spruce top, Rosewood back/sides.

Neck: African Mahogany with an Ebony fingerboard, 25.6” scale length, 15.75” radius, 20 frets, 1.6875” nut width, pearl Snowflake inlays, straight taper profile.

Pickups/Hardware: Gotoh open gear tuning keys, System 71 SRT2 preamp with SRT piezo pickup, Tusq nut/saddle, Ebony bridge.

Cosmetics: This guitar is in excellent condition. The frets do show quite a bit of wear on the high E & B strings on the first seven frets (See Photos Please). The body has light surface scratches, and the pickguard has wear as well.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.
