PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE

We present to you another gorgeous Japanese-made Yamaha acoustic guitar! This small-bodied Concert FS5 is a beautiful instrument with all solid woods, vintage aesthetics and contemporary Japanese build quality and innovation. This is a great option for travel, those with smaller physical frames, or anyone looking for a more focused acoustic tone.

Aside from the tried-and-true tonewood combination of a mahogany back, sides, neck and a Sitka spruce top, the awesome A.R.E. treatment is essentially a torrefaction ("roasting") of the top to accelerate the "aging" of the wood over time. This process makes it much more resonant and lively. The old adage that acoustics just sound better and better over time isn't just a myth, it's factually proven - and this method has got it down to a science.

Combine that with high-end Yamaha hardware choices and an extremely comfortable satin-finished neck, and you have a bona-fide "desert island" acoustic in your hands at an amazing price. Highly recommend checking one out!
