This latest 'folk' shaped model from the FS Series shows off the lovely sound you'd expect from this classic shape, but with a new scalloped bracing pattern which sets it apart from any previous models. This bracing allows for greater structural integrity, but with more volume and projection, plus an increase in the low end and a bigger tone overall, whilst ensuring the resonance will be more easily controlled, giving an even more user friendly experience than ever before.
Using the industry renowned SRT Piezo pickups, known for their superb tonal output and combining them with the SYSTEM 66 pre-amp that possesses a 3-band EQ, mid FQ, volume control and in-built tuner, the Yamaha’s electronics compliments the acoustic guitars natural properties, even when plugged into amplification.
Another cool feature is that the FS Series now runs using 2 x AA batteries (rather than the traditional 9v).
