The Yamaha Corporation doesn’t believe in limiting itself to one product line. Consequently, over the years they’ve dabbled in such varied experiments as furniture making and archery products. You might have heard of their motorcycles. But although they like to try new ventures, Yamaha knows their strengths. Therefore, since the 1880’s they have been successfully making fine quality musical instruments. Yamaha makes guitars suitable from any player, from the beginner to the seasoned professional. Innumerable guitarists learned to play on the company’s budget-friendly FG series in the seventies and eighties, and some of the world’s finest players have created masterpieces on Yamaha’s upscale L-series.
Yamaha guitars debuted in 1942, and since then they have been surprising and delighting users with their remarkable sound, perfect playability and gorgeous looks. Legacy craftsmanship combined with the latest innovations in wood technologies and construction finish make for a rich, true sound, and the fine hand-selected tone woods make any Yamaha guitar an instrument to be proud of.
The guitars boast a solid feel, not heavy but with a pleasant sense of heft. Well-balanced with clear and complex acoustic tones, Yamaha guitars will please users with their wide range. Guitarists who play Yamaha instruments include Mark Oakley, Steve Wilkinson, Take 6, Michael Herring, David Lvita, Clayton Gibb, Peter Hayes, Amy Abdou, and Chris Henderson.
