Yamaha FS5 Red Label Concert Body All Solid Acoust

Product Information

Made by Yamaha at its Custom Shop in Hammamatsu, Japan, the FS5 Red Label is a concert acoustic guitar that features an A.R.E. treated solid Sitka spruce top and scalloped top bracing to help deliver a rich midrange and low-frequency response. Yamaha has paired the FS5 with a solid mahogany for a boost of warmth, more woody tone and to bolster the midrange. The FS5 Red Label's bone nut and saddle provide a more efficient transfer of energy from the strings to the neck and body.

In defining the sound of FG Red Label guitars, Yamaha's intention was to offer a warm tone that would be ideal for modern folk music and singer/songwriters. With careful measurement and experimentation, their luthiers made several refinements to the bracing that would enhance low-frequency response without compromising durability. These changes are optimized for the natural characteristics of the tonewoods, and for each body silhouette.
