This beauty is on our online store! 

We are really excited to offer a limited edition Yamaha Koa Acoustic Guitar!

Crafted from all solid Hawaiian koa, the limited edition A4KII features the A-Series cutaway dreadnought body, double-line abalone inlays and unique black tuning machine keys together with specially recorded mic models on the SRT preamp for plugged-in tone that matches the acoustic sound.

Characteristic appearance and sound offered by selected all solid Hawaiian koa
The A4KII features an all-solid koa top, back and sides, imparting a dark and exotic look and feel to the guitar. A dense, tropical hardwood, solid koa combines an incredible midrange focus and top-end brightness, along with great midrange overtones, warmth and sweetness to the voice.

Scalloped bracing with using cutting edge acoustic analysis technology
Cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by Yamaha led to the development of this model's new scalloped bracing pattern for the top board and shorter bracing than normal for the back board. The result is overall increases across the lower range, richer harmonic overtones in the midrange, with louder and stronger low-mid ranges.

SRT2 Pickup System tuned specifically for koa wood
The SRT2 pickup system, also developed by Yamaha, perfectly suits the guitars for versatile acoustic-electric performance. The clear sound of the piezo pickups is ideal for cutting through a dense mix, and for lush detailed resonance, the pickup system also provides studio-grade microphone emulations culled from a select handful of vintage studio condenser and ribbon mics. The guitar’s tone can be customized by mixing piezo and mic tones to find the optimal sound for any playing style.

All solid-Hawaiian koa top, back, and sides provides incredible midrange focus and top-end brightness, along with great midrange overtones

Double-line abalone inlays and unique black tuning machine keys

Latest A-Series scalloped bracing for increased volume and low-end response

SRT (Studio Response Technology) electronics recreates the sound and spatial dimension of a vintage microphone used in a professional studio

SRT2 System 71 Preamp controls let you fine-tune your sound with a simple 4 knob user interface

Hard reinforced bag included
