The Yamaha AC5M VN is an acoustic/electric guitar in a concert cutaway body, featuring a solid sitka spruce top and a mahogany body with natural gloss finish.

The single cutaway body was developed with a scalloped bracing for louder, richer acoustic sounds and allows players unfettered access to the higher frets. The African mahogany 3-ply neck features an ebony fingerboard with 20 frets and provides a comfort while playing.

For electronics, the Yamaha AC5M is outfitted with a System71 preamp and SRT piezo pickups to ensure solid plugged-in performance. The preamp offers several advanced features including a volume control, a 2-band EQ, auto feedback reduction, and a blend control plus mic selection. The Yamaha AC5M ships with a soundhole cover and a hex wrench.

SRT2 Electronics
From a piezo sound that cuts through a mix, to a warm, pure, acoustic sound that is recorded using vintage microphones in the recording studio, the SRT2 pickup allows you to reproduce a sound that you can really use on stage. With the SRT2, you can mix these two sounds to attain the exact balance you want to achieve, and a distinctive tone.

SRT Pickup
Yamaha's proprietary SRT pickup design uses individual elements for each string, to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular, ribbon-type piezo pickup.

High Comfort Neck
Extensive research with players, luthiers and guitar techs has given the A-Series the feel and playability that today's acoustic-electric players want. Whether switching from electric to acoustic onstage, recording a session with intricate open tunings, or practicing at home. These superb guitars feature a straighter neck taper for easier high-fret playing, and hand-rolled fingerboard edges to achieve a played-in feel.
