Yamaha FS-TA TransAcoustic Electro Acoustic Ruby Red
The back and sides of this sleek-looking instrument are constructed of Mahogany, providing a deep and musical bellow that ensures excellent projection, even when unplugged. A solid Spruce top brings in some top-end clarity, giving chords or fingerpicked runs all of the sparkly definition they need to cut through in a mix.
The Nato neck has a substantial feel that offers amazing comfort for the left hand, adorned with a silky smooth Rosewood fingerboard that feels great on the fingers. The vintage tint finish gives this instrument all of the classy elegance you'd ever want, with the bound body and neck really finishing off the stunning look.
The TransAcoustic FS-TA features a high-spec System 70 preamp, joined with an SRT Piezo pickup. These go above and beyond your typical electro acoustic electronics, as the piezo pickup can produce chorus and reverb effects by transmitting the string vibrations into an actuator on the guitar's back panel. This is then tranferred through the guitar body and the air around it, creating genuine reverb and chorus effects inside the guitar and amplifying it naturally.
The amount of these effects can be controlled using two knobs, of which have been ergonomically designed into the body. This is so that there are less holes drilled into the wood, meaning that the instrument can retain more resonance and volume. The third control can engage the actuator or bypass it entirely, if you prefer an unaffected sound. When plugged into an amplifier, this control serves as a volume control instead.
