The Yamaha FGX3 Red Label Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar Natural Matte comes with a Softshell Case.

The Yamaha FGX3 Red Label Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar Natural Matte is an all-solid traditional western guitar with an Atmosfeel pickup system. Made by Yamaha at its Custom Shop in Hammamatsu, Japan, the A.R.E. treated solid Sitka spruce top and scalloped top-bracing deliver a rich midrange and low frequency response. The solid mahogany back and sides produce a warm and woody tone with a strong midrange. The Atmosfeel 3-way system mixes piezo, mic, and sheet sensor pickups for a full, natural sounding plugged-in sound.

Solid Sitka Spruce Top

Commonly sourced from Canada and Alaska, solid Sitka spruce offers a rich midrange and low-frequency response. The sound is tight and focused, working particularly well for chordal strumming or rhythmic fingerstyle performance.

Solid Mahogany Back and Sides

Mahogany has a slower transient response than many other tonewoods, contributing to a warm and woody tone with strong midrange.

Scalloped Bracing

With careful measurement and experimentation, Yamaha made several refinements, including scalloped 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.

Acoustic Resonance Enhancement

Yamaha's exclusive Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) uses heat, humidity, and atmospheric pressure to accelerate the aging of the wood. The A.R.E. process gives the instrument a rich, vintage-quality tone, producing a sound as if you've been playing it for years.

Atmosfeel 3-Way Pickup and Preamp System

The Atmosfeel 3-way pickup and preamp system uses a piezo sensor in the bridge to capture low frequencies, a microphone for low- and mid-range, and Yamaha's proprietary thin, synthetic sheet soundboard transducer for high frequencies. The result is a full, natural sound with simple controls that make it easy to get great plugged-in tone.

Simple and Intuitive Control for Each Performance Style

The Atmosfeel preamp control lets you blend the microphone sound into premixed pickup sound. The microphone sound particularly compliments solo performers and chordal players, while a lower blend may be preferred by fingerstyle players and guitarists who need to cut through a full band.

The Bass knob controls a peaking EQ. The center frequency raises when boosting and lowers when attenuating, so that low frequencies, which could be problematic on stage, can be removed but never added.
