Yamaha FG-TA TransAcoustic Guitar
Yamaha FG-TA TransAcoustic guitars transport you to new creative spaces with immersive reverb and lush chorus effects, without needing an amp or other external gear. For the singer/songwriter in you, the FG-TA features a combination of solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and scalloped bracing to create warmth, resonance and a bold sound.
- Traditional western body
- Solid spruce top
- Mahogany back & sides
- Amazing sounding reverb/chorus built-into the guitar with no need for external amplification or effects
- New scalloped bracing for louder, richer acoustic sound
An actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back vibrates in response to the vibrations of the strings. The vibrations of the actuator are then conveyed to the body of the guitar, and to the air in and around the guitar body, generating authentic reverb and chorus sounds from inside the body.
Three simple knobs let you adjust the degree of effect applied and the lineout volume level. Additionally, keeping the controls small minimizes the area of the holes in the body material, reducing acoustic sound loss.
(A) Chorus Control
(B) Reverb Control (Room / Hall)
(C) TA Switch / Line Out Volume Control
- Pressing the TA Switch for more than 0.3 seconds activates the TA function.
- When a cable is connected to the line-out jack, the lineout volume can be adjusted by rotating the (C) knob.
- The reverb type switches from Room to Hall around the 12:00 position.
Newly Designed Battery Box
Battery box integrated into the end-pin jack. This requires fewer holes in the body, thus reducing acoustic sound loss. Connect the cable from the jack to a PA or amp to use as an acoustic electric guitar.
