A Premium Concert Acoustic-electric from Yamaha’s Retooled Red Label Series
The original Yamaha FS concert shape is a good fit for players who prefer a smaller body and slightly brighter sound to complement strumming and fingerpicking with 1960s aesthetics and modern craftsmanship culminating over 50 years of Yamaha guitar development.
With its sleek and comfortable Concert body style, the Yamaha Red Label FSX5 artfully balances warmth and clarity, comfort and output. Don’t let its size or price deceive you — the FSX5 delivers a playing experience that holds its own against some industry heavyweights. Its body is built from a choice cocktail of solid tonewoods — dynamic Sitka spruce on warm, rich mahogany — with a top that has been visually and tonally optimized using Yamaha’s A.R.E aging process and Modified Scalloped bracing. Together, these yield a developed and mature tone that is sure to put a smile on any seasoned fingerstylist or flatpicker’s face. The FSX5 is ready to rock the stage or practice space, with Atmosfeel electronics for a stellar plugged-in sound. A “V” headstock, an eye-catching semi-gloss finish, a deluxe wood pickguard, and a tone-enhancing bone nut and saddle round out this price-defying package.
