The Yamaha TransAcoustic FS-TA - Taking You Places Other Guitars Cannot!

Unread post by Saul » Mon Oct 22, 2018 6:28 pm

Just received a Yamaha FS-TA acoustic guitar from those lovely people up at Yamaha HQ in Milton Keynes and first impressions are that I am very impressed indeed!

I have played the "normal" FS series but this is my first go on the TransAcoustic version of this guitar and although we all pretty much know what the tech inside these guitars does by now it is not until you actually get "hands-on" that the real magic begins!

The standard FS is a lovely guitar to play with it's solid spruce top, layered mahogany back & sides, nato neck and rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The model I have here looks great too in a very refined brown sunburst finish but It is also available in natural finish which looks equally as nice.

So the standard FS is a good guitar but, add in the wonder of Yamaha's TransAcoustic tech and it becomes not just a good guitar but a very special guitar. Really you have to play it to understand but having the ability to transform your playing environment from what was your living room to a concert hall or cathedral at the press of a button without actually being plugged into anything is one of those moments of revelation that is hard to forget. I can tell you, this IS a very effective and addictive bit of tech!

We will be doing a full review and video over the coming days but if you are looking for a new acoustic guitar at the moment do yourself a favour and check out the FS and FG TransAcoustic's, you will be very glad you did!
