15 years after Yamaha ended its initial run of CSF parlor acoustics we have two models in the CSF1 and CSF3.

The new CSF1 and CSF3 are both parlor acoustic guitars offer significant upgrades over their predecessors.

The CSF1 has a solid Sitka spruce top with layered mahogany back and sides, nato neck, blackwood fingerboard and bridge, abalone rosette and the original Yamaha SRT Zero Impact passive pickup system. The premium CSF3 has the same features of the CSF1 but adds a solid mahogany back and sides and mahogany body binding. Both models come in a natural gloss finish.

The 20-fret fingerboard has a scale length of 600mm (23.7″), and each model comes with a hard bag.

The CSF1 ($645) and CSF3 ($880) are available now.
