Yamaha Red Label FGX3 Concert Acoustic-Electric Tone
Featuring Yamaha's Atmosfeel™ pickup and preamp system, the guitar uses a three-way sensor setup with a piezo sensor to capture sound where the strings meet the bridge, an internal microphone to gather the resonance inside the guitar body and a sheet sensor to pick up the vibrations of the topboard. All of this works to create an even more organic sound and response when playing plugged in. Acoustically, the guitar boasts a rich and balanced sound with no overbearing frequencies. It's really useful for a variety of playing styles.
Why We Like It
We dig the retro-aesthetic of the FG Red Label acoustic. Yamaha pays homage to the original Yamaha FG Red Label acoustic guitars of the 1960s, the company’s very first steel-string guitars, which became widely known for their high-end Japanese craftsmanship. These qualities traverse the new FG Red Label Series, with a classic tone to match.
