Great sound, easy to play and beautiful
tnt220, 17.03.2021
I use this guitar at home, but it could easily be used on stage as well.

The guitar comes in a solid case and is beautifully made. The build quality is superb and even when looking inside. The materials used are first class.
The guitar is very light and plays easily with low action and a big warm rich sound. The neck has a great feel helps with the playability. When kept at constant humidity the guitar stays in tune for a long time.

When plugged in the pickup system lets you adjust the sound even more but wthout diminishing the quality. I do mostly use it unplugged myself though.
This guitar will last me many many years.

Pros:
Quality
Sound
Feel
Playability

Cons:
None so far

I would buy this again, no question about it

Exceptionnel !
Pierre7340, 30.04.2019
Guitariste amateur depuis plus de 20 ans. Je suis bluffé par la qualité de cette guitare au look très sobre et passe-partout, à l'aise aussi bien en acoustique que branchée (sur ordi pour moi). Sustain impressionnant, basses très présentes, aigus percutants, le tout parfaitement équilibrée, action basse, belle projection ... manche ultra confortable, vraiment polyvalente... Quoi dire de plus ? Je l'utilise depuis quelques semaines et elle m'enchante aussi bien en strumming qu'en picking, j'ai gardé les cordes elixir d'origine pour l'instant. Pour les mêmes caractéristiques, il faut débourser le double avec les "grandes" marques... Enfin, c'est du tout massif, donc que du bonheur en perspective !

Alles was man braucht
Jay-M, 14.06.2019
Nachdem ich im Vorfeld zwei LL 16 wegen nicht optimaler Saitenlage zurückschicken musste (Saiten schnarrten beim Strumming mit Pick), scheint es, dass ich mit der Yamaha A5R das Richtige für mich gefunden habe.
Die Gitarre ist top verarbeitet und kommt in einem schönen Gitarrenkoffer. Besonders gefällt mir an ihr, dass sie im Design nicht zu dick aufträgt, sondern in ihrem Erscheinungsbild schlicht und dennoch solide bleibt.
Die Einstellung ab Werk lässt wenig zu wünschen übrig. Dank dem Halsprofil und der Saitenlage spielt sie sich sehr leicht und fast wie von selbst. Die Massivhölzer und das Acoustic Resonance Enhancement bieten einen hellen, durchsetzungsstarken und dennoch vollen Klang.
An einen Verstärker angeschlossen, setzt sich der positive Eindruck fort. Der Piezo-Pickup leistet tolle Arbeit. Auch bei dem Preamp konzentrierte man sich bei Yamaha auf das Wesentliche und machte den Job dafür wirklich gut. Die wenigen Einstellmöglichkeiten (Volume, Trubel, Bass, Blend) lassen den Piezo wie ein echtes Mikrofon klingen und produzieren einen schönen, warmen Sound.
Alles in allem eine tolle Gitarre, die bei diesem Preis- Leistungsverhältnis ihresgleichen sucht.
