AC5R is a beast
skarsson, 11.01.2021
I absolutely love this guitar. I've owned a lot of great acoustic guitars over the years and
this is definitely one of the best I've ever owned.
The only modification I did was lowering the action, I like it rather low, so
now it plays like a dream for me.

If this guitar had another name on it's headstock the price would most likely be double, even more

It's hard to believe that Yamaha is still this underrated after all these years.
Even their Chinese models are fantastic, I own 2 Chinese models from them, my brother and dad own a few and
they all play great and sound great.
In my honest opinion no one beats Yamaha when it comes to quality and price.

Pros:
- Plays phenomenal
- Sounds like it's been played for many years, big and open sounding
- Comfortable to play
- Electronics are great and easy to use, mic selection is easy to blend in usable sounds.

Cons:
Uhmmmmm.......

Great as expected!
Tomas_Czech Republic, 26.12.2020
This guitar is great in all aspects. Mainly it sounds perfect. I wanted to buy A5R but finally I decided to buy AC5R because it fits better to my finger playing style. I play guitar more then 35 years and I tried various guitar brands and types already. This one has great value for such money.

It?s got to be perfect...
Gunslinger, 18.03.2020
Eigentlich habe ich nichts anderes erwartet. Die AC5R kam in einem absolut passgenauem, stabilen Koffer und war perfekt eingestellt. Das ist jetzt meine 4. Yamaha Akustik-Gitarre und ich war immer super zufrieden. Ich spiele sie Live und zu Hause und manchmal wie eine E-Gitarre, also mit Saitenziehen auch in den hohen Lagen. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Herstellern funktioniert das immer, ohne zu schnarren oder zu klappern. Die Verarbeitung ist ebenso perfekt, da ist aber auch nicht die kleinste Unebenheit oder Ungenauigkeit zu sehen oder zu spüren. Soundmäßig geht sofort die Sonne auf, durch das ARE Verfahren hat man wirklich den Eindruck, das Instrument wäre schon jahrelang eingespielt. Ein warmer, kräftiger und sehr ausgewogener Klang ist genau das, was ich erwartet habe. Übrigens auch bei Abnahme über den Pickup, bzw. die Mikesamples, die man stufenlos überblenden kann. Selten habe ich eine Akustik-Gitarre gehört, die so natürlich über eine P.A. klang. Nicht zuletzt die Optik mit den Palisander Zargen und Boden und die dunkle Fichtendecke vollenden den Traum einer Gitarre.
Jedenfalls für mich. Mehr Gitarre braucht kein Mensch.

Un truc de ouf
s007, 20.10.2020
J'ai acheté cette guitare pour remplacer la yamaha ac3m que je possède actuellement donc j'ai pu faire une petite comparaison
Au début, je pensais que c'était la même vu les caractéristiques mais en vrai pas du tout, déjà le sillet ne fait pas la même longueur.
Donc en gros
Niveau jeux le manche bien trop meilleur, un plaisir vraiment un vrai plaisir
Niveau son je ne connais pas trop les grandes marques mais là, je suis bluffé. Je viens de découvrir le palissandre et je veux rester longtemps.
Pas encore tester les micros mais le résultat avec la ac3m que je trouvais déjà très bien alors pas des doutes avec celle-ci.
Résultat trop content de mon achat et je recommande à 100%
