Amazing sounding reverb/chorus built-into the guitar with no need for external amplification or effects
New scalloped bracing for louder, richer acoustic sound
The singer or player in you will be glad to meet the FG-TA! Immerse yourself in a zone of creativity and lush chorus effects with this revolutionary TransAcoustic Guitar. You don’t need any amplification or external gear, just the guitar is enough. A combination of great features like a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, a scalloped bracing that result in a rich, bold sound.
The chorus sounds are due to an actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back which vibrates in response to string vibrations and generates an authentic reverberation. Three simple knobs let you adjust the degree of effect applied – Chorus Control, Reverb Control, TA Switch/Line Out V.
An actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back vibrates in response to the vibrations of the strings. The vibrations of the actuator are then conveyed to the body of the guitar, and to the air in and around the guitar body, generating authentic reverb and chorus sounds from inside the body.
Three simple knobs let you adjust the degree of effect applied and the lineout volume level. Additionally, keeping the controls small minimizes the area of the holes in the body material, reducing acoustic sound loss.
(A) Chorus Control
(B) Reverb Control (Room / Hall)
(C) TA Switch / Line Out Volume Control
* Pressing the TA Switch for more than 0.3 seconds activates the TA function.
* When a cable is connected to the line-out jack, the lineout volume can be adjusted by rotating the (C) knob.
* The reverb type switches from Room to Hall around the 12:00 position.
DESIGNED TO PROVIDE SUPERB ACOUSTIC GUITAR SOUND
The body is a solid top guitar based on the FG-series.
Louder and stronger sound in the low- to mid-ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division.
NEWLY DESIGNED BATTERY BOX
Battery box integrated into the end-pin jack. This requires fewer holes in the body, thus reducing acoustic sound loss. Connect the cable from the jack to a PA or amp to use as an acoustic electric guitar.
