Yamaha TransAcoustic LSTA VT
Yamaha LS-TA TransAcoustic guitars transport you to new, creative spaces with immersive reverb and lush chorus effects without needing an amp or other external gear. Perfect for fingerstyle players, the concert body LS-TA has an A.R.E.-treated, solid Engelmann spruce top with rosewood back and sides. It delivers the richness of aged wood while maintaining excellent tone and balance.
- Concert Size Body
- Solid Engelmann Spruce Top with A.R.E. Treatment
- Solid Rosewood Back and Sides
- Designed to Provide Superb Acoustic Guitar Sound
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 amount of effects and the line out volume level. Keeping the controls small minimizes the area of the holes in the body material, which reduces acoustic sound loss.
(A) Chorus Control
(B) Reverb Control (Room/Hall)
(C) TA Switch/Line Out Volume Control
* Pressing the TA Switch for longer than 0.3 seconds activates the TA function.
* When a cable is connected to the line out jack, the line out volume can be adjusted by rotating knob (C).
* The reverb type switches from Room to Hall around the 12:00 position.
Superb Acoustic Guitar Sound
The body is an all-solid guitar based on the L Series.
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L Series' characteristic bright tone while enhancing the low end.
Treating the tops with the exclusive, Yamaha A.R.E. process gives the instrument a rich, vintage-quality tone, which makes it sound as though it's been played for years, from the very first moment you pick it up.
The fact that this guitar has been designed with an insistence on sound quality is what allows it to produce effected sounds that feel pure and natural.
Straighter neck taper and hand-rolled fingerboard edges result in an instrument that can be played for hours without any stress.
The 5-ply neck design featured in all TransAcoustic Guitars is constructed of rosewood and mahogany plies with a double-action adjustable rod, creating a strong, stable neck that resists warping.
The battery box is integrated into the end-pin jack, which 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.
