3/4 Time: Yamaha Expands Small Body Acoustic Guitar Lineup With Solid Top JR2S


NASHVILLE (July 9, 2015) – Today Yamaha announced the introduction of the JR2S, a solid top version of the popular Yamaha ¾-size steel string folk guitar at the 2015 Summer NAMM Show in Nashville.

Joining the market-leading JR1 and JR2 small body guitars, the new JR2S is perfect for travel, for students as well as people who find conventional neck profiles to be challenging to play.

The JR2S features a beautiful fit and finish, Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, Mahogany back and sides and a Nato neck. The solid Spruce top on the instrument delivers superior tone and sound projection, which will improve as the guitar ages. A durable, attractive backpack-style soft case is also included that has a spacious compartment for lesson books and tablet computers.

"Compact acoustic guitars have grown in popularity by leaps and bounds, and this new solid top model is a winner, featuring great build-quality and an unmatched price point," said Armando Vega, marketing manager, guitars, Yamaha Corporation of America. "The JR2S is fun, easy to play. Once a player picks it up, it is hard to put down."

The JR2S (MSRP: $300) will ship in July 2015.
