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.
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.
