“CSF is compact without compromise,” said Dave Miner, product marketing manager, Yamaha Guitar Group. “We reintroduced the series in 2018 because of interest in parlor-sized guitars and expanded the lineup last year with a TransAcoustic model. We hope these two new CSF1M finishes will help even more players to find a perfect fit for the sound and style they want, and for wherever they play.”
Special forward-shifted scalloped bracing enhances the resonance of the Yamaha CSF1M guitar’s solid Sitka spruce top, increasing bass response, while its mahogany back and sides impart a natural warmth and richness. Despite its compact size and shorter length, which some players find more comfortable to play than the larger instruments, the CSF1M has a surprisingly big and rich acoustic sound, with an undersaddle SRT piezo pickup for plugging in onstage or in the studio.
Combining the portability of a travel guitar with the focused tonal characteristics of a parlor guitar, the CSF1M is an ideal choice for both the road and the destination.
The Yamaha CSF1M models in Crimson Red Burst and Translucent Black (MSRP: $639.00) are now shipping.
