We’ve been finding some of the best acoustic guitars under $1500 are implementing electronics like the SRT2 system which is featured on the Yamaha A5R ARE acoustic electric guitar.  The tonal quality that carries through make this an ideal guitar for professional musicians as the value is something found in a guitar that could cost twice as much, so we would like to discuss it amongst best guitars.

Yamaha A5R ARE Acoustic Electric Guitar Features:

  • 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar 
  • Solid Sitka Spruce Top
  • SRT2 Electronics 
  • Solid Rosewood Back and Sides
The Dreadnought body incorporates a Solid Sitka Spruce Top with Solid Rosewood Back and sides which looks and sounds as pro as it gets.

If you are not a professional guitarist, don’t let its pro style keep you from splurging on this beautiful guitar.  It is so easy to play and enjoyable to hear that it will make any player yearn to practice and enjoy the journey.
