For sale at JAMS is a Yamaha TransAcoustic CG-TA Nylon String Acoustic Electric Guitar Natural. This guitar is in new condition and features a full factory warranty.
The CG-TA incorporates an actuator completely hidden inside the guitar, a unique Yamaha technology. When the instrument's strings are played, the actuator senses the vibrations, enhances them, and conveys them back to the guitar body and the air in and around the guitar to create authentic reverb and chorus effects from inside the body, with no need for external amplification or effects. This unique technology gives a player's music a spacious, concert-hall feel in any practice or performance space.
Incorporating the craftsmanship that has led Yamaha to become the best-selling nylon-string guitar maker in the United States, the CG-TA is based on the company's popular, mid-priced CG162 model. It features an Engelmann spruce top and a body of ovangkol, an attractive rosewood relative with excellent tonal properties. It incorporates the refined CG series bracing pattern, delivering superior response and resonance, and a thinner bridge plate that efficiently transfers string vibration across the guitar top. Three knobs on the guitar's side offer easy adjustment of the level of the TransAcoustic effects, and a SYSTEM70 TransAcoustic + SRT piezo pickup provides amplification, with a line-out volume level, an on/off control, and a redesigned battery box integrated with the guitar's endpin. The expert construction of the CG-TA produces a sound with smooth, rich, full tones that helps players enhance the depth of their music.
"Guitarists have been inspired by how our TransAcoustic technology broadens the range of their art; many of them have asked us to make it available in a nylon-string model as well," said Dennis Webster, product marketing manager, Yamaha Guitars. "With the CG-TA, players can enjoy the raw, natural and beautiful sound of the finest classical guitar, with innovative hybrid technology that encourages them to play longer, more often, and with even greater creativity."
Yamaha CG-TA TransAcoustic classical nylon-string guitars transport you to new creative spaces with immersive reverb and lush chorus effects, without needing an amp or other external gear. The only nylon-string TransAcoustic model, the CG-TA has ovangkol back and sides, yielding rich, focused tone and traditional elegance.
