A Premium Concert Acoustic from Yamaha’s Retooled Red Label Series

With its sleek and comfortable Concert body style, the Yamaha Red Label FS5 artfully balances warmth and clarity, comfort and output. Don’t let its size or price deceive you — the FS5 delivers a playing experience that holds its own against some industry heavyweights. Its body is built from a choice cocktail of solid tonewoods — dynamic Sitka spruce on warm, rich mahogany — with a top that has been visually and tonally optimized using Yamaha’s A.R.E wood torrefaction process and Modified Scalloped bracing. Together, these yield a developed and mature tone that is sure to put a smile on any seasoned fingerstylist or flatpicker’s face. A “V” headstock, an eye-catching semi-gloss finish, a deluxe wood pickguard, and a tone-enhancing bone nut and saddle round out this price-defying package. Step into a new era of Yamaha’s celebrated FS guitars — experience for yourself the Red Label FS5 acoustic guitar.

Captures the essence of Yamaha’s iconic Red Label guitars

Inspired by Yamaha’s iconic Nippon Gakki Red Label guitars from the 1960s, FS Red Label instruments call to mind the look and feel of the company’s very first steel-string acoustic guitars. These sought-after instruments are cherished for their one-of-a-kind sound and high-end Japanese craftsmanship. Teeming with beautiful vintage aesthetics, the FS Red Label series enables you to experience the very essence of these legendary instruments, thanks to Yamaha’s state-of-the-art wood conditioning techniques and true-to-life vintage sound. All FS Red Label guitars feature classic V-shaped headstocks with Yamaha’s tuning fork logos, solid tonewoods, updated scalloped bracing, and eye-catching semi-gloss finishes.

Tradition Meets Innovation

Innovative construction yields a better guitar

The great tone and smooth playability of the Red Label FS5 is enhanced by Yamaha’s A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) wood torrefaction, which gives your guitar a broken-in and aged tone. By controlling the atmospheric pressure, temperature, and humidity, the molecular properties of the wood are manipulated to mirror those of a guitar that has been played for years. Each FS Red Label series guitar also features a modified and updated scalloped bracing pattern that exhibits a louder, more balanced tone.

Solid spruce top for great tone

The choice of top wood can powerfully affect the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the Red Label FS5, Yamaha chose a premium solid Sitka spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, the top has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection — and its tone is only made better by Yamaha’s A.R.E. wood torrefaction process. The guitar’s solid mahogany back and sides provide exceptional bass and powerful punch, and they simply look great.
