The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
The CG-TA TransAcoustic nylon string is among the newest additions to the family of Yamaha hybrid guitars. 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 a solid Engelmann Spruce top and a body of Ovangkol, an attractive wood 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.
The newly designed battery box integrated into the end-pin jack requires fewer holes in the body. This reduces acoustic sound loss. Connect the cable form the jack to a PA or amp to use as an acoustic electric guitar.
