Top Wood: Solid AA Western Red Cedar

Product Description

A statuesque guitar, the Yairi WY1TS is wonderfully dressed in vintage sunburst with abalone perfling all around the body. The WY1TS is so beautiful you actually may find it hard to take them on stage, but please do. This is a great sounding instrument both on and off stage and of course harnesses Yairi’s historic build quality, so gig away; these are super durable, unfailing instruments.

The WY1TS is fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs Element pick up and StagePro EQ for optimal live performance. The StagePro Element is a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers easy battery access and a full chromatic tuner and three band EQ. Unlike common undersaddle pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element Pickup was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play, reproducing the natural sound of the guitar very closely.

The WY1TS has an extended dovetail neck construction that maximizes the energy transfer between the neck and body. It also allows for a wider range of rod adjustment and decreases the risk of any neck/body irregularities.

Further innovation comes with the Direct Coupled Bridge. This system really shows off the craftsmanship of which these guitars are made. The DC Bridge means the pins actually go into the top of the guitar, taking the vibration to the heart of the soundboard and at the same time hugely increasing the break angle from the saddle to the top. This increased down pressure raises string tension, giving the guitar a very responsive feel and adding quality to its volume and sustain.

Like all Yairi Masterworks this guitar is made from premium tone wood that has been seasoned naturally for 5 to 15 years in the perfect climate of Kani. Kani is in the prefecture of Gifu in the hills north of Nagoya. This wood preparation and environment for building guitars is very important to the structural integrity of the instrument and will help to ensure decades of stability and performance from your Yairi.

This guitar is brand new, in factory fresh condition, and does not have any dings, dents, or play wear. There is some very slight discoloration in the burst (gray) below the clearcoat on the lower bout, shown in a closeup photo. This guitar will ship with the original Alvarez hardshell case and in the factory packaging. DuBaldo Music Center case candy included!
