Introducing the New Generation of Yamaha Red Label Guitars
A guitar that sounds and feels like you’ve been playing it for years — right from the very first note.
Ready to check out our new FG Red Label steel-string folk guitars? Inspired by the iconic Yamaha “red label” guitars of the 1960s — the instruments that were onstage at the original Woodstock — they blend modern inspiration with a timeless design for an authentic vintage aesthetic.
There are lots of features that make these guitars special: A solid mahogany back and sides. A premium solid Sitka spruce top treated with our proprietary Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) process for genuine aged-wood tone and sustain. A new scalloped-bracing design for warm tonality along with plenty of volume. And a groundbreaking Atmosfeel™ three-way pickup system with built-in microphone that delivers a natural acoustic sound when amplified. The end result? A guitar that sounds and feels like you’ve been playing it for years — right from the very first note.
The music for this video was composed and produced by Joshua Ray Gooch and Cory Churko. All of the guitar tracks were recorded with the FG Red Label.
