Spotlight on STORIA

These guitars sound as great as they look.

Looking over the shoulder of a guitar player, a closeup of their hand fingering the strings on the neck. You can see that they are sitting in a living room, wearing casual clothes.STORIA is a new series of stylish and great-sounding Yamaha acoustic-electric guitars designed for beginners. Their smaller body and shorter length, combined with a low string height and a narrow neck with rounded edges, make these instruments not only comfortable to hold but easy to pick up and play whenever inspiration strikes.

In addition to their appealing finishes, tasteful inlay work and champagne gold tuners, STORIA guitars feature superb workmanship, solid tops, brass bridge pins and Yamaha passive undersaddle pickups, which provide a warm and natural-sounding acoustic tone when the guitars are amplified. All three STORIA models have FS (Concert) body shapes with mahogany backs and sides, nato necks with walnut fingerboards, urea nuts and saddles, and 25″ scale lengths. Complementary inside colors and sound hole inlays complete the designs.

Three acoustic guitars.

STORIA I, STORIA II and STORIA III.

STORIA I has a solid Sitka spruce top with an off-white semi-gloss finish and ivory body binding. The mahogany back and sides have a natural finish, the inside is light blue, and the rosette is inlaid with ivory and mahogany. STORIA I has a clear yet rich sound.

STORIA II has a solid mahogany top with a natural semi-gloss finish and a 3/16″ (5mm) beveled edge. The mahogany back and sides have a natural finish, the inside is ultramarine, and the rosette is inlaid with ivory and abalone. STORIA II has a warm, well-balanced sound.

STORIA III has a solid mahogany top with a chocolate-brown gloss finish and black body binding. The mahogany back and sides have a chocolate-brown finish, the inside is wine red, and the rosette has ivory, red wine, and black inlays. STORIA III also has a warm and well-balanced tonality.
