The Yamaha CSF-TA TransAcoustic in Vintage Natural combines Yamaha’s revolutionary TransAcoustic system with the company’s equally groundbreaking CSF parlour acoustic guitar body. Designed from the ground up to combine the dimensions of a travel guitar with the volume found in a bigger bodied instrument, the CSF is truly impressive. Not only does it sound big, its sound quality is also amazing, with ringing, complex single notes and full-sounding chords. As for the TransAcoustic system, there aren’t many true “wow” moments left to be had in the acoustic guitar world, but this has proved to be one of them - natural-sounding reverb and chorus without plugging into an amp? It’s a reality!

Supplied with a durable hard bag, the CSF-TA’s compact size and shorter scale length make it ideal both for the travelling musician and for those with smaller hands. Try it out today in our Glasgow store, or buy online for fast delivery to the UK and Europe. Every guitar we sell if fully set-up by our in-store guitar luthier, ensuring you receive the best possible example.

Yamaha CSF-TA TransAcoustic Parlour in Vintage Natural with hard bag Features:

Actuator: An actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back vibrates in response to the vibrations of the strings. The vibrations of the actuator are then conveyed to the body of the guitar, and to the air in and around the guitar body, generating authentic reverb and chorus sounds from inside the body.

Simple Controls: Three simple knobs let you adjust the degree of effect applied and the lineout volume level. Additionally, keeping the controls small minimises the area of the holes in the body material, reducing acoustic sound loss.

  • (A) Chorus Control
  • (B) Reverb Control (Room / Hall)
  • (C) TA Switch / Line Out Volume Control

* Pressing the TA Switch for more than 0.3 seconds activates the TA function.
* When a cable is connected to the line-out jack, the lineout volume can be adjusted by rotating the (C) knob.
* The reverb type switches from Room to Hall around the 12:00 position.

Designed to Provide Superb Acoustic Guitar Sound: The design of the CSF series utilises newly-designed scalloped bracing that delivers rich, full-bodied resonance. The use of a forward shifted construction maintains the strength of the body while maximising the vibration of the guitar’s top.

Newly Designed Battery Box: Battery box integrated into the end-pin jack. This requires fewer holes in the body, thus reducing acoustic sound loss. Connect the cable from the jack to a PA or amp to use as an acoustic electric guitar.

Functional, Durable Hard Bag: All CSF guitars come with a functional, durable hard bag you can sling over your shoulder for easy transport.
