Yamaha FJX720SC Medium Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Natural (FJX-720SC)
Featuring a solid Sitka Spruce top and Nato back & sides, the FJX720SC combines Yamaha’s legendary build-quality and setup with the larger LJ body for a full, powerful tone with strong lows and smooth highs. For amplified performance, the FJX720SC relies on Yamaha’s tried and tested piezo pickup linked to the latest System 55T preamp featuring master volume, 3-band EQ with sweepable midrange and onboard chromatic tuner.
A.R.T. Pickup System
A.R.T. (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) technology
- Newly developed contact pickup
Unique multilayer structure achieves optimum dynamic balance.
Yamaha acoustic-electric guitars have consistently used piezoelectric pickups to repdoduce the pure sounds of the acoustic guitar. But piezoelectric pickups tended to overreact to changes in attack, which in turn caused distortion. To achive ideal playability, we had to improve the way that these dynamics were controlled. To provide a solution to this issue, the new pickup was designed with a multilayer structure consisting of six layers of different materials. This dampens excessive vibration from the topboard while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance. Also, because the pickup is fi tted directly beneath the topboard, it functions as a transducer attached to the body.
- 3-way configuration
In addition to two main pickups mounted under the saddle, this system has one each on the bass and treble sides to capture the vibrations of the entire length of the strings and body, as well as the sound's bass and treble components. The pickups are laid out in such a way as to achieve clear reproduction even during high-position soloing.
Controls for the under bridge mounted piezo pickup are mounted on the instrument's side for optimum access. The battery compartment is also located on the side, close to the neck, to provide easy replacement.
Preamp System (System 55T)
This is a tuner-equipped version of System55. The chromatic tuner is accurate, easy to use and easy to view. You can use the tuning mode by pressing a single button even if you have no cable connected. Turning the tuner on or off will not affect the output in any way. The tuner also comes with a one-minute auto-off timer to save battery power.
Non-scallop, X-type bracing design. Delivers deep lows full of presence that are unique to the Yamaha sound, and a clear upper end. Response is clear and tight.
Real mother-of-pearl inlay on the headstock is standard on all models and adds a touch of class not found in this price range.
Yamaha's original "L" block design offers faster transfer of string vibration to the guitar's body for greater depth and tone while enhancing stability around the neck joint.
The large bridge offers greater transfer of string vibration to the body producing a tight and clear mid-range with full, balanced tone. Smooth lines and edges keep the playing surface unencumbered.
