Adding to cart… The item has been added

A statuesque guitar, wonderfully dressed in vintage sunburst with abalone purfling all around the body. The WY1 so beautiful you actually may find it hard to take them on stage, but please do. They are great sounding instruments both on and off stage and of course harness Yairi’s historic build quality, so gig away; they are super durable, unfailing instruments. The WY1 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.
