Electric Acoustic Guitar
Thank you for choosing a Yamaha electric-acoustic guitar.
In order to make the most of the advanced features and perfor-
mance provided by your guitar, please read this manual care-
fully before using the instrument.
l Before connecting the guitar to the amplifier, refer to the "Battery
Replacement" section and install the batteries.
l Always set the guitar's VOLUME control and the volume control
on the amplifier to their minimum levels when connecting or dis-
connecting the cable.
l The built-in preamplifier is automatically turned ON when a guitar
cable is connected to the output jack. When not using the instru-
ment, or when playing it without amplification, be sure to remove
the guitar cable from the output jack so that the preamplifier pow-

an extended period of time, or when battery power is depleted,
we recommend that the batteries be removed in order to avoid
power consumption or leakage.
