A statuesque guitar, wonderfully dressed in vintage sunburst with abalone perfling all around the body. The DY1TS and WY1TS are 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.
Our choice of partner when it comes to electronics is B-BAND®. We love their patented Emfit™ film pick-ups, which reproduce the natural sound of the guitar very closely. The XOM system in the SYS650 is a dual pick up system which allows you to blend between the under saddle Emfit™ film pick-up and the soundboard transducer pick up. So if you need a focused sound for lead work or more air from the body for big open chords, the SYS650 delivers.
The DYM70 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.
Like all Yairi Masterworks this guitar is made from premium tone wood that has been seasoned naturally for 5 to 15 years in the perfect climate of Kani.
Kani is in the prefecture of Gifu in the hills north of Nagoya. This wood preparation and environment for building guitars is very important to the structural integrity of the instrument and will help to ensure decades of stability and performance from your Yairi.
