Artist and engineer Cory Churko demonstrates the Yamaha CSF series of parlor-sized acoustic guitars, showcasing how their full, rich, and resonant sound offers an inspiring alternative to full-size dreadnought guitars.

Yamaha CSF series acoustic guitars combine the portability of a travel guitar with the focused tone of a parlor guitar. Despite the compact size, a new bracing design gives CSF guitars a surprisingly big acoustic sound. The rich tone works well for solo performance and fits easily in a mix on stage or in the studio–making CSF perfect for both the road and the destination. Solid-top and all-solid models are available, and all CSF guitars come with a deluxe gig bag.

A CSF-TA model is also available in our TransAcoustic series, featuring built-in reverb and chorus effects that don’t require an amplifier or pedals.
