Yamaha CSF3M Acoustic Electric Parlor Guitar, Tobacco Brown Sunburst

A Modern Parlor Guitar

The Yamaha CSF3M combines the portability of a travel guitar with the focused tonal characteristics of a parlor guitar—making it ideal for both the road and the destination. Special forward-shifted scalloped bracing enhances bass response while increasing the overall resonance of the solid Sitka spruce top, resulting a surprisingly big acoustic and amplified sound.


  • All models feature solid Sitka spruce mopboards, and mahogany back & sides.
  • Guitars come with a durable deluxe gig bag for easy transport.


For the Road and the Destination

CSF series guitars can be inspiring alternatives to full-size dreadnought guitars when recording, providing a full, rich, and resonant sound that can stand alone even on recordings where the acoustic guitar is prominently featured.

CSF guitars feature passive undersaddle pickups that utilize the same sensor found in Yamaha L-Series acoustic-electrics—enabling players to easily plug into an amplifier or PA system when performing live.

With their compact size and included deluxe gig bags, CSF series guitars make ideal travel companions.

Compact body, full-size sound

Despite their compact size, which some guitarists find more comfortable to play than larger instruments, CSF series guitars feature an all-new design that increases bass response and overall loudness, resulting in a surprisingly full, rich, and vibrant sound.

CSF series guitars utilize newly-designed scalloped bracing that delivers rich, full-bodied resonance comparable to that of a full-size guitar. Additionally, the use of a forward-shifted construction maintains the strength of the body while maximizing the resonance of the guitar top.

Passive Undersaddle Pickup

CSF3M guitars are equipped with undersaddle piezo pickups. With an individual sensor under each string, these pickups deliver superb sound when connecting to an amplifier or PA system. The passive design, inspired by Yamaha's L-Series acoustics, doesn’t require batteries. It’s a simple and convenient solution for the studio or stage.
