Guitars & Basses
Guitars, basses and amplifiers, born in Japan since 1966

2020 marks two related anniversaries for Yamaha Guitars: the 30th anniversary of Yamaha Guitar Development - our Los Angeles custom shop - and the 30th anniversary of the Attitude series.

Every element of how we design and craft our guitars is built around our mission to make instruments that inspire. Our guitars are made differently ‒ theyʼre made in Yamaha.
