Guitars & Basses
Guitars, basses and amplifiers, born in Japan since 1966
Everything we do is about inspiring guitarists to create something amazing. Your music doesnʼt stand still, so why would we?
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.

In celebration of International Women's Day 2020 we celebrated by shining a spotlight on some awesome women who kill it in their field. These 5 Yamaha artists from different cities around the globe each gave us an insight into their lives as musicians: their inspirations, creative process, and what drives them as artists.
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.
