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?
Guitars and baseball gloves are from different worlds, but the philosophies of the craftsmen who make them have many points in common.
Situated in Calabasas, Los Angeles, the Yamaha Artist Services (YASLA) facility is home to exciting development projects, unique custom builds and instrument modifications – and a great place for artists to drop in, start jamming and feel at home. YASLA is also the sacred space where Yamaha designer and luthier Pat Campolattano works his magic.
Each January, more than 100,000 artists, manufacturers, press and music fans flock to Anaheim, CA for The NAMM Show – the world’s largest trade event for the music products industry. It’s an exciting week to discover new products, experience cool performances and catch up with industry friends, but it can also be loud and hectic! With that in mind, we created the NAMM House Sessions.
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.
