Yamaoka built the amazing new model "NY-5" You don't see the luxury in it like you see that's made from overseas countries, but Yamaoka Architop Guitars have the real beauty of simplicity. You almost feel the same way when you see the methods of Japanese traditional architecture. Every single points Yamaoka creates are all elaborated. We can say Yamaoka Archtop Guitars are real "Made in Japan" guitar. Yamaoka's original floating pickups make the instrument more "acoustical." The weakest point of floating pickup is howling issue, however Yamaoka Archtop guitar's original body construction called "KING POST CONSTRUCTION" controls this problem. Good response for fast phrasing, and clear low sound. NY-5 has the same shape of existing model "NY-3," the differences are floating pickup specification, pickguard. Also NY-5 has Maple Neck,1piece Maple sides. Yamaoka builds his instruments all by himself. You will see the great craftsmanship in his instruments. He is a true luthier.
