All three new models have FS (Concert) body shapes with mahogany backs and sides, nato necks with walnut fretboards, urea nuts and saddles, and 25" scale lengths.
Buena Park, CA (June 20, 2019) -- Yamaha today unveiled Storia, a series of three acoustic-electric guitars that are as fashionable as they are enjoyable to play. Designed with beginning and potential players in mind, their inviting body contours, slim necks, comfortable string height, and smooth fingerboard edges make them easy to pick up and play when inspiration arises, while at the same time their stylish color combinations make visual statements that enhance any living space.
Storia Series guitars are more than simply attractive instruments for beginners, however. In addition to their appealing finishes, tasteful inlay work, and champagne gold tuners, they feature superb workmanship, solid tops, brass bridge pins, and Yamaha SRT passive undersaddle pickups, which provide a warm and natural-sounding acoustic tone when the guitars are amplified. All three Storia models have FS (Concert) body shapes with mahogany backs and sides, nato necks with walnut fingerboards, urea nuts and saddles, and 25" scale lengths. Complementary inside colors and sound hole inlays complete the designs.
Storia I has a solid Sitka spruce top with an off-white semi-gloss finish and ivory body binding. The mahogany back and sides have a natural finish, the inside is light blue and the rosette is inlaid with ivory and mahogany. The guitar has a clear yet rich sound.
Storia II has a solid mahogany top with a natural semi-gloss finish and a 3/16" (5mm) beveled edge. The mahogany back and sides also have a natural finish, the inside is ultramarine and the rosette is inlaid with ivory and abalone. The mahogany top, sides, and back give the guitar a warm yet well-balanced sound.
Storia III has a solid mahogany top with a chocolate-brown gloss finish and black body binding. The mahogany back and sides also have a chocolate-brown finish, the inside is wine red and the rosette has ivory, red wine, and black inlays. The mahogany top, sides, and back give the guitar a warm yet well-balanced sound.
“There is a segment of today’s younger generation that craves an outlet for creativity and self-expression without aspiring to be the next guitar hero,” said Shannon McKee, product marketing manager, Yamaha Guitar Group. “STORIA answers that need with aesthetically-pleasing guitars that appeal to fashion-conscious, casual new players.”
All Storia guitars include a one-month subscription to FourChords, a guitar-learning app for iOS and Android that offers chord charts, lyrics, backing tracks, tutorials, and a tuner.
Yamaha Storia acoustic guitars are now shipping. Pricing is $653.00 (MSRP).

Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
Origin Effects introduce the new M-EQ DRIVER mid booster & drive pedal. Based on a vintage Pultec studio EQ, this unique pedal offers a range of mid-focused tones, from a subtle mid boost to thick, resonant overdrive. Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
A choice of three mid-range frequencies ensures that you can boost just the right part of your guitar signal and, when pushed harder, can elicit a range of saturation from a classic “mid-hump” overdrive to fierce “cocked wah” distortion. Thanks to the Adaptive Circuitry, the high-end roll-off of the Cut control is reduced as the pedal cleans up. This allows for a smooth transition from warm overdrive to bright clean tones in response to playing dynamics or guitar volume knob changes.
Introducing... M-EQ DRIVER || Mid Booster & Drive
Built-in the UK to the highest standards, the M-EQ DRIVER continues the Origin Effects tradition of vintage, studio-inspired tones in modern guitar pedals. The Origin Effects M-EQ DRIVER is available now from Origin Effects dealers worldwide.
RRP: 259 GBP (Inc VAT) / 319 USD (Ex TAX)

The new finish, according to Lava Music, is “inspired by the beauty of the golden hour,” a shining time just before sunset and after sunrise when photographers covet to capture stunning pictures.
With bright and warm golden hues, the new finish adds a brilliant metallic glow to the surface of Lava ME 3, complementing its AirSonic 2 carbon fiber unibody which features L3 Preamp with FreeBoost 2.0, delivers industry-leading sounds by breakthrough acoustic technologies, and houses a multi-touch display powered by Lava-developed HILAVA system.
Speaking of the HILAVA system, Lava Music also added four new effects: Nebula, Desert Rose, Cassette, and Edge of Breakup. As unique as their names sound, they are very much different from what we normally know about effects. Programmed into the HILAVA system, each of the four is powered by the company’s latest ArctanDrive algorithm and incorporates effects like Pitch Shift, Delay, and Reverb. And every one of those incorporated sub-effects comes with various parameters that players can adjust to design unique, overdriven sounds by just tapping on the multi-touch display. That said, those effects enable users to play with overdriven tone on an acoustic-electric guitar without even plugging in any external gear.
