The DY70CESHB features our FST2 bracing system, a forward shifted X-brace design which was the result of years of research and development. FST2 features center, scooped scalloping to the main braces and asymmetric scalloping to the two tone bars. In this way, we optimize the separation between each string and maximize balance and projection.
We take the same deliberate approach to our finishes, which range from shimmering natural satin to flawless sunbursts and shadowbursts. Careful preparation and years of experience allow our craftsmen to keep the finish thin, allowing our high-grade tops an excellent rate of vibration and movement.
This DY70CESHB Dreadnought is a powerful guitar with a rich voice. It’s very warm sounding with as much low end as any player would need, yet very balanced with round, full trebles. It has been carefully designed to take advantage of a dreadnought shape’s best properties. It features a solid AA grade sitka spruce top, a stunning shadow burst finish and is and fitted with the LR Baggs Stage Pro and Element pickup system.
The StagePro Element is a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers easy battery access and a full chromatic tuner with three band EQ. Unlike common undersaddle pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element Pickup was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play, reproducing the natural sound of the guitar very closely.
Further innovation comes with the Direct Coupled Bridge. This system displays the craftsmanship with which these guitars are made. The DC Bridge means the pins actually go into the top of the guitar, taking the vibration to the heart of the soundboard and simultaneously increasing the break angle from the saddle to the top. This increased down pressure raises string tension, giving the guitar a very responsive feel and adding quality to its volume and sustain. Other presentments include hand cut and assembled pearl and abalone inlays, ivoroid binding, ebony fingerboard, ebony bridge and ebony bridge pins.
Like all Yairi Standard Series, this guitar is made from premium tonewood that has been seasoned naturally for 5 to 15 years in the perfect climate of Kani.
