Why choose the Yamaha JR2 Guitar?

The JR2 is a compact acoustic guitar modeled after our long selling FG series. Its compact size and authentic acoustic tone make the JR2 an excellent take-along, play-anywhere guitar. It’s great for campfire sing alongs, road trips or anywhere you want to be able to play, and it comes with a durable case. A Mahogany Ultra Thin Finish (UTF) on the back and sides offer a beautiful look. This popular choice boasts the beautiful sound quality and outstanding design for which Yamaha is famous! Put this all together and you have one of the world’s best-selling guitars.
