accidentally swallow them.
If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the
leaked uid. If the battery uid should come in
contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash imme-
diately with water and consult a doctor. Battery uid
is corrosive and may possibly cause loss of sight or
chemical burns.
If you notice any abnormality
When one of the following problems occur, im-
mediately turn o the power switch and disconnect
the electric plug from the outlet. (If you are using
batteries, remove all batteries from the instrument.)
Then have the device inspected by Yamaha service
- The power cord or plug becomes frayed or dam-
- It emits unusual smells or smoke.
- There is a sudden loss of sound during use of the
Power supply/AC power adaptor
Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet
using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in
lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating
in the outlet.
When removing the electric plug from the instru-
ment or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and
not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.
Do not use if the power adaptor plug or cord is damaged.
Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the
instrument is not to be used for extended periods of
time, or during electrical storms.
Do not cover or wrap the power adaptor with a cloth
or blanket. Heat buildup during use can cause re
or deform the case. Use in a well ventilated area.
Remove the batteries from the instrument when us-
ing the power adaptor. When batteries are installed,
the power source automatically switches to the AC
power adaptor when connected. Leaving batteries
in the instrument can cause leakage.
Please refer to the “Attaching the Frame” section on
page 9 of this manual for instructions on attaching
the frame. Not following the instructions may result
in injury or damage.
Make sure both frame xing screws are fastened
securely after attaching the frame. Loose screws
can cause rattling resulting in noise while playing.
Please take care not to pinch your ngers or hands
in movable parts.
Do not expose to direct sunlight (in a car during the
day), high temperatures such as near a stove, or
extremely low temperatures, and do not expose to
vibrations or dust to prevent damage to the internal
components or panel disguration.
Do not use close to electronics such as speakers,
TV, and radio. The instrument’s electronic circuits
may cause noise in the TV or radio.
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to
you or others, or damage to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but
are not limited to, the following:
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modications to the instrument.
Always turn the power o when the instrument is not in use.
Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.
Do not place the instrument in an unstable position
where it might accidentally fall over.
Before moving the instrument, remove all con-
nected cables, to prevent damage to the cables or
injury to anyone who might trip over them.
Before connecting the instrument to other electronic
components, turn o the power for all components.
Before turning the power on or o for all compo-
nents, set all volume levels to minimum.
Never return the signal from the outputs (PHONES/
LINE OUT) directly or via an external device to the
AUX IN jack. Doing so can cause a feedback loop
that damage the instrument.
Handling caution
Never hold the instrument close to your face when
adjusting or replacing strings. A string may unex-
pectedly break damaging your eyes.
If you cut the strings when replacing, do so after
suciently loosening the pegs. Sudden loss of
string tension may damage the neck and the re-
bounding strings may cause serious injury.
Replace strings one by one to prevent the saddle
and pickup sensor from moving. A sensor is in-
stalled beneath the saddle to pickup string vibration.
If the saddle falls out make sure the sensor position
has not changed. Reattach the saddle positioning
the lower end of the saddle beneath the rst string.
If cleaning is required, wipe with a soft cloth. Do
not use thinners, solvents, cleaning uids, or wipes
soaked with chemicals. Also. Do not place vinyl or
plastic products on the instrument. Doing so can
cause discoloration/deterioration.
Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects
on the instrument, and do not use excessive force
on the buttons, switches or connectors.
Do not use the instrument or headphones/earphones
for a long period of time at a high or uncomfort-
able volume level, since this can cause permanent
hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or
ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

Caution When Changing Strings
When adjusting or replacing the strings, do not put your face close to the instrument. The strings may
unexpectedly break injuring your eyes. If you cut the strings when replacing, make sure you loosen the
peg suciently before cutting. In addition to damaging the neck, the sudden loss of string tension will
result in the strings rebounding causing serious injury.
Sensors that pick up string vibrations are installed beneath the saddle. Replace strings one at a time
to prevent sensor positions from shifting. If the saddle falls out make sure that the sensors have not
changed position. Reattach the saddle making sure that the lower end of the saddle is positioned un-
derneath the rst string.
Replacing the Strings (Nylon String Model)
When attaching strings, please use the following procedure.
Tie the strings to the bridge.
Changing the Strings
neck side
* If the string slips (1st, 2nd, 3rd strings)
tie one more knot.
Make sure the last knot is positioned
over the edge of the bridge.
After wrapping
once on the 2nd
string side,
wrap towards
the 1st string’s
Next, tie and wind the strings onto the peg.
* The following illustration shows how to attach the 1st string (the 2nd and 3rd strings are the same). To attach
the 4th, 5th and 6th strings tie and wind the strings in the opposite direction.
* Adjust the position of the string on the peg to keep it from coming into contact with the wood of the head.
After stringing all six strings, tune the instrument using the built-in tuner, any commercially avail-
able tuner, or a tuning fork, etc.
The tuning machines have spring-loaded
mechanisms which automatically take up wear,
preventing backlash. However, it is possible to
adjust the amount of pressure required to turn
the machines. Each machine has a tension
adjustment screw
, as illustrated.
Clockwise screw rotation tightens the ma-
chine. The tuning machines should be
adjusted to the extent that they are rm, but
can turn smoothly. This adjustment is normally
unnecessary, and excessive tightening can
lead to premature tuning machine wear.
Tuning Machine Tension Adjustment
(Steel String Model)
Truss Rod Adjustment
The curvature of the neck should be slightly
concave. Clockwise rotation of the nut tightens
the rod and corrects for too much concave bow.
Counterclockwise rotation of the nut loosens
the rod and corrects for too much convex bend.
Make any adjustments gradually. Allow ve to
ten minutes for setting, and check the curvature
after each 1/2 turn of the truss rod nut.
Unless you have experience with truss rods, we suggest that you entrust this
adjustment to your dealer.
