I played a Yamaha A3M ARE at the guitar show - it felt lovely and played really well (to my clumsy hands) and from what I could make out (even in their acoustic cubby hole during the quiet period) it sounded ok acoustically.
The thing that I was also interested in was the electrickery where you can blend between the undersaddle piezo and one of 2 mic models/IRs
I didn't get to try that out - wondering if anyone here has?
I understand that the ones at the show were the version II of the range with an updated pickup and control system.
I also can't remember if it was the dread or concert version I tried - I suspect it was the concert size as it felt very manageable
