ABOUT YAMAHA GUITAR GROUP, INC.
Yamaha Guitar Group, Inc. is committed to providing the best products for guitar players through three distinct brands: Yamaha, Line 6, and Ampeg.
Yamaha began making classical guitars in 1941 and later introduced the legendary FG180 acoustic, a forefather of the FG series. Since then, Yamaha has created class-leading instruments, including the SBG and Pacifica electric guitars, BB basses, APX electro acoustics, the unique Silent Guitar and the TransAcoustic guitar.
Line 6 is known for products that leverage groundbreaking digital technology. With a long history of firsts, Line 6 has a proven track record in defining new product categories for guitarists. Recently, the best-selling flagship Helix® guitar processor has received numerous accolades and awards.
Ampeg has produced some of the music industry's most innovative amplification products including the first bass combo amp, the first guitar amp with reverb and the de facto stage bass amp, the SVT. Since the 1940s, Ampeg has offered unique and often first-to-market features and performance capabilities, resulting in six U.S. patents under the Ampeg brand name.
