Presenting a Yamaha Guitar to Frank Medley (Right).
Last Friday, we were invited to attend the Yamaha Acoustic Guitar sponsorship awarded to veteran Mansfield musician Frank Medley at Metronome Music in Mansfield, Ohio. Mr. Medley is a local legendary musician known for his “Jam Nights” throughout the North Central Ohio region for 35 years, his benefits for The Special Wish Winter Fest, Wounded Warriors and other charitable music driven events. The talented musician/vocalist performs on multiple instruments on any given night and has his own group, The Get-A-Way Band.
However on this day, it would be Frank Medley’s turn to receive the beautiful gift of a Yamaha A3R Acoustic Electric Guitar courtesy of Yamaha Music and Metronome Music . The owner of Metronome Music, Larry Miller was on-hand to present the gift to Frank in hopes of adding to the musical framework of Frank Medley’s Jam Night shows. The sponsorship was obtained in recognition of the appreciation for Mr. Medley’s many selfless contributions to the local music scene.
The All Solid Acoustic-Electric Dreadnaught, Rosewood Back & Sides with SRT Preamp/Pickup is part of the entirely new A-series line of Yamaha acoustic-electric guitars. It features a stunning fresh look, amazing playability and the cutting edge S.R.T. (Studio Response Technology) preamp/pickup system.
The A3R dreadnought cutaway is designed for today’s player who requires a reliable workhorse that looks feels and sounds amazing in all applications. A performance level ‘bang-for-your-buck’ guitar offering quality build & materials such as; Solid Sitka Spruce Top, Mahogany Neck, Solid Rosewood Back/Sides, Ebony Fingerboard/Bridge and a neck profile that is a thrill to play for hours on end.
Presentation to Frank Medley Slide Show.
Frank was smiling from ear to ear as Metronome Music owner, Larry Miller presented the six-string and guitar case to him. The flattop guitar MSRP IS $1,360.00 and retails for $899.99. With Frank having his “Jam Night” that evening at the Whiskey Warehouse Bar & Grill we were invited out to hear the new guitar in action. The beautiful guitar sound of the Yamaha A3R Acoustic Electric Guitar blended nicely onstage with electrical accompaniment and was astounding by itself, glimmering with resonance and fresh natural sound!
It’s fitting for Frank Medley to receive this musical gift for all he has done in the past (at many times on his own expense), he has given his time, talent and effort in assisting others in need. His recent composition, “Struggles” regarding the pitfalls of Heroin use in our area and the securing of beds at Beachside Rehab in Florida, for free Heroin addiction recovery, is just another example of his generosity from his heart!
If you haven’t witnessed one of Frank Medley’s Jam Nights, I suggest you take the time to check it out! The level of musicianship between all of the artists is amazing and although you never know who will appear; those musicians present will astound you with their local talent!
