Take the stage by storm
If you were an electric guitarist in the 1980s and wanted to perform acoustic on stage, you had few alternatives. No more screaming feedback lost mics or dreaded long sound checks with Yamaha’s first acoustic guitar, which could be plucked off a guitar rack, plugged in, and played at full volume.
The Yamaha proprietary SRT transducer found in the highly regarded A-Series range, a natural tone, and the feedback rejection and mix-friendly sound guitarists desire are all included in the newest APX600 and AP600FM versions.
The APX’s essence has not changed, despite its changing style. It now has a more natural appearance, a deeper body for improved bass response and loudness, and a new non-scalloped bracing system for a responsive and dynamic tone.
Body Depth and Bracing Pattern
The APX Thinline body provides exceptional comfort, top-fret access, and a stage-ready sound. Body resonance is maximized with specially engineered, non-scalloped X-type bracing for a rich, natural tone.
APX Soundhole: Oval
The APX soundhole deepens the lower-mid response and provides a more strident, open low-end.
Piezo Pickup System for APX600 and APX600FM
Individual components for each string are used in this pickup to provide an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with considerably greater dynamic responsiveness and tonal precision than a standard piezo pickup.
A.R.T. System for APX700II
The A.R.T. pickup has a multi-layer construction made up of a variety of materials.
The natural resonance of the guitar is retained because the pickups are installed just beneath the top board and catch sound from both the top and the air within the body.
