Description

Introducing the Yamaha APX600 Thinline Cutaway Acoustic/Electric Guitar
In the 1980s, electric guitarists faced limited options for playing acoustic on stage. Yamaha revolutionized this in 1987 by introducing the first acoustic guitar that could be easily plugged in, eliminating feedback issues and the hassles of mic placement and sound checks.

The APX600 and APX600FM models feature Yamaha's unique undersaddle piezo pickup and the SRT transducer from the acclaimed A Series, providing a natural tone, feedback rejection, and a mix-friendly sound sought by guitarists.

While the APX guitar's style has evolved, its core essence remains unchanged. The current version offers a more natural appearance, a deeper body for enhanced bass response and volume, and a scalloped bracing pattern for dynamic tone.

It retains the qualities that made the APX500 a bestseller, with added comfort and cosmetic enhancements.

Body Depth and Bracing Pattern
The APX thinline body prioritizes comfort, ease of access to the top frets, and stage-ready sound. The specially designed X-type bracing enhances body resonance for a rich, natural tone.

APX Sound Hole: Oval
The iconic APX sound hole enriches lower-mid response and delivers a pronounced, open low end.

Electric System: Piezo Pickup System for APX600 and APX600FM
This pickup system uses individual elements for each string, producing a clear, wide-band signal with superior dynamic response and tonal accuracy compared to standard piezo pickups.

Electric System: A.R.T. System for APX700II
The A.R.T. pickup features a multi-layer structure with various materials, capturing sound from the guitar's top and body cavity to preserve its natural resonance.
