The stunning APX600 Electro Acoustic is constructed from a spruce top and a nato body, creating a beautifully traditional appearance and delivering a superb tone. The spruce tonewood is a common choice for guitar tops, offering a classic crisp, versatile tone suitable for a wide range of playing styles. Its powerfully direct sound retains its clarity when strummed hard, making it the ideal choice for players at any level. The nato back and sides provide a tone similar to mahogany, offering a beautifully dynamic soundscape with a clear top-end and a warm character. The addition of a rosewood fingerboard provides the APX Acoustic with extra layers of depth and warmth, providing a sparkling high-end with an open midrange punch.

SRT Pickup and SYSTEM65 Preamp

The Yamaha APX is fitted with their SRT piezo pickup, which is designed to use the individual elements of each string to provide an incredible performance. Its clean and ultra-wide bandwidth signal offers an incredible dynamic response, offering captivating sounds with exception tonal accuracy. This pickup is combined with the SYSTEM65 preamp, with a 3-band EQ, mid FQ, volume control, and inbuilt tuner to provide excellent tone shaping capabilities.

The APX Series

Yamaha’s APX Series provides players with an excellent performance, dynamic tonal options, and an incredibly comfortable design. The unique APX body thin-line body shape allows the acoustic guitar to hug close to your body, while its cutaway design offers excellent reach to the higher frets. The APX soundhole helps to thicken the lower mid response with a prominent, open low end, while the specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing allows the guitar's top-end to sing, maximising the resonance of the unique body shape for a full, natural tone.
