As an electric guitarist in the '80s, if you wanted to play acoustic on stage there were few options available. In 1987, Yamaha made the first acoustic guitar that could be taken from a guitar rack, plugged in and played at volume, problem free; no more howling feedback, misplaced mics or dreaded extended sound checks.
The latest APX600 and AP600FM models feature a unique under-saddle piezo pickup, the Yamaha proprietary SRT transducer featured in the highly-acclaimed A Series range, a natural tone and the feedback rejection and mix-friendly sound guitarists crave.
Although its style has evolved, the essence of the APX remains the same. Today, it boasts a more natural look, a deeper body for better bass response and greater volume, and a new non-scalloped bracing pattern for a responsive, dynamic tone.
Body Depth and Bracing Pattern
The APX thinline body offers incredible comfort, top-fret access and a sound perfect for the stage. Specially-designed, non-scalloped X-type bracing maximizes body resonance for full, natural tone.
APX Soundhole : Oval
The instantly recognizable APX soundhole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low-end.
Piezo Pickup System for APX600 and APX600FM
This pickup uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular piezo pickup.
A.R.T. System for APX700II
The A.R.T. pickup was designed with a multi-layer structure consisting of various materials.
Because the pickups are fitted directly beneath the top board and capture sound from both the guitar’s top and the air inside the body, its natural resonance is preserved.
