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.
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 scalloped bracing pattern for 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 Sound Hole: Oval
The instantly recognizable APX sound hole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low end.
Electric System: 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.
The APX700 A.R.T. pickup system perfectly matches the wider range of a 12-string for a natural, open sound. Our APX stage-focused design makes the 12-string model every bit as comfortable and playable as 6-string versions.
