Yamaha APX600 Thineline Acoustic Electric Guitar
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 APX600 models feature a unique undersaddle 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 scalloped bracing pattern for responsive, dynamic tone.
Combines all the attributes that made its predecessor, the APX500, one of the world’s best-selling, acoustic-electric guitars, along with a few comfort and cosmetic upgrades.
- Thinline Cutaway Body for Exceptional Playability
- 25" Scale Length and Narrower String Spacing for Enhanced Comfort
- Bracing Pattern for Increased Bass Response
- Abalone Sound Hole Rosette
- Stage-Focused Pickup System for Shaping Your Sound in the Mix
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: 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.
