Yamaha APX700II Electro Acoustic Guitar, Natural
Key benefits compared to other products
APX series guitars are designed with a focus on playability. Their thin bodies and cutaways that provide greater access to the upper frets, offer smoother switching between electric and acoustic instruments. The special APX bracing design delivers excellent response with a thicker mid and high range tone. Another plus, along with the APX's great playability, is its capability for smooth lead playing.A truly inspiring guitar designed for the creative enthusiast or professional player.
The 700 series guitars feature styling and specification driven by the 1000-series guitars but with the exclusive ART pickup system. Designed to capture the guitar's full body resonance, ART's ability to faithfully recreate natural tone and dynamics means that the subtle differences between APX and CPX guitars are perfectly recreated, allowing you to pick the guitar that suits your style and know that character will always shine through.
APX's thin-line body combines incredible comfort, easy top-fret access and a sound perfectly suited to on-stage use with bright, clear mids, balanced highs and controlled lows. Specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing allows the guitar's top to sing and maximizes the resonance of the unique body shape for a full, natural tone.
With dynamics, sensitivity and clarity built into the design from day one, APX is a guitar not to be underestimated.
Whatever your playing style the APX700II gives you the opportunity to express your own playing style with incredible accuracy and authenticity.

APX Soundhole : Oval
The instantly recognizable APX soundhole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low end.
ART Pickup System A.R.T. (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) technology)
Unique multilayer structure achieves optimum dynamic balance.
Yamaha electric acoustic guitars have consistently used piezo pickups to reproduce the pure sounds of the acoustic guitar. But piezo pickups tended to overreact to changes in attack, which in turn caused distortion.
To achieve ideal playability, we had to improve the way that these dynamics were controlled.
To provide a solution to this issue, the new pickup was designed with a multilayer structure consisting of six layers of different materials.
This dampens excessive vibration from the topboard while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance. Also, because the pickup is fitted directly beneath the topboard, it functions as a transducer attached to the body.
System 64 PRE-AMP
System 64 is an original preamp system newly designed and developed by Yamaha's guitar development team. The 1-way system incorporates two contact pickups mounted inside of the body underneath the saddle. Best matching between guitar and pickup was obtained through numerous trials using a number of voice variations in order to produce the most authentic acoustic tone possible. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality. The system also includes a high-precision tuner.
