Yamaha CPX500 MkIII Electro Acoustic Guitar, Vintage Sunburst
Key benefits compared to other products
The more traditional CPX is great for any purpose - from acoustic use at home or in the studio to full-on stage performance. Powerful, musical acoustic tone and great playability sit perfectly with natural, controllable plugged-in sound while subtler new finishes stop short of APX's modern looks but offer more personality than traditional acoustic guitars.
Upgraded Electric System and Excellent Playability
The new Mark III edition of the popular CPX500 electro-acoustic guitar features improved scale-length, nut width and back/side materials as well as upgrading the electronics to System 66.
With an exclusive Medium-jumbo body, the CPX Series guitars boast powerful, rich bass combined with smooth, delicate highs and sweet mid-range for an open, modern voice. Non-scalloped X-type bracing ensures a powerful yet controlled tone that allows the guitar to deliver strong, rich acoustic sounds while still remaining clear and usable on-stage.
Body Depth and Bracing Pattern
The medium-jumbo body CPX delivers an open, modern tone with powerful, rich low-end, smooth, delicate highs, and sweet mids. Non-scalloped X-type bracing ensures a strong, rich acoustic tone that remains clear and usable on stage.
CPX Soundhole: Round
CPX's conventional round soundhole focuses the midrange, while controlling bass, for a direct, powerful sound.
Electric System : System 66
System 66 features an under-saddle piezo pickup developed by Yamaha. Controls include a 3-band equalizer, an adjustable mid-range frequency control, and a precision chromatic tuner for optimum sound tailoring. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality.
