,Hand-selected tonewood construction, real wood inlays and the incredible SRT pickup system.
The CPX series has always placed emphasis on playability, stylish medium jumbo body profile and cutting edge electronics. The Yamaha CPX1000 Medium-Jumbo Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar offers upgraded cosmetics, solid Sitka spruce top, flamed maple back & sides, S.R.T. pickup/preamp and exceptional playability.
CPX Soundhole: Round
CPX’s conventional round soundhole focuses the midrange, while controlling bass, for a direct, powerful sound.
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.
CPX Body Depth:
95 -115mm (3 3/4”- 4 1/2” )
With an exclusive Medium-jumbo body, CPX 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.
When professional guitarists want to record real acoustic guitar tone, they’ll record the guitar with a microphone. That holds true for guitarists who prefer using electric-acoustics on stage as well. Electric-acoustics are very effective in live situations due to their ability to adjust sound and balance volume with the other instruments in the band. But the sound that electric-acoustics deliver is merely the amplified sound from a pickup attached to the bridge or the top, and lacks true acoustic resonance and ambiance. True acoustic guitar tone that you hear on recordings only exists in the recording studio where experienced sound engineers have the means to capture that sound.
Yamaha’s new SRT system lets you create that same studio recorded sound. The system lets you choose from three different high-end mic types as well as mic positioning. It also lets you obtain more detailed sound by blending the sound with that from the piezo pickup and adjusting resonance. The SRT series brings studio quality acoustic guitar sound to the stage that will amaze your audiences.
Adjustable Body Resonance
The RESONANCE knob allows you to add body resonance to the sound, emphasising the natural tone of the guitar. * The RESONANCE control is only effective on the mic sound.
Blending Piezo and Mic Sound Sources
Blend piezo pickup and microphone sources to create a wide palette of tonal variations. Blending the sound from the piezo pickup with the sound from the built-in mic adds sharpness.
