The APX series has always placed emphasis on playability, stylish thin body profile and cutting edge electronics. The Yamaha APX1200 Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Preamp offers upgraded cosmetics, solid spruce top, solid rosewood back & sides, S.R.T. pickup/preamp and exceptional playability.
This APX shines on stage. With its ultra-comfortable thin-line body and slim, fast neck the transition from electric guitar could not be easier. All-new color variations and updated inlays make sure APX looks as good as it sounds.
APX Soundhole: Oval
The instantly recognizable APX soundhole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low end.
APX Body Depth:
80-90mm (3 1/8” - 3 9/16”)
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.
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.
