Hail to thee, short person!

By Ann

from Boise, ID

Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Thinline Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

As a small woman with short arms, full size acoustic guitars are difficult and uncomfortable to play. I've been researching smaller/thinner acoustic/electric guitars for quite a while, and was aware of this guitar but hesitant to purchase it without actually seeing and playing one. I finally got my chance and completely fell in love at first sight. It is small but the sound is anything but... I don't notice any loss of tone and it is quite simply the most comfortable, easiest to play acoustic I have ever used. Plugged in, it is incredible. I just absolutely love this little guitar. The neck is very comfortable and smooth as silk. Frets were not rough at all. Great action right out of the box. It doesn't have a fancy equalizer but I'll let my amp handle that. It does have an onboard tuner, volume, and tone control. It's so light and comfortable. I can't believe after all these years of suffering through with full size dreadnought's, I finally found my dream acoustic. It is every bit as comfortable as my electrics' and has a ton of personality. Very warm tones. Bright highs. I can't say enough good things about this guitar. If you are looking for a smaller guitar that packs a big wallop of sound, please consider the APXT2. From one short armed person to another...you will love this guitar. Thanks Yamaha!!!

Yamaha never stops amazing me

By Chris Capozzoli

from West of San Fernando Valley, CA

Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Thinline Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

For lower end acoustic guitars and basses Yamaha has quality products. For a 3/4 scale guitar this is a value and half the price of other brands. Very playable, the pickup and tuner work well allowing you to tune 1/2 step lower. Action was ok out of box, but due to my playing style and my kid starting to play, I'll bring it down a bit. The sound is warm. Naturally this guitar will produce more midrange tone than a full range guitar. But the pickup going direct for recording/live is nice since you can adjust the tone with it, along with the EQ on a mixing board and still get enough bass for live performances. With any guitar and especially 3/4 guitars you have to be careful when pressing the strings down that you are "fretting" properly. For travel this guitar is perfect. Intonation was fine out of the box. The soft shell case is ok but be careful transporting since is not a hard shell case.

great guitar for children to learn on

By Anthony

from Bronx, NY

Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Thinline Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

I have been teaching guitar to young children (6-12 years old) for the past 15 years. Many times my students have felt frustrated with the physical demands of the guitar that was bought for them to learn on. Finally, I have found the best guitar for these children to learn on and it is the Yamaha APXT2 3/4 size guitar! I recently purchased 4 of these guitars for my guitar ensemble. The children are all in 3rd grade and these guitars are the perfects size for them to learn on. Also, having a built in tuner allows me to tune the guitars quickly and with no need to go looking for a tuner in my classroom. I am now buying my 5th APXT2 for my 10 year old daughter and plan on placing another order for my new guitar ensemble students this coming fall. If you are in need for a beginner's model, look no further!

Cost to Quality

By Armand Olivier

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Thinline Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

The low cost for this 3/4 size guitar by far aces out others in this class. The pickup sound surprised me for this beginner guitar, it sounded good. It even has a tuner. We first tried the Mitchell 3/4 but it sounded like a toy. This still has a beginner guitar sound but it doesn't sound like a toy. For the money it really is worth the cost if you must have a 3/4 size like I needed for my daughter to learn on. Style/color purchased was natural.

      Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Thinline Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

      It is the perfect size for me. I had bought a full size used (pawn shop) a couple of months in the past, but multiple shoulder surgeries and arthritis hampered me from holding the guitar correctly. The APXT2 is just right! I know I will never play professionally, but now at least I can plunk around for my own pleasure without hurting other than my own ears. Yamaha makes this old man happy.

        I bought this gem for my 8 year old son who's been trying to learn on a regular size guitar. It fits him perfectly. However, this little beauty is so much fun to play, I keep threatening to take it for myself. The sound is good. It's not as big a sound as a full sized guitar capoed at the 5th fret, but it will still surprise you. This is not a toy! It's a 3/4 guitar. A high quality 3/4 sized guitar. If you play guitar, you need one of these little beauties.

                    Very nice guitar, but smaller than expected. Playing through an First Act modeling amp (not easy to find one anymore) it is quite loud and has pretty good sustain. Just make sure to pull the battery pack out of its holder when not in use......cleaning up the corrosion on the connections is a chore.

                        Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Thinline Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

                        I've been a professional guitarist for over 4 decades.I am now semi-retired from the Road, and I mostly busk in Chattanooga, just because I am unable to give up playing. I ran across the sunburst version of this at Guitar Center Chattanoga while looking for something else. I thought it was cute, and would make a nice addition to my collection. I am really into Parlor and smaller-sized guitars. It plays great, and sounded fine for a small travel guitar, better than both the Little Martin, and the Baby Taylor. But when I plugged it into a Roland AC60 amp, I was totally blown away! It absolutely does not sound like a small guitar, plugged in. It sounded as good any acoustic guitar I have ever had, including a Martin D-15, and my 1973 Ovation Balladeer. It actually sounded better than 70% of all the acoustic-electrics I have ever played. Full rich sound, and the small size makes it super-convienient to play, especially on small, tight stages. Like all Yamahas I have ever played, the action comes a bit high from the factory for my taste, but it is a minor problem, easily fixed. And don't let the reasonable price fool you...this thing is built almost bomb-proof, or as close as an acoustic could get to it. Outstanding construction and workmanship. And, it came with a wonderful, heavily padded gig bag with lots of pockets, and shoulder straps, perfect for this type of guitar. I use it to play small coffee shops, and pn the streets. I can carry it on my bicycle easily, take it fishing, canoeing, and even play it in the car while the Mrs. is driving. What more could you ask for? Now, I never go anywhere without it.

                        I was initially put off by the ukulele-like size and the toy-like feel that I almost returned it. But I decided to take advantage of the 45 day return policy and live with it for awhile. I'm glad I did because I realized how fun it was to play. Especially for a small guy like me (5'6"), I very much appreciate how easy it is to play chords in the lower registers that I usually have difficulty with on other guitars. Although it lacks volume when unplugged, it still has that amazing resonance characteristic of the APX series (I also own the APX500iii). I have yet to plug it in because I'm already so satisfied with the sound.

                          I used to be a professional, but now I play for fun. Of course I have my whole rig in one room of my home...amplification, electric guitar, pedal board with effects for both guitar and voice, and even a beat box. But what if I wanted to sit in my office, living room, back porch, at a neighbor's, or in a hotel room when I'm traveling? And what about air travel? This guitar simply fit the bill in every way. Very well made, big, pretty well balanced sound for its small body, built-in tuner and I can even plug it into an amp if I ever need to. Sounds good, was well set up from the factory (although I'll probably tweak it just a bit more)...and so much less expensive than an equivalent Taylor or Martin. I am very happy!

                              I am a short person with small hands and had stopped playing for a few years because my full size dreadnought was uncomfortable and awkward to reach around and play. I shopped around for smaller size guitars. The little martins and baby taylors seem to be very nice guitars, but I fell in love with this little bad boy. Don't be dissuaded by the size (thinner, smaller and lighter than the competition)...And it came with a free gig bag! :)

                                  Having smaller hands, this 3/4 size guitar is great for me. It has a very nice tone, although being a small guitar it is obviously quieter than a full-size and could get drowned out in a group unless you plug it in to an amp. It does sound wonderful plugged in. The onboard tuner is very convenient, and the finish (I got the sunburst color) is beautiful and gets many compliments.
