Overview

The Yamaha NCX2000 guitar inherited many of the characteristics of classical guitars, such as fingerboard width, neck shape, body thickness, and 12th fret joint. Their cutaway bodies and lower string height offer more flexible playability. The NCX line is designed to provide not only classical guitarists with an instrument that is a pleasure to play, but other guitarists playing a wide range of musical styles from flamenco to Latin to popular, and much more.

This top-of-the-line Yamaha classical guitar is designed and crafted drawing on the vast knowledge, craftmanship, and expertise acquired from over 40 years of hand crafting classical Spanish guitars. Its stunning nylon tone is faithfully reproduced with all its beauty and depth through an advanced electronics and pickup system designed by Yamaha.

The Yamaha NCX2000 starts with a solid Hokkaido spruce top, for warm, balanced tone. The neck is African mahogany, while the back and sides are rosewood or flamed maple.

Rosewood is a tropical hardwood that has long been the material of choice for acoustic guitar sides and backs. Harder and heavier than maple, it provides firm support for the guitar's resonating top and delivers rich, well-balanced overtones. The Yamaha guitar's warm quality is perfect for nylon-string tone.

Also known as "curly maple", flamed maple is prized for its bright, stunning appearance. Hard and strong it is often used for necks on electric guitars. When used for backs and sides it produces a crisp, clear, less resonant tone that cut through well making it great for lead playing.

Classical, flamenco, Latin, or pop, whatever your style, this classical guitar plays and sounds great thanks to a traditional design ready to accommodate a wide range of playing styles. The neck shape is identical to that on a classical guitar. The Yamaha NCX2000's bracing design is based on the design used on Yamaha's top-of-the-line handcrafted GC Series classical guitars. This design faithfully reproduces the finest details in your playing and delivers a bright, clear high range with a deep, rich low end.

The NCX2000 classical guitar also features the A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement), an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise control of temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, the molecular properties of the wood can be manipulated into a more acoustically ideal condition, similar to the molecular characteristics of woods in instruments that have been played for years. In NX Series guitars, this treatment results in a sound close to that of a vintage guitar that has been played for years. It produces a sharper tone while simultaneously controlling dissonance in the high range. Instruments that have undergone this process have received high marks from a great number of musicians. Their evaluations are nearly identical to those for guitars that have been played for years, and their comments often include terms such as "well settled," "mature," "warm," "excellent resonance," and "clear."

Yamaha's ART (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) pickup system is purpose-designed to offer the most natural, dynamic and expressive electro-acoustic sound on the market. Proprietary multi-layer contact sensors perfectly combine ultra-wide dynamic range with outstanding feedback rejection for the most accurate and natural performance sound. The NCX2000R acoustic-electric guitar uses a 2-way system with contact pickups mounted on the treble and bass sides of the guitar bridge. To reduce unwanted feedback caused by vibration Yamaha's NX Series contact pickup uses an additional multilayer damper to ensure the tone is captured in its purest form. Complementing the warm, full mid-range of the nylon-string tone, the System 61 preamp allows individual volume control over the treble and bass side pickups, allowing you to get the perfect blend for your style. The System 61 preamp also features a 3-band EQ for sound shaping and an on-board tuner. Includes hardshell case.

BEST PERFORMING GUITAR

By MAVIE

from Beaverton, Oregon

Comments about Yamaha NCX2000 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

I've owned the Yamaha NCX1200R for some time and thought no guitar would sound better at the price range. That still stand, and it's unfair to compare that to the 2000R which is in a different level. Plugged into the Trace Acoustic TA300, the NCX 2000R sound is divine. It's crisp, clear, accurate, and packing a punch. There might sure be a better guitar out there, but that's way beyond my imagination. I will probably make this my last guitar. Nothing else is matter.

Perfect guitar, very comfortable fretboard, great sound

Comments about Yamaha NCX2000 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

Works very well with or without amplifier. The tuner is very convenient. I do like the electronics part of this guitar, but, one option missing is the ability to change from pickup to microphone; they did solve this by providing a sound hole cover. I still have not found anything I do not like about this guitar.
