Overview

Like the NTX1200 and NTX900, Yamaha's NTX700 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar easily accommodates a wide range of musical and playing styles and offers the perfect place to start exploring your music and nylon string sound. The versatile, contemporary styled NTX line is designed with thinner bodies, narrower necks, 14th fret neck joints, and cutaway designs to provide greater comfort and playability for today's steel-string acoustic and electric players.

This Yamaha guitar is perfect for adding nylon-string tone to a wide range of musical styles from latin to jazz, Pop to Rock. Built on the classical platform, Yamaha's NTX700 acoustic-electric classical guitar features a cutaway, for comfort when playing in the higher register fret positions. This NTX starts with a solid spruce top, for warm, balanced tone. The neck, back, and sides feature nato, a soft hardwood for a balanced, crisp sound and full volume range.

The Yamaha NTX700 also features the A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement), an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise controll 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 Yamaha classical 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 the 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. Case sold separately.

Excellent electric nylon-string guitar

By John

from Sacramento

Comments about Yamaha NTX700 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

I get a great "natural" sound plugged into my Fender G-Dec 15w amp which was completely unexpected as I thought I'd have to shell out for an expensive acoustic amp. You could just plug the G-Dec into a PA and be good to go. I boost the mid-range a bit and that works well for various fingerpicking styles and I get a nice thump out of the bass strings using palm damping. Flatpicking sounds good too using a medium thickness slightly flexible pick. I'd put on a clear pickguard if I did it a lot. The acoustic sound is just OK for practicing without disturbing others - muted and not dynamic. Workmanship is very good.

      Buy it

      By Lynn

      Comments about Yamaha NTX700 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      I had bought a Cordoba c5ce and it is a good guitar. But with my small hands and shorter reach I bought this Yamaha...What a difference for me. Since the neck is about the same size as my Taylor guitar it was an easy change from one guitar to the other. Have no regrets for buying this guitar. The finish is great..as is the action right out of the box. Sounds good but of course as the Cordoba but I thank Yamaha for making such a professional sounding and play guitar.

      EXCELLENT GUITAR

      By Robert

      from N. Syracuse, NY

      Comments about Yamaha NTX700 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      For the money, this is one fine guitar. The fit and finish are both excellent, and the set-up was beautiful....nice low action which makes it effortless to play. It sounds great both unplugged and amplified; it doesn't project as much as my Alvarez Yairi classical, but that's the nature of a shallower body style. Still, the bass notes are quite deep for the size of the guitar. Electronics work very well, and I especially like the fact that you can adjusts the bass and treble pickups separately. And, the 48 cm. nut width makes it easy to play for players used to traditional acoustics and electrics.

      I'm in love!

      By Brett

      from Roanoke, Texas

      Comments about Yamaha NTX700 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      This NTX700 is my second Yamaha classical guitar and I absolutely love it. It plays wonderfully. The black paint finish is mirror smooth and the whole thing is just a work of art. I am definitely pleased with my decision to buy this guitar and would highly recommend it to someone looking to buy in the 500 dollar range. The neck is slightly thinner than most classical guitars, which might be helpful to people who play electrics or steel string acoustics.

      WOW!

      By Carl King

      from Indianapolis, IN

      Comments about Yamaha NTX700 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      WOW! What a guitar. The sound is fantastic. I have been looking at a nylon string for a long time. Read the reviews, I went to the Indy store and played one and tried out others. Told my wife and found it under the Christmas tree. I am a bit overweight and this guitar is very comfortable to play. I played through both a regular and a bass amp to try out the electronics. It sounded a whole bunch better through the bass amp. However, the sound is fantastic without the amp.

      a great guitar 4 anything nylon

      By Ruben Rivera

      from east chicago Indiana

      Comments about Yamaha NTX700 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      this guitar is by far the best nylon i chose 4 the money u can't beat it 4 the price and incredible sound. like Rodrigo and Gabriela say they r the price of a $1500.00 guitar they have the sound you would expect from a guitar of that price.They really meant it 2 I own one 4 about a yr yr and a 1/2 and paired it with the Fender Acoustasonic 150 and it is 2 me a good combo the amp makes it sing out what a nylon is supposed 2 sound like. If u adjust the amp and the EQ. pickup system you can make it sound flamencoish and classical and like a Spanish latin sound 2. I recomend this to anyone who wants a pro sounding guitar with out the pro price. happy playing thanks to hobart guitar center 4 selling it to me I love mine hope you love your when u get yours.

      Better than i had hoped for

      By dan mcclellan

      from Houston Texas

      Comments about Yamaha NTX700 Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      I have been playing for about 30 years and I have owned a lot of electric guitars. I have just within the last 10 years began to play and perform acoustic classic rock covers solo. I have an Alvarez jumbo acoustic and loved the amount of bass you could get from it so when I was going to buy a classical electric, I promptly ordered an Alvarez. I had it delivered to guitar center and picked it up. Long story short, it didn't work properly. I returned it to the store and while I was waiting for the guitar tech to come back from lunch, I played this Yamaha in the acoustic room. After about 45 mi playing it plugged into an amp, I was absolutely blown away by the sound it produced amplified. I returned the other guitar and brought this one home. When I got home and plugged it in to my own P.A. with 15" woofers, it was on a whole other level than anything I had previously owned. The range and adjustability of the tone is phenomenal. I play live with a looper pedal and can adjust the pickups to get a full bass tone as well as a slap tone. It has added a whole new realm of sonic possibility's to my playind and has become my primary live guitar for anything acoustic.
