Overview

Yamaha's NTX500 is a modern-designed acoustic-electric nylon string guitar with a thin body depth and a slim-profile neck for easy playability. Its ergonomically friendly design is perfect for playing Latin, jazz, pop or rock music. Yamaha's exclusive under-saddle pickup provides solid and cut-through plugged-in sound for when you are playing live with a band and need to be heard over the mix.

A.R.T (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) Pickup/Preamp System
Yamaha's A.R.T. pickup system is used on a number of Yamaha's steel string guitars and has received high acclaim for its superb sound quality, incredible dynamics and outstanding feedback rejection. Yamaha's engineers designed the A.R.T. System 61 especially for the NX/NXT Series, to faithfully reproduce the tone and dynamics of nylon strings. Combining a number of exclusive technologies, the A.R.T. system affords the NX/NTX Series the versality to accommodate an incredible range of playing styles from fingerstyle to pick to percussive flamenco, all while retaining the natural tone of the guitar.

Newly Developed Contact Pickup
A conventional contact pickup mounted underneath the saddle vibrates freely allowing it to pick up the natural body sound. On the other hand, it can pick up too much body sound resulting in feedback making positioning difficult. By comparison the A.R.T. system used on the NX Series guitars utilizes a multilayer damper in order to absorb excessive vibrations and control feedback. System 61 consists of two pickups mounted on the high and low sides of the guitar, each with its own control to provide the NX Series guitars with flexible tone tailoring. -

Newly Developed Preamp System
Complementing the characteristic warmth and full mid-range tone of the nylon string guitar, the System 61 preamp uses Yamaha's class-leading technology to offer an easily controllable, wide tonal range, making the sound of the NX perfect for any show or playing style. The preamp offers indivisual volume control for both pickups, delivering a totally natural sound with robust lows and clear highs. A built-in 3-band EQ offers powerful sound shaping while an onboard tuner provides excellent usability during performance.

NX/NTX Series
Combining a contemporary design with meticulous attention to detail, the NX Series offers the superb playability and feel of an authentic classical guitar in a modern instrument. The NX Series comprises two lineups: NCX guitars, with classical style fingerboards, neck shape, and body thickness, and the thinner-bodied NTX lineup with a narrower neck and 14th fret neck joint. A.R.T. pickup system perfectly captures the warm resonant tone, allowing you to bring the unmistakable nylon string sound to a diverse range of genres, from latin to jazz, pop to rock.
