Saddle up because Yamaha's APX600 thinline cutaway acoustic-electric guitar is breaking ground in both comfortability and playability. It’s no surprise that Yamaha is still a leading innovator in amazing sounding guitars. Their earliest model dates to ’66 with the creation of the FG180 Folk model, their first in-house engineered guitar. The APX600 followed suit to its predecessor, the best-selling APX500, but added a few cosmetic refinements. Now, it’s easier than ever to access the full fretboard due to its thinline cutaway design. The distinctive oval-shaped soundhole was also revamped to produce more prominent low tones and reactive middle-range harmonic blasts. It’s beautifully complimented with a simple but classic abalone rosette.

Manufactured for Greatness

Yamaha’s APX600 is manufactured with locally sourced tonewoods. It features a tonal spruce top, nato body, glossy finish and specifically curated tropical wood for its neck. Like guitars in the widely popular A Series, the rosewood fretboard is enhanced by Yamaha’s go-to SRT transducer sensor, a unique undersaddle piezo pickup. It preserves your most authentic guitar sound with the truly mixable sound and feedback rejection capabilities that guitarists love.

Stylish and Sleek Build

The Yamaha APX600 thinline cutaway acoustic-electric combines incredible comfort, easy, top-fret access and an incredible sound ready for all stages in your life. It features a distinct oval soundhole for thicker lower-mid response and a more attention-getting low end, with a sweet abalone rosette to perfectly complement it. It is constructed from a combination of spruce top and nato body with a gloss finish and a locally sourced tropical tonewood for the neck as well as a rosewood fingerboard and bridge.

This upgraded APX600 features a unique undersaddle piezo pickup, the Yamaha proprietary SRT transducer. The same as the one featured in their highly acclaimed A Series range, it captures your guitar's natural tone with the feedback rejection and mix-friendly sound guitarists crave.

Although its style has evolved, the essence of the APX remains the same. Today, it boasts a more natural look, a deeper body for better bass response and greater volume, and a non-scalloped bracing pattern for a responsive, dynamic tone.
