Overview

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. Constructed from a combination of spruce top and nato body with a gloss finish and a locally sourced tropical tonewood for the neck with 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.

Case sold separately.

Comments about Yamaha APX600 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Beginning guitarist. Guitar appears well made, has built in tuner which is very nice for an untrained ear. The Guitar is nice and light, thin body and still sounds very mellow and deep, did put a set of elixir .13-.53's on it. I am greatly satisfied, it almost calls me to come practice, which is how one gets to be a Good Guitarist. Happy with purchase!

    Comments about Yamaha APX600 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've had a few acoustic guitars (Taylor, Alvarez, Godin) and this Yamaha AXP600 is my favorite. Guitar Center only had the display model (these sell pretty fast) so I had the store order a new one for me. It was delivered 2 days later at my house - that was fast! Out of the box, it was flawless. No defects of any kind. Setup was spot on. String height was 2mm low E and 1.75mm high E. That's very playable for me but I like my action a little lower so I sanded down the saddle to get around 1.75mm low E and 1.50mm high E. No buzzing whatsoever and now even more playable than ever. The thin body design is also a great feature
    and makes the guitar even easier and more enjoyable to play. It feels comfortable as most all of my playing is in the sitting position. Very lightweight too at about 4.5 lbs.

    Because of the thin design it doesn't have a lot of punch to it when played without an amp but when I plug it into my little Acoustic A20 amp, it is amazing how good it sounds. I also swapped out the 12-53 strings (too squeaky and rough feeling for me) for Elixir 11-52 Polyweb coated strings - much easier on my sensitive finger tips. You just can't beat this guitar especially in this price range of $300. There's a reason why it has so many good reviews, here and elsewhere. And I highly recommend it also. Kudos to Yamaha and to Guitar Center.
