Take the stage by storm
As an electric guitarist in the '80s, if you wanted to play acoustic on stage there were few options available. In 1987, Yamaha made the first acoustic guitar that could not be taken from a guitar rack, plugged in, and played at volume, problem free; no more howling feedback, misplaced mics or dreaded extended sound checks.
The latest APX600 and AP600FM models feature a unique under-saddle pickup, the Yamaha proprietary SRT transducer featured in the highly-acclaimed A series range, a natural tone and the feedback rejection and mix-friendly sound that guitarists crave.
Although it's style has evolved, the essence of the APX stays the same. Today, it boasts a more natural look, a deeper body for better bass response and greater volume, and a new non-scalloped bracing pattern for a responsive, dynamic tone.
The APX600 combines all the attributes that made its predecessor, the APX500, one of the world's best-selling acoustic-electric guitars, along with a few comfort and cosmetic upgrades.
