Yamaha APX600 Thinline Acoustic Electric Guitar Old Violin Burst
Acoustic tone, electric feel
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 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 APX600 models feature a unique undersaddle piezo 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 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 scalloped bracing pattern for responsive, dynamic tone.
25” (634mm) scale length makes for a more comfortable playing experience
