Get Yourself Ready to Play Out OnstageThe Yamaha APX500 is about three things: great sound, a smooth playing feel, and an eye-catching style! This thinline acoustic-electric guitar features a built-in tuner and a piezo pickup system, so you can plug it in at the coffeehouse and get natural acoustic sound through the PA speakers. The spruce top and nato body help the Yamaha APX500 pump out great tone even when you're playing unplugged too. There are multiple color options available, so you can find the Yamaha APX500 that best fits you.
Yamaha APX500 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
A stylish, thin body so it fits right up close to your body
The Yamaha APX500 is considered a "thinline" acoustic-electric guitar. The thinline descriptions means the APX500's body has a thinner profile that fits up close to your body, so it's easy and comfortable to play. Even with the Yamaha APX500's diminutive size, it still puts out big sound.
Big sound and presence with choice tonewoods
Just because the Yamaha APX500 has a thinner body doesn't mean it isn't thick on great sound. It features a spruce top, a nato body and neck, and a rosewood fingerboard and bridge - this one sounds great unplugged. You'll love the complex sounds and tonal colors that the APX500 produces.
The piezo pickup system means you can plug in and record or play onstage
Of course, when you do want to plug in your Yamaha APX500, you'll be ready. It has a piezo pickup system, which helps to give it a truly realistic, natural acoustic voice when it's pumping through a PA system. Another cool touch: you've got an onboard tuner, so you can always get your APX500 right in tune.

For the sound I get from it, I would have expected it to cost a ton more than it did. I LOVE IT, and if you haven't worked with Sweetwater people, your missing out on superior service and high quality products. They are the only way to go. I LOVE THIS GUITAR! close [-]
