    Yamaha APX 500ii Natural

    This is the first acoustic I have bought in years because the last "Brand" I had, got to the point of the more playing I did the worse it sounded! So I researched Yamaha since about last October. I was looking at a couple of others and am glad I purchased THIS GUITAR! Sorry Sweetwater, I didn't buy this here but wanted you to have the plug for it! I bought locally to spread my purchases around for a change. I bought the Natural but was looking at other color choices as well, It was a personal preference only. It only took a minute dialing in the tone I was looking for the first time plugged in! I play a Strat, PJ Bass, Acoustic Bass and Mandolin. I suggest you try this out because you won't beat the quality, tone or playability AT this price or even some other brands!! I have only had this three days so if you wish to factor that in? you be the judge! BUY HERE!!! :) These guys have been great !!

    This is my first guitar, but I'm thinking I'm not going to need another for a long time. This guitar has a very beautiful sound to it. After use for a short period of time of use, the guitar stays in tune for very long periods of time, which is very nice. Additionally, the dark red burst finish looks very beautiful. This is a great buy!

    I had seen this guitar at another music store. I played it a little, and was blown away by the sweet tone it had. I didn't buy it at that time. When I went back to look at it again, it was gone. I was turned on to Sweetwater by then, and bought it through them. 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!

    Awesome Acoustic

    I received this guitar for Christmas and I was very impressed. The build quality is exceptional. The onboard tuner is excellent and I compared it to my boss tuner and the were both the same. The slim style doesn't give up any sound quality. The electronics are excellent as well. I recommend this product. Very versatile and looks amazing!

    The guitar sound good. However it seems doesn't work with stereo cables. I love the neck size and the guitar weight. it sounds is great with acoustic processor.
