Small Guitar with Great Big Possibilities!

The compact Yamaha APXT2 acoustic-electric guitar gives you the quality and performance of one of Yamaha's all-time best-selling instruments on a smaller scale. Based on the super-popular APX500, the 3/4-size APXT2 is a fun and easy-to-play instrument that's perfect if you have smaller hands or are looking for a great traveling guitar. What's more, Yamaha outfitted the APXT2 with a System 68 contact pickup and active preamp, which includes a super-handy onboard tuner. Add to that a padded gig bag, and you're ready to play anywhere with your Yamaha APXT2 acoustic-electric guitar.

Yamaha APXT2 Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Undersized design provides oversized possibilities
  • Onboard electronics let you play (in tune) anywhere
Undersized design provides oversized possibilities

You don't have to have small hands to appreciate the APXT2's undersized ergonomics. If you're looking for a great guitar you can kick back on the couch and strum or while you're away on your next long road trip, the 3/4 scale of the Yamaha APXT2 is perfect for you. Of course its smaller-than-average scale is also great for new guitar players, too, but at 1-11/16", the nut is easily wide enough to accommodate full-sized fingertips.

Onboard electronics let you play (in tune) anywhere

You'd be surprised to know how many gigging musicians, even well-known professionals, actually prefer to gig with guitars like the Yamaha APXT2 acoustic-electric model. That's because you can take this comfortable, shallow-body guitar anywhere, plug in, and get full-bodied acoustic tone through the PA, courtesy of the onboard ART-based pickup system. What's more, Yamaha gave the APXT2 one of their proprietary tuners, which let you tune up quickly, without needing to plug in extra gear.

Yamaha APXT2 Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • An undersized version of Yamaha's super-popular APX500 acoustic-electric guitar
  • 3/4-sized design is perfect for smaller hands, beginners, and guitarists on the go
  • Spruce-topped meranti delivers balanced tone and natural acoustic sound
  • Onboard ART-based preamp and System 68 contact pickup let you play plugged in
  • Built-in tuner lets you tune quickly and accurately, without the need for extra gear
  • Gig bag included
Have fun playing wherever you like with your Yamaha APXT2 acoustic-electric guitar!

Perfect guitar to resume 29 year playing hiatus

Nevermind the look, the well rounded sound, the size and feel, but I've finally found the " right size" of a neck for the size of my left hand!! Now I can play chords and fills that I always had difficulty with, which was a major reason I stopped playing so long ago. I'm THRILLED I tell you. THRILLED!!!! I've converted from Atheism to SWEETWATER and the YamahaAPXT2.....a new reason to LIVE(slight exaggeration) and. thanks must be offered to Jason Kovach. for his valuable assistance and his patience. with my endless questions. Give the man a raise, I say. A substantial one at that.....now if I could figure a way to add a pick guard....SWEETWATER is my god....thanks for everything!!! I'm already playing4-6 hrs. a day. My. wife thanks you also...she has the new/old husband back, and with that I take my leave - a perfect 25th wedding anniversery gift :)))))

Sweet little guitar

I bought this guitar for my 100 pound wife to learn how to play. It fits her like a glove. She refers to it as beautiful and sexy if it were an accessory or purse that compliments her outfit.. Good pretty sound for such a small 3/4 size, beautiful finish. Have yet to plug it in and jam but have given it a run or two acoustically and enjoyed the freedom of the size. Strings are a bit too close for my comfort but I play a large dreadnought EPI D-14 with a wide neck. this guitar is perfect for her little hands! Tuning is a bit tricky and tight but holds well.
