Small Performer's Guitar with Great Big Possibilities!

Step up to a performer's guitar in a compact size with the exotic-wood Yamaha APXT2EW acoustic-electric guitar! This premium upgrade to the Yamaha APXT2 gives you the quality and performance of one of Yamaha's all-time best-selling instruments in a smaller scale. Based on the super-popular APX500, the 3/4-size APXT2EW is a fun and easy-to-play instrument that's perfect for smaller hands and those looking for a great travel guitar. What's more, Yamaha outfitted the APXT2EW with a System 68 contact pickup and active preamp, which includes a shandy onboard tuner for the stage or studio. Add to that a padded gig bag, and you're ready to play anywhere with your Yamaha APXT2EW acoustic-electric guitar.

Undersized design provides oversized possibilities

You don't have to have small hands to appreciate the APXT2EW's undersized ergonomics. If you're looking for a great guitar you can kick back on the couch and strum while you're away on your next long road trip - one with looks that are perfect for any stage - the 3/4 scale of the Yamaha APXT2EW may be 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 APXT2EW 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 APXT2EW one of their proprietary tuners, which let you tune up quickly, without needing to plug in extra gear.

  • An undersized version of Yamaha's super-popular APX500 acoustic-electric guitar

Great beginner guitar

Bought this guitar for my girlfriend to learn to play on, she's a small lady and this guitar fits her perfectly. I find it easy to play with good action and it sounds really good too. The Mango top is really cool with an exotic wood pattern, like no other guitar I've ever seen. Great guitar for kids or smaller people like my girlfriend.


Just got it today, I sat down looking at it and thought wow sure is small, It needed a tune up, Any guitar no matter how well that is boxed up will go out of tune, It was freezing cold when I unboxed it. Warm, Cold, and wood does not mix, Only thing I did not like is the action was to high, Easy fix I just took a 16th of a inch off the bridge saddle and a 32nd off the nut. plays great and is a well built guitar. very pretty, I like low action I change it on all my guitars I have 6 of them 3 Gibson and 2 fender and this cool little Yamaha, plays great, Good price to.,,, TY Sweetwater.
Music background: 50+ years of guitar playing

So disappointed

Springs missing from the battery box. Impossible to tune. total garbage. I have been playing guitar for over sixty years and have purchased several guitars and a resonator from Sweetwater. Where was the prior shipment inspection? I have lost all faith in Sweetwater and will not make another purchase from them.

the shape the finish

The cutaway is too much and makes the body like a deformed shape The finish is dull, dark, no style, no binding
