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.

The smaller size of these guitars makes them ideally suited to deeper alternate tunings and aggressive playing styles.

Yamaha apxt2ew - 3/4 acoustic electric

We decided that our 7 yr old grandson was earnest about wanting to learn to play guitar and wanted to give him something easier for him to play. He was struggling with holding a full sized guitar. They are in an apartment so acoustic with an electric option was key. When Brian LeMert showed us this Yamaha, it bought the guitar search in focus. Price...GREAT. Built in, easy to use tuner that runs off the battery. Battery really easy to get to and replace. Easy for him to grab chords on. Sounds good in both acoustic and electric modes. It comes with a gig bag. It is light, easy to carry, hold, store, and fit into a full car. The best thing...he played it four different times on Xmas day. Best testimony ever, eh?

I don't really care what others may think about this little beauty, it kinda grows on you. Had it for 2 weeks before finally tightening up the truss rod 3/4 turn to get the action I wanted; hold a nickel between the low E string and the 7th fret in an upright position. Don't let the small size fool you, this sleeper just sits by my desk and waits its turn. Great little addition to my entourage which is driving my girlfriend crazy. I think this makes 23 guitars collected over the years, but hey, who's counting. Love em all...
