All-solid wood construction and the exclusive SRT pickup system.

The APX series has always placed emphasis on playability, stylish thin body profile and cutting edge electronics. The Yamaha APX1200 Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Preamp offers upgraded cosmetics, solid spruce top, solid rosewood back & sides, S.R.T. pickup/preamp and exceptional playability.

This APX shines on stage. With its ultra-comfortable thin-line body and slim, fast neck the transition from electric guitar could not be easier. All-new color variations and updated inlays make sure APX looks as good as it sounds.

APX Soundhole: Oval
The instantly recognizable APX soundhole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low end.

APX Body Depth:
80-90mm (3 1/8” - 3 9/16”)
APX’s thin-line body combines incredible comfort, easy top-fret access and a sound perfectly suited to on-stage use with bright, clear mids, balanced highs and controlled lows. Specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing allows the guitar’s top to sing and maximizes the resonance of the unique body shape for a full, natural tone. With dynamics, sensitivity and clarity built into the design from day one, APX is a guitar not to be underestimated.

SRT Pickup
When professional guitarists want to record real acoustic guitar tone, they’ll record the guitar with a microphone. That holds true for guitarists who prefer using electric-acoustics on stage as well. Electric-acoustics are very effective in live situations due to their ability to adjust sound and balance volume with the other instruments in the band. But the sound that electric-acoustics deliver is merely the amplified sound from a pickup attached to the bridge or the top, and lacks true acoustic resonance and ambiance. True acoustic guitar tone that you hear on recordings only exists in the recording studio where experienced sound engineers have the means to capture that sound.

Yamaha’s new SRT system lets you create that same studio recorded sound. The system lets you choose from three different high-end mic types as well as mic positioning. It also lets you obtain more detailed sound by blending the sound with that from the piezo pickup and adjusting resonance. The SRT series brings studio quality acoustic guitar sound to the stage that will amaze your audiences.

Adjustable Body Resonance
The RESONANCE knob allows you to add body resonance to the sound, emphasising the natural tone of the guitar. * The RESONANCE control is only effective on the mic sound.

Blending Piezo and Mic Sound Sources
Blend piezo pickup and microphone sources to create a wide palette of tonal variations. Blending the sound from the piezo pickup with the sound from the built-in mic adds sharpness.

Comments about Yamaha APX1200 Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Preamp:

Every thing about this guitar is a delight.

My only quibble is the new electrics in this model. I'm still not convinced they have improved on the original APX 20 electrics. There heve been some problems with this new system. Intermittant cut outs. However Yamaha stands behind their gear and are happy to rectify problems.
Very well built guitar.
Bright clean and great sustaining sound. A beautiful and top line acoustic guitar comparable with instruments twice the price.
Build quality is flawless the guitar is a beauty. Sounds fantastic.
For the price it is well worth it and is a far better guitar than some of these big price pretenders.

wait for improvements

Comments about Yamaha APX1200 Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Preamp:

Good guitar in some regards: amplification, passable tone. Poor playablity, action too high, hard to press down the strings.
I would wait until Yamaha improves the playability of this instrument. The action is too high. The strings are too hard to press down on. The electronics are good, but the controls are poorly designed. They seem cheap, and liable to break off or become easily damaged. So, the minuses: poor control box design, poor playability. The good things. Thin body is more comfortable than full size guitars, though the tone is thinner. The rosewood model sounds better than the maple model. The anti-feedback is excellent. I have been trying to find a good electronic system with piezo and microphone pickups. Piezos alone sound too scratchy. Microphones have terrible feedback. Yamaha has conquered the feedback, and the amplified sound is good. No one guitar is a solution for everybody. Why? Because everyone's hands are of differing sizes. A petite girl with slender fingers needs a different neck than a big man with lumberjack hands and fat finger pads. Thus, we need different guitars suited to varying individuals. I like this guitar, but not in all regards. My choice is a series of compromises to what is offered on the market. Until Yamaha improves the ergonometrics of the electronics control panel and improves the playing action, I will pass on this guitar.
Good workmanship.
Expensive, but rosewood instruments cost more generally.

Comments about Yamaha APX1200 Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar with SRT Preamp:

The one I tried belongs to a pro-musician friend and is a fantastic bit of kit,he owns luthier-built high priced guitars that sit at home while he uses this one I would totally disregard comments made about playability and action, obviously made by a Newb' who doesn't understand that new guitars come with the saddle supplied for individual hight adjustment from high, down , you simply remove and sand it down to your own preference
but you can't ADD to it so hence its a bit higher to start with. Twenty minutes from start to finish had this one optimised.
