Upgraded styling and specification with the exclusive ART pickup system.

The APX series has always placed emphasis on playability, stylish thin body profile and cutting edge electronics. The Yamaha APX700II-12 Thinline 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (12-string model) offers upgraded cosmetics, solid Sitka spruce top, revamped A.R.T. preamp and the same 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.

Case sold separately.

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.

A.R.T. (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) technology
Yamaha electric acoustic guitars have consistently used piezo pickups to reproduce the pure sounds of the acoustic guitar. But piezo pickups tended to overreact to changes in attack, which in turn caused distortion. To achieve ideal playability, we had to improve the way that these dynamics were controlled.

To provide a solution to this issue, the new pickup was designed with a multilayer structure consisting of six layers of different materials. This dampens excessive vibration from the soundboard while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance. Also, because the pickup is fitted directly beneath the soundboard, it functions as a transducer attached to the body.

System 64
System 64 is an original preamp system newly designed and developed by Yamaha’s guitar development team. The 1-way system incorporates two contact pickups mounted inside of the body underneath the saddle. Best matching between guitar and pickup was obtained through numerous trials using a number of voice variations in order to produce the most authentic acoustic tone possible. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality. The system also includes a high-precision tuner.

          Comments about Yamaha APX700II-12 Thinline 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I've owned a Gibson B25-12 since I purchased it new in 1967! So I'm comparing the Yamaha 700II-Thinline to a "vintage" Gibson I've played for many years. The Gibson is tough on the fingertips - a difficult instrument to play with a fairly wide, chunky neck.

          The Thinline has been in my sights for more than a year now, and I finally figured it was time to give it a try. I guess I didn't expect much, and even though reviews were mixed, I figured without amplification it would be on the quiet side. I was wrong about that. The volume is more than sufficient unplugged.

          The black version is really beautiful - it's mirror-like! Not a blemish on it, and the inside shows careful workmanship. The luthiers who worked on this really cared about the final product.

          The sound is great, and it compares favorably to my vintage Gibson. In terms of comfort and playability, the Yamaha wins, hands {fingertips) down.

          Over many years I've become pretty good at tuning a 12-string, and I rarely use an electronic aid even though I have a bunch. The built in tuner works very well, but I haven't had a chance to assess the amplifier. The guitar comes with a wrench for truss bar adjustments, and they include a heavy rubber - OVAL- sound hole cover to reduce any feedback (it requires some care to install and remove).

          I'm pretty sure that I'll hang on to my Gibson, but I probably won't play it as much as the Yamaha. I'm really enjoying this new 12-string.

              This was my first time using MF. I was a bit worried about what "very good" condition might look like when this used guitar arrived. It arrived and looked like new. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.

                Amazed at how lite the guitar is. This is the 3rd 12 guitar I've owned, and by far it is the best. With the on board tuner I'm in heaven.
                If you are looking for a12 string definitely consider this one.

                      that guitar is a very nice small guitar super Thin.
                      if you already own a 12 strings guitar not Thinline well this one is lot more small.
                      sounds very nice and it feels better then jumbo or normal guitars. + this store is great. good package. no damage stuff. brand new stuff.

                      looking for a 12 strings? you got to buy this one
