Beautiful Guitar!

By Mike L

Comments about Yamaha CPX500FM Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar for college as I wasn't ready to buy a Martin or Taylor just yet. This guitar is AMAZING! It is a great value for the price. It sounds full and clean unplugged (much like other Yamaha acoustics) and plugged in it still sounds great. The electronics are made by Yamaha and not Fishman. They are pretty good in this guitar but I've heard they are a bit better in the 700+ series. The action is pretty low so there is a little bit of buzz, but I think its worth it to have an easy-to-play guitar. I find myself playing blues riffs on it though an amp (that I'd normally use a strat for) just fine.The old violin finish is beautiful. In fact, I would say it is the best in the CPX/APX series. Great acoustic, great electric, built-in tuner, very mobile neck. What more can you need?

Very Nice Guitar!

Comments about Yamaha CPX500FM Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I purchased the Yamaha CPX500FM as a replacement for a acoustic-electric from another maker. I was impressed with this guitar right out of the box. It features the usual Yamaha fit/finish for a guitar in this price range. The flamed maple top really makes it stand out from the crowd. The slender neck is great for players with smaller hands, and the nice low action compares favorably to an electric. Very nice and easy on the hands. The unplugged tone is good, especially after installing Martin strings. It tuned up nicely, no issues with frets or string buzz. The only flaw I noticed was a small bit of glue residue where the neck joins to the body at soundhole, it's only noticeable if you look right at it. Overall, this is a great little guitar for someone looking for a mid-priced acoustic electric. Great job Yamaha!

Awesome guitar

By Koaster

Comments about Yamaha CPX500FM Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have been playing for over 20 years and have never been a huge fan of Yamaha guitars. While looking for a guitar for my son, I played this one and was hooked. It rivals some of my more expensive guitars. I just wish I could find a nice case for it.
