The cutaway body design offers extended playability making the NCX1200R perfect for a wide range of styles.

The Yamaha NCX1200R guitar inherits many of the characteristics of classical guitars, such as fingerboard width, neck shape, body thickness, and 12th fret joint. Its cutaway bodies and lower string height offer more flexible playability. The NCX line is designed to provide not only classical guitarists with an instrument that is a pleasure to play, but other guitarists playing a wide range of musical styles from flamenco to Latin to popular, and much more.

The Yamaha NCX1200R offers all the sophistication of a classical guitar along with outstanding, playability, and rich, high-quality tone in a truly professional acoustic guitar. It starts with a solid Sitka spruce top, for warm, balanced tone. The neck is African mahogany, while the back and sides are rosewood. Rosewood is a tropical hardwood that has long been the material of choice for acoustic guitar sides and backs. Harder and heavier than maple, it provides firm support for the guitar's resonating top and delivers rich, well-balanced overtones. Its warm quality is perfect for nylon string tone.

Classical, flamenco, Latin, or pop, whatever your style, these guitars play and sound great thanks to a traditional design ready to accommodate a wide range of playing styles. The neck shape is identical to that on a classical guitar. The NCX1200R's bracing design focuses on delivering the best of nylon-string tone, with warmth and excellent response. It produces a well-balanced tone over the instrument's entire range and enables this acoustic-electric guitars to accommodate a wide range of playing and musical styles

The NCX1200R classical guitar also features the A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement), an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise control of temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, the molecular properties of the wood can be manipulated into a more acoustically ideal condition, similar to the molecular characteristics of woods in instruments that have been played for years. In NX Series guitars, this treatment results in a sound close to that of a vintage guitar that has been played for years. It produces a sharper tone while simultaneously controlling dissonance in the high range. Instruments that have undergone this process have received high marks from a great number of musicians. Their evaluations are nearly identical to those for guitars that have been played for years, and their comments often include terms such as "well settled," "mature," "warm," "excellent resonance," and "clear."

Yamaha's ART (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) pickup system is purpose designed to offer the most natural, dynamic and expressive electro-acoustic sound on the market. Proprietary multi-layer contact sensors perfectly combine ultra-wide dynamic range with outstanding feedback rejection for the most accurate and natural performance sound. The Yamaha guitar uses a 2-way system with contact pickups mounted on the treble and bass sides of the guitar bridge. To reduce unwanted feedback caused by vibration the NX Series contact pickup uses an additional multilayer damper to ensure the tone is captured in its purest form. Complementing the warm, full mid-range of the nylon-string tone, the System 61 preamp allows individual volume control over the treble and bass side pickups, allowing you to get the perfect blend for your style. The System 61 preamp also features a 3-band EQ for sound shaping and an on-board tuner. Case sold separately.

      Comments about Yamaha NCX1200R Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      For me, when you pick up a guitar and think this just isn't for me, well, I'm returning it. The only thing I noticed is the G string,open and first fret or two seemed to have a resonance I didn't like. Maybe it's a nylon string thing, but the classical neck just didn't suit me. Very well made guitar as far as I could tell. My criticism may not be valid for a classical player.

      NCX1200R Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar

      Comments about Yamaha NCX1200R Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      I just bought the NCX1200R Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar.
      I Love the look; love the feel of the fret board. Very pleased with the built in tuner. It sounds amazing unplugged and amplified alike. I've been playing a Di Giorgio for over 30 years and thought it was great, but this plays even nicer. I was pleasantly surprised that the NCX1200R shipped in its case, not in a cardboard box like other guitars I've bought online - my first impression of the real quality of the instrument. So glad I purchased this guitar. It's my gift to myself for Thanksgiving, Christmas, my next birthday and Valentines, but worth every penny.
