Cosmetically stage-aggressive attitude with a spruce top and Yamaha’s own upgraded electric system.

The APX series places emphasis on playability with a stylish thin profile that fits the performing musicians body. One of the worlds most widely sold acoustic-electric guitar, the Yamaha APX500II Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar has been revamped and refined for a whole new generation of acoustic rockers. The APX500II series now offers new exciting colors, upgraded 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. 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.

Under-Saddle Pickup System
Controls for the under bridge mounted piezo pickup are mounted on the instrument’s side for optimum access. The battery compartment is also located on the side, close to the neck, to provide easy replacement.

System 65
System 65 features an under-saddle piezo pickup developed by Yamaha. Controls include a 3-band equalizer, an adjustable mid-range frequency control, and a precision chromatic tuner for optimum sound tailoring. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality.

        I recently purchased this guitar for my Wife and have it hanging next to my Martin. For the price it sounds great and seems very well made. It's a smaller body and my Wife found it easier to play vs a full sized guitar.

        She chose the green "burst" model and it is much darker than the one pictured here. It looks fantastic.

        The on-board tuner is a nice touch and seems very accurate. I have it amplified through a 60w Crate acoustic amp and am very pleased with its overall sound.

        If you are looking for a beginner guitar spend the extra cash and get this one...it is far better than the "packs" guitars and well worth it. I've see the white finish model and it also looks very good - I may buy that one myself!

        first off, if you're a profesional guitarist, or have done some serious playing for some time, you won't be very satisfied with this guitar.
        I've been playing for 6 years, and play just under a profesional level. The sound isn't amazing, but it isn't horible. If you do recording with acoustic guitars, this deffinetly isn't your guitar. However, if you play live this is your guitar. Its lightweight, comfortable to hold, and the jack is in the strap button which is awesome. The built in tuner is great also.

          Comments about Yamaha APX500II Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Went to the music store today to grab a quick lower end acoustic electric for a recording project. Last one I picked up to try was the Yamaha. I was BLOWN AWAY. I echo what everyone else here says about neck feel, tone, craftsmanship, etc. I will probably go back and get a 2nd one to store away in case this one ever gets damaged or stolen. I have high end guitars...this one truly is not far off the mark in sound and ease of playing.

          Comments about Yamaha APX500II Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I had bought a Yamaha Dreadnought, and was not overwhelmed with it so I rarely played it as I have other Dreadnoughts that I thought were better. I came back to return it and went looking fro a replacement. I saw this, and played it. The beautiful sound impressed me right away. Clear,bell-like tones on the high end and equally deep lows made me buy this guitar. It stays in tune and is a joy to play. I think any player in the spectrum would enjoy themselves on the gem. Well made and a nice price. You'll love it, as I do. It's my go to guitar.
