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 Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar 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.

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' 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' 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' 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 Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This guitar was my first step from the entre level guitars. I was looking for something that was easy to play yet sounded and looked good. The APX700ii fits that bill to a T. When it come out of the box it played pretty good, but after having it set up by my local guitar shop, this guitar really shines. I play with a lot of professional musicians who can't get over how well this guitar plays and sounds. The neck is really fast and the action is low. I can't comment too much on the electric aspect of the guitar because I rarely plug it in. The times I have, it has sound great, but that's just pushing it through a small 15W amp. I do like the ease of built in tuner and that the guitar uses AA batteries. I'm about to expand and get a larger dreadnought, but I haven't found one yet that sounds as good as my Yamaha without spending over $1K. Bottom line is that for the money, you can't get much better in both sound and quality.

        Comments about Yamaha APX700II Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I became enchanted by this guitar after picking up my friend's 80's APX-7 with composite back. Back when he bought it in the 80's, he paid over one hundred more than what I paid for this today for this guitar. Today's pricing from Musician's Friend with free shipping, for a "demo model condition", was simply impossible to pass up.

        This guitar has it all. You can easily lower the action for even more effortless playing experience. I restrung this with Martin Extra Light strings. The instrument is just a joy to handle. Above all, this "recertified" instrument arrived in a vurtually brand new condition, with a bonus - it has been tested and played by professionals before being shipped to me!

        The finish is absolutely gorgeous, and the guitar itself weighs very little. The body size is nearly Parlor. The cut-away is perfect. The oval rosette makes this look unique. Compact and extremely useful control panel on top, measuring no more than 3.5" x 3" gives you all the volume and tuning controls you need.

        This guitar produces a very crisp, true sound with a pick. Without a pick this sounds like any other respectable classical brand. I've heard and read stories of musicians trying this for the first time and not believing that this is a Chinese-crafted instrument priced hundreds, if not thousands, less than comparable high quality brands.

        I'm very glad I have this added to my guitar collection, and can't put this down in the evenings. Buy one, be it your beginner guitar or serious performance piece. You won't be disappointed.
