As an electric guitarist in the ’80s, if you wanted to play acoustic on stage there were few options available. In 1987, Yamaha made the first acoustic guitar that could be taken from a guitar rack, plugged in and played at volume, problem free; no more howling feedback, misplaced mics or dreaded extended sound checks. The latest APX600 features a unique under-saddle piezo pickup, the Yamaha proprietary SRT transducer featured in the highly-acclaimed a series range, a natural tone and the feedback rejection and mix-friendly sound guitarists crave. Although its style has evolved, the essence of the APX remains the same. Today, it boasts a more natural look, a deeper body for better bass response and greater volume, and a new non-scalloped bracing pattern for a responsive, dynamic tone.

  • 25″ Scale Length and narrower string spacing for Enhanced comfort
  • New scalloped bracing pattern for increased bass response

Good buy but needs action adjusted – made adjustment, now terrific I just received mine in black and it looks to be well worth the price. I agree with Thomas who commented here that the action is too high. Since they likely all come out of the factory fairly standard, i wonder how much of a truss rod turn Thomas needed to make. Thomas if youre listening, i would love your response. I have never adjusted a truss rod and dont want to mess it up. Also, im wondering if you adjusted the saddle.Update: a couple of turns of the Truss rod and the action is…
