Steel string electric-acoustic guitar with cutaway
Please select instrument options
The APX guitars from Yamaha are the best-selling electro-acoustic models in the world – and with good reason. Their slim lightweight bodies are extremely comfortable to play and produce a characterful versatile sound while the advanced technology behind their pickups and preamps helps to produce a more accurate amplified tone than any competitors.
This APX500III model is the cheapest in the series owing to its laminate spruce top – more expensive models have a solid piece of tonewood – and Piezoelectric pickups integrated in the saddle instead of the contact pickups of the ART (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) system. Nevertheless, the tone reproduction of these less sensitive pickups is vastly improved by a SRT (Studio Response Technology) preamp which simulates a selection of microphones and allows control over the mix of body resonance.
Like the other APX guitars, the 500III features a rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets, Nato hardwood back, sides, and neck, durable die cast machineheads, and mother of pearl inlay between the frets. Its cutaway body shape is also identical and is available in your choice of 5 colours: Black Gloss, Dusk Sun Red, Natural, Oriental Blue Burst, or Vintage Sunburst.
Each guitar is supplied with 2x AA batteries which are needed for the preamp to operate. A small light on the control panel will tell you that they’re running out before they need replacing, and the chromatic tuner has an automatic 1 minute cutoff to preserve their life. No case or other accessories are included except for a hex wrench which can be used for adjusting the truss rod.
