Yamaha APXT2 Adapts Best-Selling Features Into a Small Body Guitar

Yamaha APXT2 Adapts Best-Selling Features Into a  Small Body Guitar -

Yamaha Guitars introduces the sleek, three-quarter size APXT2, which will be on display at Summer NAMM 2013. A smaller version of the world's best-selling acoustic-electric guitar, the APX500II, the APXT2 is perfect for travel, practice, busking and even gigging.

Packed with features, the new model includes Yamaha's proprietary Acoustic Resonance Transducer (A.R.T.) System68 pickup system with built-in tuner, Spruce top, Meranti back and sides, Mahogany neck and a Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. It also comes with a sturdy, padded gig bag.

"This versatile guitar, which is portable and easy to play, sounds a lot bigger than it looks and feels," said Dennis Webster, marketing manager, Yamaha Guitars.

The System68 A. R. T. includes a one-way active preamp and transducer contact pickup system that features mid-boost EQ for tone shaping and a precision chromatic tuner. The transducer system delivers a natural acoustic tone by dampening excessive vibration from the soundboard while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance.
