Yamaha APX1000 Acoustic-Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Solid Spruce Top
  • Flamed Maple Back & Sides
  • SRT Pickup/Preamp System for Natural Amplified Tone

Comfort and playability

The Yamaha APX1000 is a thinline acoustic-electric guitar, which means it has a thinner profile that fits up close to your body, so it’s easy and comfortable to play. A thinner body doesn’t mean the APX1000 isn’t thick on great sound.

Genuine Sitka spruce top for great tone

Yamaha chose a solid Sitka spruce top for their APX1000 for both its look and tone. Sitka spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. These qualities have made it the undisputed leader for acoustic guitar tops throughout the industry. And because it’s a solid-wood top, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Flamed maple back and sides

The APX1000 sports a body made from flamed maple. This wood is really impressing strummers at Musiekwereld for its balanced tone as well being aesthetically striking. Its rich sound enhances the midrange frequencies while maintaining top-end clarity, making it great for strumming. The sound is gentle and full, which is ideal for vocal accompaniment. Combined with the lively and defined sound of the spruce top, you’ll love the rich tone you get from the Yamaha APX1000 thinline acoustic-electric.

Yamaha System-63 SRT electronics

Using advanced Digital Signal Processing and real-world insight into audio technology and recording techniques, Yamaha have developed SRT – a pickup and preamp system capable of delivering an amazingly natural, studio-quality acoustic guitar tone. Sounds that were, until now, only attainable by professional recording engineers using expensive vintage microphones in world-class acoustic spaces are now easily recreated by any player, on stage or in the studio. SRT does not artificially create a guitar tone, rather it creates a faithful reproduction of the other elements that make up a great guitar sound – the subtle ambience of the real space between instrument and microphone, the characteristic EQ voicing of a great sounding vintage mic, the different resonances captured when you move a mic around a guitar. And because SRT uses your guitar’s natural tone as a basis for this process, the result is phenomenally realistic and full of the acoustic character of your guitar.
