Yamaha APX600 Electro Acoustic Guitar Oriental Blue Burst
What We Think
The APX600 is a superb small-bodied electro- acoustic guitar. This model sports a spruce top and a nato back and sides. The guitar has a wide frequency range for such a neatly compact size. The crisp and clear tone is thanks to the spruce top, mixing with the new bracing system Yamaha has rounded the low end beautifully and created the best of both ends of the spectrum
This is a great guitar for players at any level. It has a 25” scale length and narrow string spacing which means this guitar will play like butter on the lead lines but also has the quality build to let chords ring out in full force. The Rosewood fretboard improves the depth and warmth to the open mid-range up. All these features working in tandem make the 600
The pickup system on the APX has been designed to capture the individual elements of each string to give the most balances sound when plug into and amp or PA. And finally you get a 3-band EQ, volume control and a built-in tuner so that you'll never be caught without being in tune.
The APX 600 comes in beautiful collection of finishes and truly is the cherry on the cake for this feature packed item that won’t break the bank
I was looking for a great acoustic that works well on stage or in the studio, I honestly can’t recommend this guitar enough the dynamic feel of the neck and the big tone from this guitar punches well above its weight price wise.
I had heard they were bringing out this model and wondered what the new specs would be and how they would impact on this new model, the new model has a shorter scale neck making it even better than the old scale of 650mm the new guitar has 634mm making it much easier to play and pick higher up the neck.
The pickup is very clear, punchy and allows for a great range of sonic control of your sound this guitar is capable of generating any sound thick or thin when plugged into an amp, simply beautiful.
The spruce top is bright and responsive giving the guitar a great voice and allowing the player to mimic any style or genre with class and style
