As an electric guitarist within the ’80s, for those who wanted to play acoustic on stage there were few options to be had. In 1987, Yamaha made the first acoustic guitar which may be taken from a guitar rack, plugged in and played at volume, problem free; no more howling feedback, out of place mics or dreaded extended sound checks. The up to date APX600 includes a unique under-saddle piezo pickup, the Yamaha proprietary SRT transducer featured within the highly-acclaimed a series range, a natural tone and the feedback rejection and mix-friendly sound guitarists crave. Even if its style has evolved, the essence of the APX remains the similar. These days, 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.
