- Inspection and Set-up
As an electric guitarist in the '80s, if you wanted to play acoustic on stage there were few options available. In 1987, Yamaha made the first acoustic guitar that could be taken from a guitar rack, plugged in and played at volume, problem free; no more howling feedback, misplaced mics or dreaded extended sound checks.
The APX600 and APX600FM models feature a unique undersaddle piezo pickup, the Yamaha proprietary SRT transducer featured in the highly-acclaimed A Series range, a natural tone and the feedback rejection and mix-friendly sound guitarists crave.
- Thinline Cutaway Body design for exceptional playability
- 25" Scale Length and Narrower String Spacing for enhanced comfort
- New Bracing Pattern for increased bass response
- Abalone Sound Hole Rosette
- Stage-Focused Pickup System for shaping your sound in the mix
Although its style has evolved, the essence of the APX remains the same. Today, it boasts a more natural look, a deeper body for better bass response and greater volume and a scalloped bracing pattern for responsive, dynamic tone.
Combines all the attributes that made its predecessor, the APX500, one of the world’s best-selling acoustic-electric guitars, along with a few comfort and cosmetic upgrades.
Body Depth and Bracing Pattern
The APX thinline body offers incredible comfort, top-fret access and a sound perfect for the stage. Specially-designed, non-scalloped X-type bracing maximizes body resonance for full, natural tone.
APX Sound Hole: Oval
The instantly recognizable APX sound hole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low end.
Electric System: Piezo Pickup System for APX600 and APX600FM
This pickup uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular piezo pickup.
Electric System: A.R.T. System for APX700II
The A.R.T. pickup was designed with a multi-layer structure consisting of various materials. Because the pickups are fitted directly beneath the top board and capture sound from both the guitar’s top and the air inside the body, its natural resonance is preserved.

At Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12-point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly. All instruments are set-up to factory specifications. Any requests made outside of those specifications can incur part and labor charges.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
