The world’s best-selling acoustic electric guitar, the 500-series embodies the pure spirit of Yamaha guitars – the perfect balance of performance, value and dependability. The new 500III models feature all-new pickup systems with a more powerful, dynamic tone and upgraded cosmetics that combine on-stage attitude with refined, timeless good looks.

APX’s thin-line body combines incredible comfort, easy top-fret access and a sound perfectly suited to on-stage use with bright, clear mids, balanced highs and controlled lows. Specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing allows the guitar’s top to sing and maximizes the resonance of the unique body shape for a full, natural tone. With dynamics, sensitivity and clarity built into the design from day one, APX is a guitar not to be underestimated.

Yamaha APX500III Features:

  • Body depth and Bracing pattern: The APX’s thin-line body offers incredible comfort, top-fret access, and a sound perfect for on-stage use. Specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing maximizes body resonance for full, natural tone. Their wide dynamic range, excellent sensitivity, and outstanding clarity make them impressive performers.
  • APX Soundhole : Oval: The instantly recognizable APX soundhole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low end.
  • Electric System : System 66: System 66 features an under-saddle piezopickup developed by Yamaha. Controls include a 3-band equalizer, an adjustablemid-range frequency control, and a precision chromatic tuner for optimum soundtailoring. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries thatprovide a stable power supply for improved sound quality.
