The Yamaha APXT2 Adapts Best-Selling Features Into a Small Body Guitar That Offers Fun, Value and Quality

The Yamaha APXT2 is a sleek 3/4 size version of Yamaha's best-selling APX500II. This fun, yet well-constructed compact guitar is perfect for travel, practice, busking and even gigging.

Packed with features, the Yamaha APXT2 includes Yamaha’s proprietary Acoustic Resonance Transducer (A.R.T.) System68 pickup system with built-in tuner, Spruce top, Meranti back and sides, Mahogany neck and a Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. It also comes with a sturdy, padded gig bag.

The System68 A. R. T. includes a one-way active preamp and transducer contact pickup system that features mid-boost EQ for tone shaping and a precision chromatic tuner. The transducer system delivers a natural acoustic tone by dampening excessive vibration from the soundboard while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance.

And what travel guitar would be complete without a gig bag included? The Yamaha APXT2 includes a proprietary gig bag that ensures that it will be able to accompany you on the beach, around campfires or anywhere else your journeys may bring you.

Features:

  • Top: Spruce
  • Back & Sides: Meranti
  • Neck: Nato or Mahogany
  • Fingerboard: Rosewood
  • Bridge: Rosewood
  • Body Depth: 65-75 mm
  • Nut Width: 43 mm (1-11/16")

    Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Size Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is my first guitar, so I use it exclusively for learning. That being said, I can't tell you how it compares to other guitars. What I can say is that I'm enjoying it a lot. Since I'm short with small hands, I find it really comfortable playing over long periods of time. It sounds great, and the built-in turner has helped me immensely. I have no complaints so far.

      Great as a small travel guitar with a pick-up. It would also be good for students or people with small hands. It's the same quality as other Yamaha guitars. Plus it has a built-in tuner. This is a real hands on product review from Richard@ Sam Ash Miami

        Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Size Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Not just for kids! don't let the small size fool you, this is a real instrument. It is well built, sounds great and stays in tune. If this was not enough it even comes with a gig bag and the onboard preamp has a tuner built in. Good for travel and yes its great for smaller children who want to start playing as well.
        highly recommended!

        Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Size Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        As a sales staff associate of Sam Ash we're often asked to suggest an item for a newbie musician. This little geetar is one that I suggest & do so often in good conscious. She sounds fantastic & shouldn't be overlooked for any level musician! This is a real hands on product review from Big Jim at Sam Ash New Haven.

          This little guitar has all the features of a big one at a smaller size. I picked this up for younger niece who is 9 and she loves it. It is also good for any adult wanting a smaller travel guitar. The sound is great and the action is very comfortable. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Muisc

          Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Size Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          So the Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Size Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar is an awesome smaller guitar. It is perfect for traveling musicians who need soemthing to take up a little less space but still with a nice sound. It is also god for smaller people with smaller hands. It has a great sound unplugged or amped up. The pick up and tuner is a great addition. Another big plus is that this guitar comes with a bag!

            Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Size Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            The Yamaha APX 1/2 size guitar is built sturdy and a perfect travel companion. I would even say this is a good beginner guitar for smaller kids since it fits them better. The instrument is low maintenance and restringing the guitar should be fairly easy for any beginner. The sound is not too bad , it sounds fairly mid treble in range which is expected in a mid size guitar . This is also a space saver on many traveler types as we have sold many to people who want a guitar with them but can stash it away easily in overhead or in vehicle. Highly recommend !!! Especially since it includes a gig bag .

              Comments about Yamaha APXT2 3/4 Size Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              What I really like about this guitar is that it has a full sized fretboard and scale. It's body is just smaller for easy transport, so it's not necessarily a little kid's guitar, it's a very grownup guitar that happens to be small.

                Wasn't expecting much from this little guitar, but it really impressed me. Great playability and more importantly, great sound. Also, it stays in tune, something travel guitars are known to NOT do. Nice rich tone as well. This is a real hands on review from Bryan at Sam Ash Dallas
