Thinline body, flame maple top, nato back and sides, die-cast chrome tuners, System65 piezo and preamp; Old Violin Sunburst

The APX500FM, a thin-line, narrow-bodied acoustic-electric, includes a Flamed Maple top, Nato (Eastern Mahogany) back and sides, die-cast tuners.

The proprietary System55T preamp, a 1-way piezo pickup with three-band EQ, adjustable midrange control and an onboard tuner. This new pickup is an under-saddle type, yet the piezo element is individually placed for each string in order to catch more accurate sound information.

        Comments about Yamaha APX500FM Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        This is a great product. Everyone who uses my guitar wants to keep it. This is my 2nd, its a guitar made to be amplified, and amplified it sounds fantastic. Its contoured so it fits into your body.. the nect is slick and super fast. It's great to practice with unplugged but it doesn't really shine until its plugged in. It's a sweet sounding guitar. I use mine in church settings and get-togethers. It is the envy of the other players.

        Comments about Yamaha APX500FM Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        I'm not quite sure what that other guy was talking about in his review, this is a stunning instrument for the price. Now I will have to say that compared to the volume and resonance of one of my Martin, this isn't the best, but as soon as it is hooked up to an amp (as it should be for a proper performance) this guitar is quite incredible. The built in electric tuner, though not the best I've seen, works as it should and comes in handy. My only problem with the guitar is that it doesn't come with a pick-guard, which isn't expensive at all to add later on. I use this guitar for small profile performances and for teaching lessons and it is one of my favorite instruments. But if you are looking for a well-priced instrument that gives you more than you payed for, or if you aren't looking for that, even if you are looking for a flute or violin and somehow managed to stumbled onto the wrong webpage, you should buy this guitar.

        Comments about Yamaha APX500FM Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        When I bought this guitar, I expected a decent guitar that has at least some decent tone and sound. I did not get this with this guitar. This guitar is very narrow-bodied and does not sound like a guitar for its price. If you plug the guitar in, maybe it sounds decent but it's sound is very flat in acoustic settings. The only positive I have about the guitar is that the color scheme looks pretty cool, but be aware that you will not be all that satisfied.
