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:

      I have been a fan of Yamaha Guitars since I purchased the Yamaha FG-460SA back in the early nineties. I still gig with that guitar so I can personally attest to the durability of Yamaha Products. The APXT2 lives up to my expectations for a Yamaha Product. It is well made, tunes up easily and most importantly STAYS IN TUNE. With this 3/4 size Travel guitar you don't have any excuse to ever be without a guitar. This guitar is fun to play and looks cool to boot. "This is a real hands on product review from Dominic @ Sam Ash in Lombard, IL.

      This guitar is good for a starter or for someone in need of a travel guitar. The contours mimic a full size and do not leave you needing more. The built-in electronics make it even more versatile. It has a stylish look as well. This is a real hands on review from Zak at Sam Ash Buffalo Grove.

          The 3/4 sizing makes it ideal for younger beginners or for someone looking for a more portable acoustic guitar.

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

            There are not too many choices when it comes to a smaller size acoustic/electric guitar. This Yamaha 3/4 size guitar is a great choice for those players who want a smaller size guitar with electronics onboard. While the unplugged sound may be a little thin, this thing sings when it's plugged into an amp.
            Perfect for travel, or someone just looking for a smaller guitar, this is a great choice.

              This guitar is one of the best sounding guitars for the price. With great tone and action it's great for any beginner, or anyone trying to get a good guitar on a budget. With a built in tuner, there's no excuse for out of tune strings! Overall a well built guitar ready for any level musician.

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

                At a 3/4 size, this guitar still sounds like a full sized model. The Spruce top produces a nice and warm acoustic tone while the Meranti back and sides add to it's overall aesthetic. When plugged in the built in pickup system stays true to the guitars natural tone without sounding too bright or tinny. Perfect if you're on the go to a gig or a beach bonfire.

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

                  Yamaha continues to make stellar instruments but has somehow figured out how to make them affordable for all levels of players.

                  Great tone, nice design, and the 3/4 sizing makes it ideal for younger beginners or for someone looking for a more portable acoustic guitar.

                  The electronics work great and sound great and the guitar tunes and stays there rather easily. I always stand behind Yamaha because they always stand behind every instrument they build. Typically, undersized guitars never quite tune up right or sound right, but this thing is different. I can't believe the selling price! How can anyone loose?!
