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")
  • String Length: 580 mm

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

        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.
        This is a hands on review from Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.

          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?!

              Leave it to Yamaha to make the best little starter/travel guitar. This small guitar has it all, tone, sound, playability and style. Great for a beginner learning to a seasoned veteran who travels and wants a fun small guitar to take along. This is IT! This is a real hands on product review from Jason@ Sam Ash Huntington.

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

                  I went in to the store looking for a travel guitar. The APXT2 has turned out to be an astonishing surprise. For about the same money I was expecting to pay for a lesser guitar I gained great playability and sound quality. That the electronics, including tuner, are built in makes it the perfect travel guitar buy not to mention playing in just about any situation.
