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")

Perfect Size Guitar to Take Everywhere!

By 

from Phoenix, Arizona

Verified Buyer

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

After years of playing you start realizing how unnecessarily heavy and bulky most guitars are, I was looking for something that was smaller than usual but that still sounded great. Obviously its not a full body so its a little quiet, but i whipped out my guitar pic and it sounds amazing even tho it does lack a little bass. Also it has its jack to plug into an amp or PA system so you can definitely mess around with the loudness and tone. so overall weather you've been playing for years or just want to begin this a perfect guitar to start with or to use as a travel guitar. I have it right next to my desk and can easily grab it and play comfortably without bumping into everything and having to scoot back.

Great sounding guitar

By 

from Roanoke, VA

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

This little guitar is awesome. There was a small blemish in the body (looks like a dark smudge under the clear coat) but not enough to go through the hassle of sending it back. I highly recommend this guitar. Super fast shipping, too.

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

We purchased this Guitar as gently used, per the description. The guitar arrived in amazing conditions. It practically looked brand new and included a soft case for it. I want to say that Sam Ash did a fantastic job in ensuring they were selling a high quality used item to their customers. Their customer service was also top notch.

    • Learning

    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
