The NX Series features contemporary body styles and proprietary preamp and pickup systems developed with the needs of live performers in mind. The NCX5 will appeal to both accomplished nylon-string players in search of superior amplified sound and electric and steel-string players seeking to explore the beauty of nylon-string sounds. A familiar choice for nylon-string enthusiasts, the NCX5 demonstrates a contemporary style with a traditional neck profile, amongst other classical-nylon nuances. The unparalleled Yamaha Atmosfeel pickup system takes this guitar's electronics to new heights, and a solid European spruce top is one of many features contributing to the NCX5's gorgeous tone. With their sleek single-cutaway body shapes, appealing wood choices, colorful rosette patterns and tasteful appointments, NX Series guitars are designed for contemporary players seeking the perfect combination of comfort and style.

Contemporary Style with a Traditional Neck Profile
A bit of the best of both worlds exists with the NCX5. Despite impressive electronics and a clean-cut modern look, this guitar is a familiar choice for nylon-string players. With a traditional neck profile/width, traditional classical guitar body depth and circular rosette, you'll get that comfortable nylon feel with all of the power and volume of a modern-day guitar setup. Whether it's classical, flamenco, smooth jazz or bossa nova, you'll feel right at home.

Unparalleled Yamaha Atmosfeel Pickup System
The Yamaha Atmosfeel pickup system provides unparalleled amplified sound even at performance-level volumes. An undersaddle piezo pickup with individual string sensors captures only the mid and low-mid frequencies (eliminating the characteristic brittleness of piezo pickups), while a unique synthetic sheet transducer captures the highs, and an internal microphone captures overall body resonance and "airiness". The simple and intuitive Atmosfeel preamp controls let you blend the microphone sound into the premixed pickup sound. These simplified controls mean that guitarists are able to dial in the desired settings quickly and without the need to actually look at the controls.

Solid European Spruce Top
While electronics are crucial towards such a powerful amplified sound, it all starts with the wood. Featuring a solid European spruce top, solid walnut back and sides and an African mahogany neck, the NCX5 resonates with gorgeous tone and punchy low-end Whether it's a bedroom practice, open mic night, restaurant gig or Madison Square Garden performance, feel confident knowing this guitar's natural sound is sonically excellent.
