Body depth and Bracing pattern
The APX’s thin-line body offers incredible comfort, top-fret access, and a sound perfect for on-stage use. Specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing maximizes body resonance for full, natural tone. Their wide dynamic range, excellent sensitivity, and outstanding clarity make them impressive performers.
APX Soundhole : Oval
The instantly recognizable APX soundhole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low end.
Electric system : Piezo pickup system for APX500III
This pickup uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular, ribbon-type piezo pickup.
The world’s best-selling acoustic electric guitar, the 500-series embodies the pure spirit of Yamaha guitars – the perfect balance of performance, value and dependability. The new 500III models feature all-new pickup systems with a more powerful, dynamic tone and upgraded cosmetics that combine on-stage attitude with refined, timeless good looks.
