Lefthand Acoustic Yamaha APX700IIL NT
The 700 series models from the Yamaha APX series are identical in appearance and design to the 1000 models. The difference is made by the A. R. pickup system. Since it takes into account both the sound of the strings and the body, A. R. T. is able to accurately reproduce the fine sound differences between APX and CPX guitars. Thus the special character of both series are obvious when amplified.
All models from the APX series were revised in 2011 and turned the world of electro-acoustic guitars upside down. Thus a completely new PickUp system was developed, which has set a new benchmark in terms of sound. Designed by Yamaha, the A. R T pickups are based on contact microphones mounted on the underside of the top. The guitars natural oscillation remain unaffected in their properties and transport a clear and defined sound to the high-quality PreAmp. Thanks to this revolutionary technology and careful shielding, all instruments are extremely insensitive for feedback, even at higher volumes. Additional features, a built-in tuner and 5 high-quality finishes are further highlights of the new models.
