Yamaha APXT2 Acoustic The APXT2 is a smaller version of the world's best-selling acoustic-electric guitar, the APX500II. The APXT2's compact size is perfect for travel, practice, busking or on the gig. The body depth is 65-75-mm, width at the nut is 43-mm (1 1/16-inches) and the string length is 580-mm.

This new 3/4-sized model includes Yamaha's proprietary Acoustic Resonance Transducer (A.R.T.) System68 pickup system with built-in chromatic tuner. The guitar has a spruce top, meranti (lauan or Philippine mahogany) for the back and sides, a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, The bridge is also mahogany and the APXT2 comes with a sturdy, padded gig bag.

The System68 A. R. T. active preamp works with a transducer/contact pickup system and has a mid-boost EQ for tone shaping. Interesting is the transducer system delivers an acoustic tone by achieving a balance between picking up some of the small resonances and also dampening excessive vibrations from the soundboard.

Available in different Dark Red Burst, Natural, Old Violin Sunburst (pictured), and Black finishes, the APXT2 sells for $315 MSRP. Check: for more information.
