Upgraded Electric System and Excellent Playability
The new Mark III version of Yamaha's best-selling electro-acoustic guitar brings improvements to scale-length, neck width, back side and neck material as well as an upgrade to the electronics - the APX500III features System 66.
The APX's thin-line body combines incredible comfort, easy top-fret access and a sound perfectly suited to on-stage use with bright, clear mids, balanced highs and controlled lows. Specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing allows the guitar’s top to sing and maximises the resonance of the unique body shape for a full, natural tone. With dynamics, sensitivity and clarity built into the design from day one, APX is a guitar not to be underestimated.

APX Soundhole: Oval
The instantly recognisable APX soundhole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low end.

System 66 features an under-saddle piezo pickup developed by Yamaha. Controls include a 3-band equalizer, an adjustable mid-range frequency control, and a precision chromatic tuner for optimum sound tailoring. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality.
