The legendary, stage-ready acoustic, the Yamaha APX, comes back with a vengeance in the new APX600 model. Explore the comfort and playability of the slim-bodied APX600 Acoustic Guitar. Available in five cool finishes.
In any electro-acoustic, the combination of the guitar’s acoustic sound and its pickup is the heart of the sound.
The latest APX600 features a unique undersaddle piezo pickup, Yamaha’s proprietary Pickup-R transducer – the same pickup as featured in the highly acclaimed A Series range and boasting incredible dynamic range, natural tone and the feedback rejection and mix-friendly sound that guitarists need and want. Yamaha’s legendary active preamp is still a big feature of APX, and being built by Yamaha’s audio-visual division, the sound quality is everything you’d expect from the world’s number one.
Styles have changed a little since 1987, but the essence of APX is the same as ever. Today’s APX600 guitars boast a more natural look, 5mm deeper body for better bass response and greater volume and, under the hood, a new non-scalloped bracing pattern for a responsive, dynamic tone.

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.
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 APX600
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, piezo pickup.
