Why We Love This Product!

Plug into Awesome Acoustic Tones!

The Yamaha APX500 is about three things: amazing sound, a smooth playing feel, and an eye-catching style! This thinline acoustic-electric guitar features a built-in tuner and a piezo pickup rig, so you can plug it in at the coffeehouse and get natural acoustic sound through the PA speakers. The spruce top and nato body help the Yamaha APX500 pump out sweet tone even when you're playing unplugged too. There are multiple color options available, so you can find the Yamaha APX500 that best fits you.

Yamaha APX500 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
    • The piezo pickup system means you can plug in and record or play onstage
    • A stylish, thin body so it fits right up close to your body

A stylish, thin body so it fits right up close to your body
The Yamaha APX500 is considered a "thinline" acoustic-electric guitar. The thinline descriptions means the APX500's body has a thinner profile that fits up close to your body, so it's simple and comfy to play. A thinner body, though, doesn't mean the APX500 isn't thick on sweet sound. It features a spruce top, a nato body and neck, and a rosewood fretboard and bridge — this one sounds sweet unplugged.

The piezo pickup system means you can plug in and record or play onstage
Naturally, when you do want to plug in your Yamaha APX500, you'll be ready. It features a piezo pickup rig, which helps to give it a truly realistic, natural acoustic voice when it's pumping through a PA system. Another cool touch: you've got an built-in tuner, so you can always get your APX500 right in tune.

Send us your love letter

Darryl, your note of thanks arrived like a gentle wind blowing across the surface of a still pond on a crisp fall morning, stirring the embers of a dwindled campfire encircled by the tents of campers awakening to the sight of a beautiful dawn.
