The Yamaha APX1200II is Yamaha’s flagship performance acoustic electric guitar. Yamaha are incredibly modest when it comes to talking about their musical instruments and there is much to be proud about with this superb guitar.

With its thinline cutaway body style, the Yamaha APX1200II acoustic-electric guitar offers a comfortable and lightweight experience for all players. Featuring Yamaha’s renowned APX slimline cutaway body, it has been designed to sit up close to your body, making it is easy and comfortable to play. Lighter in weight than a dreadnought or 808 style acoustic, the APX1200II is a delight for playing in the studio, on stage, jamming with friends or kicking back at home. Yamaha rewrote the book on what can be expected from a guitar of this size and the APX1200II produces a full, rich tone despite the slimmer body.

The hand crafted APX1200II features a solid Sitka Spruce top along with solid Rosewood back and sides. This highly prized combination is the bedrock of some of the world’s finest acoustic guitars and with good reason, setting a broad sonic foundation for any playing style. As they settle in with time and playing, these solid tonewoods will develop even more harmonic richness.

The acoustic tones of this beauty are projected through the innovative APX soundhole. These acoustically balanced tones focuses low-mid energy for powerful fundamentals and sonic punch along with sweet highs. A bespoke rubber feedback buster is included but thanks to Yamaha’s SRT electronics, we have yet to use it.

Between its solid Rosewood back and sides, solid spruce top, and innovative APX soundhole shape, the APX1200II sings with a powerful low-mid response and wide sonic range. When you’re ready to plug in and play, you’ll be rewarded with studio-quality sound thanks to its built-in Studio Response Technology (SRT) pickup and preamp. From practice at home to plugged-in performances, your expectations should be exceeded with the Yamaha APX1200II acoustic-electric guitar.

The World’s Best Acoustic Guitar Pickup / Preamp System

This is APX1200II’s silver bullet – Yamaha’s SRT system, which brings the wonderful acoustic tones of this fine guitar to the stage. The SRT system models these microphones and the ambience of a professional studio environment, resulting in superbly vivid and natural acoustic tone. The low-profile controls include Master Volume, Treble, Bass/Acoustic Feedback Reduction and Mic Blend/Mic Selection.

Yamaha’s proprietary SRT pickup design 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, ribbon-type piezo pickup.

Using the blend control, you can balance the output from the under-bridge piezo elements with the modeling of three highly coveted condenser microphones:

⦁ Neumann KM 56 small-diaphragm condenser
⦁ Neumann U 67 large-diaphragm condenser
⦁ Royer R-122 active ribbon microphone

The fact that buying these microphones (if you could find examples of the actual vintage mics used) would add up to tens of thousands of dollars is not lost on us either. The control offered by the SRT system is remarkable allowing to you be able to select between (virtual) close or distant mic placement with the focus/wide button and then dial in just the right amount of body resonance. The studio-quality, natural tone and clarity provided by the SRT system elevates your amplified guitar tone straight to the top of the class.

Pro-SCM setup for optimum comfort and playability

This is a fine guitar still, our regular customers are fussy and our Pro-SCM setup ensures optimum playability. Frets are checked for level, the ends are hand rolled and the frets then polished. Both fretboard and bridge are oiled and polished. If you have a preference for string height, let us know when you make your purchase. The nut will be deburred of sharp edges and nut slots cut to ensure easy action. The saddle will also be check and adjusted as required. Once again, this is your opportunity to have this guiatr set up to your requirements. Yamaha provide 12-53 gauge strings. If you would like your brand new guitar set up with a different gauge or brand of strings, let us know – you only pay for the strings!

Should you have any questions about our Pro-SCM setup, reach out and talk to us.

The APX1200II is the flagship of the APX line and offers serious bang for your buck. Stocks are strictly limited.
