The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
As an electric guitarist in the '80s, if you wanted to play acoustic on stage there were few options available. In 1987, Yamaha made the first acoustic guitar that could be taken from a guitar rack, plugged in and played at volume, problem free; no more howling feedback, misplaced mics or dreaded extended sound checks.
Although its style has evolved, the essence of the APX remains the same. Today, it boasts a more natural look and a new non-scalloped bracing pattern for a responsive, dynamic tone. This APX600 guitar combines all the attributes that made its predecessor, the APX500, one of the world’s best-selling acoustic electric guitars, along with a few comfort and cosmetic upgrades.
The APX600’s thin-line Locally-Sourced Tonewood body in a Natural finish offers incredible comfort, top-fret access, and a sound perfect for on-stage use, and is paired with a Spruce top for a full, natural sound. The bound Locally-Sourced Tonewood neck has a 25" scale, 22 frets and a 15.75" fretboard radius. The body is highlighted by cream and black binding and the instantly recognizable APX oval soundhole, which thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low-end.
This APX600 features a unique under-saddle piezo pickup, the Yamaha proprietary SRT transducer featured in the highly-acclaimed A Series range, a natural tone and the feedback rejection and mix-friendly sound guitarists crave. 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.
