On the acoustics market, Yamaha is an absolute giant, a juggernaut. Their fantastic ratio of price and quality is a stuff of legends. On top of that, mildly conservative looks, which dominate the palette really hit the sweet spot of the players` wallets, thus creating unbelievable sales stats. Both the fully acoustic and acoustic-electric guitars from Yamaha qualify as market leaders in affordable and budget friendly segments of the market. For 2013, Yamaha reinforces the iconic APX series with two new guitars and the APX500II is one of them. It is a single-cut acoustic-electric with six-string construction and moderately vintage styling. Body of this model is made of nato and meranti back and sides, while the top is made of spruce. These three tonewoods create Yamaha APX series unique tone loved by hundreds of thousands of players world wide. Within the body, Yamaha installs scalloped X bracing and System 65 amplification. On the outside, the body is bound in white and finished in gloss. Bridge is a standard one and it`s made of rosewood. Nato neck is attached to the body with a dovetail joint and it`s topped with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. Tuners on the headstock are die-cast.
