In terms of popularity, electro acoustics don't come much bigger than Yamaha's 500 Series. Having sold more than any other electro acoustic in the world Yamaha could have left this rock classic well alone. Instead they have tweaked it just a little by upgrading the pre amp to the improved System 66, added a new combination of tonewoods for the back and sides, and launched it as the Yamaha APX500III Electro Acoustic Guitar.
Delivering a pure and unmistakable presence the Yamaha APX500III Electro Acoustic Guitar utilises a solid spruce top and Nato / Okume back and sides which allows for a full tonal range through crisp mids, beautifully weighted highs and reserved lows. This is thanks mainly to the instantly recognisable APX soundhole that thickens lower-mid response and gives a dominant, open low end, despite having a thin-line body.
The APX line has comfort at the forefront whilst being practical for the best performance. The cutaway design gives access to the top-frets and the tonal range is picked up by the new and improved System 66 preamp.
The System 66 electrical pickup system features an under-saddle piezo pickup that was developed by Yamaha to respond perfectly with the dynamics of this guitar. Controls include a 3-band equalizer and adjustable mid-range frequency control to shape your tone to your exact specification, and also to eliminate any troublesome frequencies at problematic venues. A precision chromatic tuner is also built in for quick and easy setup.
