NAMM 2011: Yamaha

 

Launched in 1987, Yamaha’s APX range was designed to be the ultimate performance electro-acoustic guitar – combining great on-stage tone thanks to a unique body design and the latest pickup and preamp technology with incredible on-stage comfort. Joined later by the bigger bodied CPX series, designed to give a fuller, louder unplugged tone and a different look and voice, the combined ranges have defined the benchmark for electro-acoustic for over 20 years.

NCX700

When the NX range was launched in 2009, it heralded a new era in nylon-string electro-acoustic guitars combining the most dynamic and natural sounding pickup system available with a choice of body shapes – either NTX, featuring the playability and accessibility of a steel-string acoustic guitar, with the tone of a traditional nylon-string guitar, or NCX; featuring a traditional classical guitar neck profile and body shape.

For 2011, Yamaha are launching the NCX700, making the incredible performance and traditional playability of the NCX guitars available at a more accessible price-point than ever before.
