One of the world’s most popular electro acoustics, this Yamaha APX500III in here in Black finish, is also one of the world’s most versatile. Offering a winning combination of stylish looks, great sound and incredible value, it’s the perfect all-round guitar for any player.

Built using Nato/Okume for the back and sides with Spruce for the soundboard, the APX500III delivers a bright punchy tone perfect for cutting through the mix. The Nato/Okume neck is capped with a Rosewood fretboard fitted with 22 frets and inlaid with dot position markers.

The body is a compact size with less depth than many other acoustics. This helps the APX greatly when plugged in as feedback is reduced when playing at volume. This smaller body size also makes the APX500III a very comfortable guitar to play, either standing or sitting, with unrivaled top-fret accessibility.

Its slim neck profile has led it to become a firm favourite with electric guitarists seeking a familiar feel, and with beginners, possibly daunted by the size and bulk of a big dreadnought or jumbo.

The recently upgraded APX500III features high quality electrics. The preamp is Yamaha’s ‘System 66’, which, coupled with a discreet under saddle transducer, deliver a dynamic plugged-in sound, maximizing the resonance of the unique body shape.

Whilst suited to on-stage use, the APX500III is perfectly happy in the studio, becoming a viable recording partner, or simply as a guitar to enjoy playing at home.
