In terms of popularity electro acoustics don't come much bigger than the 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 65 and launched it as the Yamaha APX500II Electro Acoustic.
Known for it's aggressive stage-presence the Yamaha APX500II expresses a full tonal range through crisp mids, beautifully weighted highs and reserved lows. The resonance of the guitar's unique body shape is accentuated by the non-scalloped X-type bracing, giving the top real clarity.
The thin-line body featured in the APX line is designed for comfort, whilst the cutaway design gives access to the top-frets and the tonal range is picked up by the new System 65 preamp. The Yamaha APX500II is a time-tested, highly playable classic, relied on by many a performing guitarist.
Available in a variety of different finish options, you're sure to find a Yamaha APX500II to whet you're appetite.

This was my first steel string guitar that I bought to expand my musical learning & enjoyment. It's ticked both boxes farther than I expected. Due to the slim-line body it's a very comfortable guitar to hold & play and it also has pretty good action. It looks great and sounds tremendous for the price. I think you'll be impressed by its tone that is improving over time. Don't be fooled by the size, this baby sounds brilliant unplugged, which is how I play mine all the time. It moves a lot of air thanks to Yamaha's structural design and oval sound hole. The build-quality is better that you might expect for a guitar under £300 but overall what I feel you get for your money is a LOT of guitar. I can see why it's the world's bestseller.
Enjoy. I know I do every day!
