In order to give this travel guitar a full-bodied, sturdy feel and sound, Yamaha have carefully selected certain tonewoods in the design of the APXT2EW. Spruce wood is employed for the body top to allow the guitar to resonate, and it is further complemented by the tropical tonewood which constructs the back and sides of this travel guitar. These tonewoods work well together to produce a bright, energetic acoustic timbre which sounds just as great when unplugged.
Firmly joined to the travel size body is a short scale nato neck with a satin finish and a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard sits atop of it. The neck feels ultimately comfortable to play and partners the compact body of the guitar. The cutaway in the body also allows you to play those higher notes at the upper frets with ease.
At the top of the neck is a traditional acoustic headstock with chrome covered tuning keys that uphold tuning integrity with accuracy and precision.
Although the APXT2EW is a short scale, travel size guitar, this does not mean that it will compromise on the overall sound output. Yamaha have fitted the innovative ART-based pickup system with a one-way active preamp which enables you to practise, record or even perform at full volume.
The preamp features controls for the Volume and Tone of the APXT2EW and also includes a built-in tuner so that you can ensure that each note sounds exactly as it should.
This Yamaha-fitted preamp in the APXT2EW gives this travel size guitar the overall sound output of a quality full-bodied guitar, so when you play through an amplifier you will discover its stunning acoustic timbre in its entirety.
The Yamaha APXT2EW has a sensational gloss finish and a compact build which looks and feels superb to play. If you’re a travelling musician, the Yamaha APXT2EW 3/4 Size Electro Acoustic Travel Guitar is a very worthy addition to your guitar collection and can accompany you anywhere you go. Yamaha have also included a gig bag to protect the instrument from damage and dirt, giving you confidence wherever you take it.
