The Yamaha APX500II electro-acoustic's thin-line body combines comfort, top-fret access and a sound suited to on-stage use with bright, clear mids, balanced highs and controlled lows. Specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing allows the APX500II guitar's top to sing and maximizes the resonance of the unique body shape for a full, natural tone.

With a confortable thin 3-1/8 to 3-9/16 inch body depth and fast neck, the transition from an electric guitar to the Yamaha APX500II electro-acoustic could not be easier.
