It’s hard to name that one person who’s never played a guitar, or at least, wanted to. Hobbyists and occasional guitar players are in abundance, but those handful who are in dire need of a good acoustic guitar will certainly like what we’ve prepared.
The Yamaha APX500III Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar combines incredible comfort, easy top-fret access and a sound perfectly suited to on-stage use with bright, clear mids, balanced highs and controlled lows. Specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing allows the guitar's top to sing and maximizes the resonance of the unique body shape for a full, natural tone. With dynamics, sensitivity and clarity built into the design from day one, APX is a guitar not to be underestimated.

- New favorite guitar!!
Being only 5 feet tall, I had thought it would be difficult to find my first guitar that would be comfortable in my hands. This was the first guitar I looked at and I feel in love with the black color along with the size. Ever since I got it it has been so easy to wrap my hands around it including staying in tune. I have also bummed it into many things and it is still in perfect condition. This really encouraged me to start playing the guitar and I will hopefully will be getting an electric guitar soon.
