The APX600 Natural features a slim and shallow body design, which makes it comfortable to hold and play. The body is constructed using a combination of tonewoods. The top is made of spruce, known for its balanced tonal qualities, while the back and sides are made of nato or mahogany, depending on the specific version. The body shape and construction contribute to a focused sound with good projection.
The APX600 Natural is equipped with Yamaha’s proprietary electronics system. It typically includes an under-saddle piezo pickup and a preamp with controls for volume, tone, and sometimes a built-in tuner. The electronics allow you to amplify the guitar’s sound when connected to an amplifier or PA system.
The neck of the APX600 Natural is usually made of nato or mahogany, offering a comfortable profile for easy playability. The fingerboard is typically made of rosewood, providing a smooth surface for fretting and playing.
