What Reidys say...
The APX 700 II is the latest version of a very popular guitar. The APX
shape is extremely comfortable with a narrow slim body ideal for
electric guitar players and smaller musicians. The slim fast neck is
very comfortable and the cool cutaway offers great upper neck fret
access. The 700 has a solid spruce top for great acoustic tone, the
compact body gives you a strong punchy upper mid that sits well in the
mix and will cut through when you need it.
The guitar sounds great unplugged with a bright, articulate tone but
really shines when plugged in! The APX700 II has the A.R.T. (Acoustic
Resonance Technology) pickup and System 56 preamp that gives you a warm
woody tone that sounds like a much larger instrument and has a built in
tunes that mutes the output when in use. The APX is available in a wide
range of cool finishes so the guitar looks as cool as it sounds!

What Yamaha say...
The 700 series guitars feature styling and specification driven by the
1000-series guitars but with the exclusive ART pickup system. Designed
to capture the guitar's full body resonance,
ART's ability to faithfully recreate natural tone and dynamics means
that the subtle differences between APX and CPX guitars are perfectly
recreated, allowing you to pick the guitar that suits
your style and know that character will always shine through.
12-string versions of the APX and CPX700II are available, as is a
left-hand version of the APX700II.
APX's thin-line body 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.
