Yamaha APX500III in Black


One of the world’s best selling Electro-Acoustic Guitar, the Yamaha 500 Series is renowned for giving you the perfect balance of performance, value and dependability.

We Think:

The brand new Yamaha Mk III guitar in Black is the latest upgraded model in the favourable APX series that receives raving reviews from guitarists around the globe. The thin line body of the APX500 makes playing an incredible comfortable experience and gives you easy access to the top-frets. This body has a specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing that will enhance the dynamic qualities and resonance of the sound produced from the top to give a more full and natural tone. Housed within this body is an all new Yamaha 66 pickup system with a more powerful and dynamic tone. The 66 has a 3-band EQ and an adjustable mid-range frequency control for full manipulation of the sound. The recognisable oval sound hole thickens the lower-mid response and gives a louder, open low end. 

The other main difference between the Mk II and Mk III is the string length of the guitar. The overall string length has been changed from a 634mm on the Mk II to 650mm which is the same length as the APX700. By doing this Yamaha have increased the stability of the tuning and enhanced the feel of the guitar.

The Black version has a beautiful shimmer that really catches the eye.
