Overview

The new flagship of the superb APX electro-acoustic range, the brand new APX1200 sounds phenomenal and features several new electronic features to make performing or recording even easier.

As an acoustic guitar, the APX1200 is already stunning. A solid spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides gives a warm, full bodied sound whilst the ebony fretboard and mahogany neck give fantastic playability. With aesthetic features like the GS3000-inspired abalone position markers, gold tuners with black tuning pegs and an abalone ring with mahogany binding, the APX1200 looks amazing.

But what really sets it apart from other electro-acoustics is the Studio Response Technology...

Typically, the sound from the jack output on an electro-acoustic guitar doesn't really sound like an acoustic guitar - though quite different to a solid-body electric, the typical sound from an electro-acoustic has a characteristic thinness and nasal quality; very different to the true acoustic sound.

Studio Response Technology  or SRT - the result of countless recording sessions and R&D work - puts the natural, ambient sound of an acoustic guitar back through the output socket to give you the best ever direct-out sound from an electro-acoustic guitar.

We've tried it with the brand new APX1200 and CPX1200 guitars (the only models at the time of writing to feature the technology) and we're blown away by how amazing they sound.

In the words of Guitar Manager, Fin Day-Lewis (a man who's played some of the world's greatest guitars), "They're astonishingly awesome - the best electro-acoustic guitars I've ever heard".

From Yamaha:

Yamaha’s new proprietary Studio Response Technology (SRT) brings back the natural, ambient sound of an acoustic guitar, and it does it with the signal from the output jack. Using a sound modeling technique that utilizes data obtained through extensive analysis of four acoustic elements that are missing from conventional pickup systems— string and body resonance, ambience, vintage microphone characteristics, and professional micing techniques, SRT delivers a natural, studio-quality acoustic guitar tone. The same tone that, until now, was only attainable by professional recording engineers in the world’s finest studios is now easily usable by any player, on-stage or in the studio.Using a sound modeling technique that utilizes data obtained through extensive analysis of four acoustic elements that are missing from conventional pickup systems— string and body resonance, ambience, vintage microphone characteristics, and professional micing techniques, SRT delivers a natural, studio-quality acoustic guitar tone.

A sound that guitarists have long dreamed of is now a reality. 

SRT Functions
The new SRT system lets you choose from three different high-end mic types as well as two mic positions that let you use techniques similar to those used in a recording studio. The system provides a total of six setting patterns. Click the buttons below the photos to hear the differences between various sound settings.
The system also allows mixing of pickup and mic sound elements using the BLEND knob, and control of body resonance with the RESONANCE knob to create a wide range of rich, natural sounds.
