APX1200II Electro-Acoustic Guitar

Why we love it…

When you listen to a great acoustic guitar in person, you hear the warm, rich tone created by the strings and body working together. At the same time, you hear all the dynamics, detail and nuances of the guitarist's performance. It can be mesmorising, both for player and listener.

In a well equipped recording studio, that sound is carefully captured by high-performance microphones but on stage, it's rarely possible to do the same to amplify the guitar. Electro-acoustic guitars offer convenience of a direct connection to a PA system or guitar amp but the amplified sound from many electro-acoustic guitars leaves much to be desired - sounding harsh rather than warm, with little or no subtlety or detail.

Our Studio Response Technology changes that. Built into our APX1200 II, 'SRT' captures the sound and, in realtime, models how it would sound if mic'd up in a commercial recording studio, complete with warmth, detail and nuance - and sends that sound to the PA or guitar amp. It's extraordinary.

Overview

The APX1200 Mk II is the flagship of our best-selling APX Series of electro-acoustic guitars. With its all-solid wood construction,the look, feel and sound of the APX1200 II is the result of 65 years spent continually developing our designs and craftsmanship.

Thanks to the its ground-breaking SRT (Studio Response Technology) pickup and preamp, the APX1200 II achieves what electric acoustic guitar makers have long pursued - a pure, natural, dynamic tone.
