Yamaha's 700 range of electro-acoustic guitars feature styling and specifications pioneered by the ground-breaking 1000-Series models but with the addition of 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.
CPX Body Depth : 95 -115mm ( 3 3/4"- 4 1/2" )
With an exclusive Medium-jumbo body, CPX guitars boast powerful, rich bass combined with smooth, delicate highs and sweet mid-range for an open, modern voice. Non-scalloped X-type bracing ensures a powerful yet controlled tone that allows the guitar to deliver strong, rich acoustic sounds while still remaining clear and usable on-stage.
CPX Soundhole :
RoundCPX's conventional round soundhole focuses the midrange, while controlling bass, for a direct, powerful sound.
ART Pickup System A.R.T. (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) technology)
Unique multilayer structure achieves optimum dynamic balance.Yamaha electric acoustic guitars have consistently used piezo pickups to reproduce the pure sounds of the acoustic guitar. But piezo pickups tended to overreact to changes in attack, which in turn caused distortion.To achieve ideal playability, we had to improve the way that these dynamics were controlled.To provide a solution to this issue, the new pickup was designed with a multilayer structure consisting of six layers of different materials.This dampens excessive vibration from the topboard while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance. Also, because the pickup is fitted directly beneath the topboard, it functions as a transducer attached to the body.
