New York, I’d do some seeeerious shopping! Would love to take the SLR to really capture the moment too. :)
So you have got £300 burning a hole in your pocket and you know that the only logical thing to do with that money would be to buy another guitar, right? Right! We all know that every guitarist needs a decent quality compact and bijou piece to have to hand when a killer riff springs to mind. ‘Where are you going with this?’ I hear you ask… Well let us introduce to you the small bodied, gorgeous gift that Yamaha have so kindly shared with us. They claim that their APX500 “offers fantastic tone at a reasonable price”. This becomes more intriguing when you shop around. We found this best selling electro-acoustic for just £189. That’s over a hundred sheets cheaper than the recommended retail price!
Compared to most electro-acoustics on the market the APX500 is one of the most compact. The smaller body makes it a great choice for electric players who need an acoustic in their arsenal, but do not want to wrestle with a full-bodied dreadnought guitar. Or if you’re all of 5’2 like me it’s just a necessity to have a guitar you can actually get your arm around!
Other good bits? A quality onboard preamp with a built-in tuner, which is an absolute God-send when you jump on stage, notice the gig bag hasn’t been kind to your machineheads and you have forgotten the damn tuner! What an absolute lifesaver.
Negatives? The APX500’s small body means it cannot quite compete with the acoustic tones of the bigger guitars on the market. But no worries, this little fella really starts to make sense when you plug him in. There is a huge range of tones available from the guitar’s three-band EQ, and the guitar’s compact size also means that swapping between the Yamaha APX500 and your electric will not seem like too much of a stretch. The slim neck helps too. Again, if you’re like me and have small hands, the neck is perfect to move around on, riffage just seems a doddle!
So it’s easy to see why the Yamaha APX500 is such a big seller. At £299 it is well worth checking out; at under £200 it’s a stone bargain. Okay, it’s not an all rounder like a good old Washburn WD32SCE but if you intend to plug your acoustic into an amp the majority of the time, the APX500 deserves to be on your must try list.
Pro: Good playability, amplified tone.
Con: Not the best acoustic tone available.
Hi there and welcome to my blog!
My plan is to write about whatever comes to mind. I have no particular avenue I wish to take with this, so where my heart takes me seems like the most sensible idea.
I hope you enjoy your time here, drop a little message and say hello! :)
