The world’s best selling electric acoustic guitar, 500 series unveils its upgraded version.
Cosmetically stage-aggressive attitude with refined hue is totally new to the classic rock generation as well as live fanatic newcomers. Featuring upgraded pickup systems with a more powerful, dynamic tone and excellent playability.

 

Body Depth and Bracing Pattern

The medium-jumbo body CPX delivers an open, modern tone with powerful, rich low-end, smooth, delicate highs, and sweet mids. Non-scalloped X-type bracing ensures a strong, rich acoustic tone that remains clear and usable on stage.

 

CPX Soundhole: Round

CPX’s conventional round soundhole focuses the midrange, while controlling bass, for a direct, powerful sound.

 

Electric System : System 65

System 65 features an under-saddle piezo pickup developed by Yamaha. Controls include a 3-band equaliser, an adjustable mid-range frequency control, and a precision chromatic tuner for optimum sound tailoring. The system is powered by easy to obtain AA-size batteries that provide a stable power supply for improved sound quality.
