Preamp System: 64 1-way A.R.T.
The 700 series guitars feature styling and specification driven by the 1000-series guitars but with 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 :
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 : Round
CPX’s conventional round soundhole focuses the midrange, while controlling bass, for a direct, powerful sound.
Electric System : System 64 A.R.T.
System 64 features an under-saddle piezo pickup developed by Yamaha. Controls include a 3-band equalizer, 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. Yamaha Electro acoustic guitars have always used transducers with piezoelectric properties to best reproduce the sound of these instruments. The disadvantage of this type of system was the fact that the piezoelectric microphones reacted badly to attacks that can generate saturation and signal deterioration . To get the best return we had to improve this principle uptake by offering new sensors. The sensors A.R.T. based on the superposition of six layers of different materials. With vibration damping table and the capture of the drum resonance, the guitar delivers balanced sound and dynamic range even wider than before.
