A very good sounding guitar with an excellent built-in pickup system. I've played on this guitar for 2 years or so, and it sounds exacly the same as the day I bought it. I play a lot of fingerstyle arrangement and I really enjoy a smaller body of the guitar. The cutaway is really nice shaped and it gives you more space to reach the higher frets, which I absolutely love.

The only negative thing I can say about the guitar, is that the sound is a bit low, probably because of the smaller body of the guitar. I would instead recommend CPX100, with a bigger body which will sounds much more when ypu play with it.

A great guitar!

Pebbles, 13.09.2012

Mein erster Eindruck war sehr positiv. Wertiger, edler Eindruck und beim ersten Antesten auch sehr guter und voller Klang. Vor allen Dingen in den tieferen Tonlagen überzeugt sie trotz des schmalen Korpus.
Nur mit den Saiten kam ich nicht zurecht. Erstens sind mir 12er Saiten zu hart (spiele auch noch E-Gitarre mit 10er Saiten) und zweitens wurde längeres Sliding bald recht schmerzhaft. So kamen erst mal geschliffene 11er Saiten drauf - aber die waren mir dann wieder zu "rutschig". Außerdem musste ich feststellen, dass eine Mechanik locker war. Am Ende habe ich beschlossen, die Gitarre einem Gitarrenservice zwecks Überprüfung zu geben und von diesem gleich 11er Elixir Saiten draufmachen zu lassen. Der Gitarrenservice teilte mir mit, dass die Gitarre prinzipiell in Ordnung ist, jedoch alle Mechaniken locker waren! Der Punkt mit den Mechaniken ist auch mein einziger echter Kritikpunkt, daher nur 4 Sterne bei der Verarbeitung.

Aber mit den neuen Elixir Saiten spielt sich das Teil wirklich genial. Ein absolut transparenter Sound bei komfortabler Saitenlage und gutem Feeling.
Übrigens wird die Gitarre mit einer Abdämmung für das Schallloch geliefert - dies kann hilfreich sein, wenn man über den Pickup spielt - hilft aber auch bei empfindlichen Nachbarn. Nebenbei passt die Abdämmung auch auf meine alte APX 5N ;-)

Nun noch etwas zur Elektronik: ich spiele die APX 1000 auch über einen Laney A1 Akustikverstärker. Sehr gut gelungen finde ich die drei virtuellen Mikrofone. Diese bringen der Gitarre je nach Stilrichtung der Musik eine deutlich erweiterte Klangfülle. Auch die Möglichkeit, die Position etwas näher oder weiter weg vom Korpus einzustellen finde ich sehr gut. Der EQ wirkt ziemlich direkt und deutlich.
Das Display des integrierten Tuners ist sehr hell und daher gut lesbar. Auch den Wechsel von einer 9V Batterie zu zwei AA Batterien empfinde ich als positiv." data-mt-lang="en-x-mtfrom-de" data-translated="I have a long time a concert guitar from the Yamaha APX series (APX-5N) and play very gladly on it - great sound, great playing feeling and super features. Although I had an acoustic guitar, it was never really warm with this. Now I had the desire to exchange this for a better one.

In the end I decided to give the guitars a guitar service for the purpose of review and to make this 11-string Elixir strings.
