Good guitar for the money

Initially, out of the box, the Yamaha APX500II has that typical 'box fresh' smell that you'd expect - all woody and lacquery. It's not a top end guitar, so hopefully you're not going to expect the best feeling and looking tonewoods available, but the quality looks reassuringly good at this point, albeit a little too shiny and 'plasticy' for my liking - but that's just a preference.

It's fitted with Elixir strings which feel great on the slimline neck, which for me is one of the best features of the guitar. If you're after an acoustic with a feel more like an electric then this is pretty good - but after a while I've found myself choosing thinner guage strings to try to keep this feel. I think a good setup will help restore this as, especially higher up the neck, it can be a little hard work.

The overall feel is great if you prefer a smaller sized guitar. The cutaway really helps, but of course you'll not have the same acoustic volume as a dreadnought or fuller sized bodied guitar. Bear in mind also that the head end is weightier than the body, so depending how you set yourself up to play you may find that you have to keep re-adjusting your stance or seating position. It's not such a problem when stood up playing with a strap.

The head and tuners seem very good and it's easy to string up and tune up quickly and stays in tune very well.

Plugged in, it performs - fine. I've read reviews that rave about its performance so maybe I need a little more time to find a sweet spot, but I find the tone a little dead and woody. This could be perfect for some styles however, but for me I would like to have the variety of a really clear bright sound and everything else in between as well. The electronic tuner is clear and precise - very easy to use.

In general, I like this guitar. The pros are the feel of the neck, comfort of the size and the overall build quality. The cons are the lack of tonal 'presence' and the top heavy head. On a budget, I'd consider buying it again, but try lots of other possibilities too. If you can afford more, there are certainly better options out there.

These guitars are excellent value for the price I think unbeatable, a bit of work on the saddle and the action is now
ideal for my style , intonation spot-on, electrics very good
the perfect acoustic for the player who wants a guitar
close to an electric in proportions .it shines when plugged in .
