The NTX models use the 23-year-old APX body style, with its long upper shoulder and deep, rounded cutaway that gives easy access to pretty much the whole of the fingerboard. In APX-style, the neck joins the body at the 14th fret, with a flat-fronted straight heel that, on the treble side, flows into the cutaway. Reflecting its contemporary standing, we get more steelstring features, such as a cambered fingerboard and narrower neck. The broad body, with its pulled-in waist, is thinner in depth than the NCX models and has a minimum rim depth of 80mm by the heel. We also get an oval soundhole with a very tasteful inlaid wood rosette design the same across all the NX models of mahogany and padauk with four abalone stringers.
