The archetypal APX, the 600 series combines the outstanding comfort and perfect on-stage tone of the APX500 with

  • Thin Body and Cutaway For Excellent Playability
  • 634mm Scale Length for Enhanced Comfort
  • Narrower String Spacing Makes Stretching for Chords Easier
  • New Bracing Pattern For More Powerful Bass Response
  • Stage-focused Pickup Sound to Cut Through a Mix

Body depth and Bracing pattern

The APX’s thin-line body offers incredible comfort, top-fret access, and a sound perfect for on-stage use. Specially designed non-scalloped X-type bracing maximizes body resonance for full, natural tone.

APX Soundhole : Oval

The instantly recognizable APX soundhole thickens lower-mid response and gives a more strident, open low end. 

Electric system : Piezo pickup system for APX600

This pickup uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular, piezo pickup.
