Renowned Yamaha craftsmanship results in instruments of exceptional playability and tone—and four models incorporate the unparalleled Atmosfeel™ pickup system, which provides consistently superb sound regardless of volume level.

With their sleek single-cutaway body shapes, appealing wood choices, colorful rosette patterns, and tasteful appointments, NX Series guitars are designed for contemporary players seeking the perfect combination of comfort and style.

As a result of precise measurement and experimentation, several refinements were made that enhance low-frequency response without compromising durability. These changes were further refined to emphasize the natural characteristics of specific tonewoods, and optimized for each body silhouette.

The Yamaha Atmosfeel pickup system provides unparalleled amplified sound even at performance-level volumes. An undersaddle piezo pickup with individual string sensors captures only the mid and low-mid frequencies (eliminating the characteristic brittleness of piezo pickups), while a unique synthetic sheet transducer captures the highs, and an internal microphone captures overall body resonance and “airiness.”

The simple and intuitive Atmosfeel preamp controls let you blend the microphone sound into the premixed pickup sound.

These simplified controls mean that guitarists are able to dial in the desired settings quickly and without the need to actually look at the controls.
