Yamaha CPX700II electro acoustic guitar
The new 700 series guitars feature Yamaha's ART pickup system. Designed to capture the guitar’s full body resonance, ART’s ability to faithfully recreate natural tone and dynamics means that the subtle differences between APX and CPX guitars are perfectly recreated.
Yamaha electric acoustic guitars have consistently used piezo pickups, although these tended to overreact to changes in attack, which in turn caused distortion. To oevrcome this, the new pickup was designed with a multilayer structure consisting of six layers of different materials that dampens excessive vibration from the topboard while picking up small resonances to achieve ideal sensitivity and outstanding dynamic balance. Also, because the pickup is fitted directly beneath the topboard, it functions as a transducer attached to the body.
System 64 is an original preamp system newly designed and developed by Yamaha's guitar development team. The 1-way system incorporates two contact pickups mounted inside of the body underneath the saddle.
- Solid Spruce top
- Nato back and sides
- Nato neck
- Rosewood fingerboard
- Die-cast chrome tuners
- System 64 1-way A.R.T. preamp
- Choice of colour finishes
WHY ARE THERE TWO PRICES?
The prices reflect the level of service we can offer depending on how you buy from us:
When you buy online
If you click-and-buy a guitar from our website, we will offer what every other mail-order company does – boxed warehouse stock sent by courier which has passed the manufacturer’s quality control and is covered under their warranty. You can find out more about warranties and returns on the Delivery page.
When you buy in-store
Being made from natural materials, every guitar is different. Nothing beats trying a range of models, including the exact guitar you intend to purchase so you know its right for you.
Before we sell a guitar, we carry out a 16 point inspection, making skilled observations and adjustments to ensure it sounds its best, plays easily and is finished to a high standard. This often picks up on things that the factory’s quality control missed and we return up to 20% of our shop stock because it fails to meet our standards.
To ensure you get the most out of your new guitar and to keep it in top condition, we also include our FREE accessories and service package worth over £185. This includes important extras such as a carry case, digital tuner, spare strings, strap and plectrums so you’re ‘ready to play’, as well as a FREE quarterly service, where we inspect and adjust your guitar and offer free labour if you want a restring. After 12 months we offer a full service with free strings, and the opportunity to extend your service plan at a reduced rate.
Add to this the other facilities we offer, including finance options, part exchanges and a loan instrument if yours is in for repair, buying in-store definitely gives the best value for money.
