The APXT2EW appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic-Electric Guitars Under $300 from April 2020 until April 2021 when it was out-ranked by higher rated models.
The Yamaha APXT2EW is a 3/4 scale version of their popular APX500 acoustic-electric guitar.
And for the price, this model features exotic tonewoods that include mango veneer over meranti wood for the top, and meranti for the back and sides.
Being a 3/4 size guitar makes this ideal for younger players, or for experienced ones who want a portable acoustic with built-in electronics for use on stage.
Speaking of electronics, this guitar comes with an ART-based preamp and System 68 contact pickup.
It also features a built-in tuner within the preamp controls.
Easy playability is its main strength, but it's also liked for its good amplified sound.
