Gearank Recommendation

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.

Overview

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.

If you're looking for a comfortable and compact couch guitar that is equally at home on stage, then check out the Yamaha APXT2EW.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Acoustic Electric Guitars.
