NGD! My first acoustic - Yamaha

Hi all

I already own a Yamaha Pacifica 112v and. Gibson Les Paul Standard 50’s (I really should actually learn to play at some point haha)

But felt like I ‘needed’ to get an acoustic to complete the set so to speak.
After doing some research reading reviews etc I went up to PMT in Bristol last week and picked up this beauty Yamaha APX600 after a quick play to make sure it ‘felt right’

Only just got her back from the local shop as I wanted the action lowered, they managed to lower the low E from just over 3mm to just under 2.5 at the 12th which has a lot of difference


Congrats, Paul, beautiful guitar! Hope you have lots of fun together. Good decision on the setup too!

Congratulations Paul!!! Happy NGD!!!
She’s a very beautiful acoustic, love the shape of her bridge, it reminds me of wings - like she wants to fly into wonderful rhythms!!!


P.S. It’s time to start thinking about the next excuse… you’re going to have to justify guitar #4 somehow!!! :wink:

Happy NGD.
I have an APX 500 and it is a fine guitar, especially considering it was a 2nd hand bargain.
When I took it to a tech to lower the action he did not shave the bridge on the bottom edge due to the pickup type. Instead he reshaped the top to lower it and carved a new surface including compensation for the B string.


Ha funny you should say that, I’ve already planted the seed with the wife for another one

It certainly is an APX600, forgot to say that in the op

Congrats Paul!

Real nice score!

I read where you were getting this earlier.
So when I was down at my local music store I tried one out. Very nice guitars are a real reasonable price. Sounded real good to me too.

Ya got a real beauty there man. Have a blast making some great music with that.

So your at 3 guitars. Cool. A HSS elec., a humbucker elec. and a 6 string acoustic.
And it sounds like ya got yer wife hip to some more. Very cool. So what’s Next? May I suggest something w/p90s. :wink:

Have fun Paul with your new guitar!


Lovely guitar Paul. I bought my wife the same to learn on. However she’s set on learning to play the piano so now it’s mine. Oh dear, how sad, never mind :joy::joy:


Happy NGD Paul, lovely.

Looks fab, congrats

Happy New Guitar Day! She’s beautiful. Since you have a Les Paul and a Strat-type, maybe a Telecaster for your next guitar? Just thought I’d throw that out there, as the setup is never complete! haha

Hmmm, this one makes four, is that enough for a club?

Here is my 1993 APX 9-12, it’s currently getting some love hence the no-strings nudie shot.
Congrats on the new guitar, I hope it brings you years of joy!


How about a 335-type rather than another solid-body?


Funnily enough when i took this one in to be set up I had a play on some of the guitars in the shop and that included a few real nice Tele’s :slight_smile:
