CPX guitars combine the on-stage prowess of the legendary APX series with a bigger-bodied design for a louder, fuller acoustic sound and a more traditional look. All-solid wood construction and Yamaha’s proprietary SRT pickup/preamp system give CPX1200 the best of both worlds, whether you’re plugged-in or playing acoustically. With a full bass response, clear treble and open midrange ideally suited to partnering with vocals, the CPX’s sound sits perfectly in any mix. Premium appointments including mahogany binding, black button tuning keys and mother-of-pearl/paduak inlays make sure CPX1200 looks as good as it sounds.

Body depth and Bracing pattern
The medium-jumbo body CPX delivers an open, modern tone with powerful, rich low-end, smooth, delicate highs, and sweet, open mids. Non-scalloped X-type bracing ensures a strong, rich acoustic tone that remains clear and well-defined on stage.
CPX’s conventional round soundhole focuses the midrange, while controlling bass, for a direct, powerful sound.
Electric system : SRT system for CPX1200II
Using advanced Digital Signal Processing and real-world insight into audio technology and recording techniques, Yamaha have developed SRT – a pickup and preamp system capable of delivering an amazingly natural, studio-quality acoustic guitar tone.
Sounds that were, until now, only attainable by professional recording engineers using expensive vintage microphones in world-class acoustic spaces are now easily recreated by any player, on stage or in the studio. SRT creates a faithful reproduction of the elements outside of an acoustic guitar that make up a great guitar sound – the subtle ambience of the real space between instrument and microphone, the characteristic EQ voicing of a great sounding vintage mic, the different resonances captured when you move a mic around a guitar. And because SRT uses your guitar's natural tone as a basis for this process, the result is phenomenally realistic and full of the acoustic character of your guitar.
