This top-of-the-line model is designed and crafted drawing on the vast knowledge, craftsmanship and expertise acquired from over 40 years of hand crafting classical Spanish guitars. Its stunning nylon tone is faithfully reproduced with all its beauty and depth through an advanced electronics and pickup system designed by Yamaha.
Solid Hokkaido spruce top
Solid flamed maple back/sides
Also known as "curly maple", flamed maple produces a crisp, clear, less resonant tone that cuts through well making it great for lead playing.
African mahogany neck
A.R.T. 2way system
Acoustic Resonance Transducer Pickup/Preamp System 61 is designed especially for the NX Series, to faithfully reproduce the tone and dynamics of nylon strings. The A.R.T. system utilizes a multilayer damper in order to absorb excessive vibrations and control feedback. System 61 consists of two pickups mounted on the high and low sides of the guitar, each with its own control to provide the NX Series guitars with flexible tone tailoring. The preamp offers individual volume control for both pickups, delivering a totally natural sound with robust lows and clear highs. A built-in 3-band EQ offers powerful sound shaping while an on-board tuner provides excellent usability during performance.
Classical, Flamenco, Latin or Pop, whatever your style, these guitars play and sound great thanks to a traditional design ready to accommodate a wide range of playing styles.
12th Fret Neck Joint
The neck shape is identical to that on a classical guitar. The fingerboard measures 52mm at the nut and 62mm at the joint.
Standard 94-100mm body depth and round sound hole produce rich tone.
Acoustic Resonance Enhancement
A.R.E. is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise control of temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, the molecular properties of the wood can be manipulated into a more acoustically ideal condition, similar to the molecular characteristics of woods in instruments that have been played for years. It produces a sharper tone while simultaneously controlling dissonance in the high range.
