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. CPX1000 matches hand-selected tonewood construction, real wood inlays and the incredible SRT pickup system to give you the perfect partner whether you’re on-stage or in the studio, mic’d or DI’d.

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 CPX1000
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.
