The specially designed electronics featured in the Yamaha CPX700II really put it in its own league of electro acoustic excellence. It comes loaded with a System 64 1-Way A.R.T. preamp. The A.R.T. stands for "acoustic resonance transducer". A unique technology from Yamaha, A.R.T. helps the pickup to respond superbly well to different playing actions. So unlike with your regular piezo pickup you'd get in a standard electro acoustic, the System 64 preamp is designed to eliminate the distortion that can often come with quickly changing up your playing style to one that features a heavier attack.
This all means you get sparkling, pure acoustic tone that won't be tainted or fall foul of noise interference - even when you really want to play with dynamism. The System 64 still does everything you'd expect from an electro acoustic pickup, too. Communicating your acoustic's voice clearly and naturally, you'll always benefit from full, untarnished tone.
You certainly won't be limited in what you can play when you're armed with this amazing electro acoustic. That's because it features a solid spruce top. A particularly versatile tonewood, solid spruce is renowned for the huge range it can give to your music. So you can enjoy full lows, a clear midrange, and super-sharp highs in equal measure. Plus, solid tonewoods open up more as they age, meaning the more you play this wonderful guitar, the better and fuller it will sound. It's a revelation.
...because you really won't want to stop when you experience just how smooth, fluid, and effortless the Yamaha CPX700II's playability is. It's got a classic rosewood fingerboard. Super-smooth, this will allow your fingers to elegantly dance from fret to fret with total ease. It also adds a distinctive warmth to every note you play. You won't face any restrictions when you want to hit the high notes either. The body's cutaway gives you complete access to the top of the scale, which means you won't have to awkwardly bridge your hand over the neck joint to play the higher frets. This genuinely is a stunning playing experience.
