The Sand Burst finish is an awesome combination of a natural finish and a burst. If you want the best of both worlds and a stunning looking guitar, this is the finish you need.
The CPX700II also boasts an exclusive ART Preamp system so you can plug in to any amp or PA and craft your tone to your desire: get heard above all the others with the sound you want
Yamaha CPX700 Guitarist Magazine Review
"Acoustically, CPXs aren't necessarily the punchiest small jumbos around, and this one's a touch light on low-end grunt and richness for its size. But their biggest asset is a precisely balanced timbre, accompanied by a sustaining, resonant follow-through. The CPX700II ably fulfils this brief."
"Thanks again to an excellent set-up, the grip is enjoyably slick"
"Pros: Looks; Neck; General Competence. Cons: Getting the best out of ART needs a little work; Non-muting tuner."
"Verdict: This handsome mini-jumbo ticks nearly all the right boxes."
Jim Chapman - Guitarist Magazine
Here's what Yamaha say about the CPX700II guitars
With an exclusive Medium-jumbo body, CPX guitars boast powerful, rich bass combined with smooth, delicate highs and sweet mid-range for an open, modern voice. Non-scalloped X-type bracing ensures a powerful yet controlled tone that allows the guitar to deliver strong, rich acoustic sounds while still remaining clear and usable on-stage.
The 700 series guitars feature styling and specification driven by the 1000-series guitars but with the exclusive ART pickup system. Designed to capture the guitar’s full body resonance, ART’s ability to faithfully recreate natural tone and dynamics means that the subtle differences between APX and CPX guitars are perfectly recreated, allowing you to pick the guitar that suits your style and know that character will always shine through.
