APX-96 LTD edition

APX series guitars are designed with a focus on playability. Their thin bodies and cutaways that provide greater access to the upper frets, offer smoother switching between electric and acoustic instruments.

Unread post by TBeam » Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:58 am

Hello
I have a guitar Yamaha APX-96 limited edition (10 years aniversery) and I like to know a little bit more of it. Have have googled it and I cant find much information.

- What model it is built on? (some say APX9 and I also heard APX7)
- What kind of mic and electronics/preamp is included in this model?
- What other preamps/electronics is compatible with my model?
- Do anyone knows how big edition it was built of APX-96?

Here are a link to one like mine for sale

Hi Tobbe and welcome to yamahamusicians.com :)

Only things I could find so far are that there were 300 made in total and it is indeed based on the APX9.

They normally put these things out in small runs for special occasions. I suppose the thing is to find out what number out of that 300 your particular guitar is. Does it have a serial number?

Hejsan Tobbe , welcome to the forum and the string section. :D

As you mentioned, there isn't a lot of info regarding your Yamaha APX-96 :(

Look through the soundhole up against the truss rod, the number should be there. :wink:

Here's a chart to decode the serial number: http://faq.yamaha.com/us/en/article/mus ... /4849/4094
