Yamaha CPX1200II acoustic-electric guitar features an SRT pickup system, MOP/Paddock position marks, and a medium jumbo cutaway body. Yamaha CPX1200II resonates even deeper with Rosewood and when combined with SRT, its real acoustic sound, and playability are irresistible for both studios and stages. The Mahogany wood binding and black button on the tuning machine is applied to its body and newly designed MOP/Paddock position marks are another cosmetic feature of this model. CPX1200 is available in Translucent Black and Vintage Sunburst.
The medium-jumbo body CPX delivers an open, modern tone with powerful, rich low-end, smooth, delicate highs, and sweet mids. Non-scalloped X-type bracing ensures a strong, rich acoustic tone that remains clear and usable on stage.
CPX Soundhole: Round
CPX’s conventional round soundhole focuses the midrange, while controlling bass, for a direct, powerful sound.
Electric system: SRT system for CPX1200II and CPX1000
Using advanced Digital Signal Processing and real-world insight into audio technology and recording techniques, Yamaha has 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 does not artificially create a guitar tone, rather it creates a faithful reproduction of the other elements 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.
