Being a Japanese electric corporation, Yamaha began to make all kinds of instruments include guitars and grew to be a brand-new star in the market . Their guitars targeted at all kinds of customers from learners to skilled musicians.An example of the quality affordable beginner acoustic guitars they supplied is Yamaha FG700S. This model has a solid spruce top and laminate sides and back with the good tone just cost you about 200 bucks.

You might feel it is a more expensive model if you hear it the first time because the tone is quite distinctive and awesome. The price of Alvarez Regent is about TWO HUNDRED bucks which is very appealing and might be the greatest affordable solid top guitar model.

Bought apx500 from ebay. new 9v battery. plug guitar into amp. no sound unless tuner button is pressed. this then cuts out after a minute or so. sounds drops out.

to me it sounds like a loose connection or solder point is completely disconnected take it to your local shop and should take them not time to look it over. unless you feel comfortable doing it yourself. do at your own risk.

How to adjust the neck to make the strings nearer to the finger boards

Two ways I'm familiar with ::

1) adjust the bridge downward (I looked at the guitar on line -- couldn't tell if it has an adjustable bridge)

2) remove the cover above the nut (where the tuning keys are) -- use a wrench to turn the nut on the rod which runs thru the neck -- it doesn't take much turning of this nut to have a big effect

With either approach, the issue with adjusting the strings closer to the finger board is that too much adjustment will cause the strings to rattle on the frets.

My cousin bought a Yamaha bass from a garage sale.Plugged it in,and no sound. Tried the knobs and nothing happened. What could be the problem? Thanks

Replace the battery. The battery is turned on when you plug in the cable, so DO NOT leave cable in when you are not using the guitar.

Use a standard MONO instrument cable NOT a stereo type.

Yamaha acoustic-electric apx-6c. Controller

LIKELY the internal battery is exhausted. On some of these you have to take the strings off to get to the battery inside. What a pain that is.

Can't figure out where the batteries go on yamaha AP500 acoustic electric guitar. I unscrewed the small little box and pulled out a bigger box with no obvious batteries in sight.

If it is an APX-500, the battery is in a holder between the neck and the tuner on the curved sides of the guitar. It should unlatch. The battery (9V) goes into the holder and is inserted and latches.
