Yamaha NCX1 Nylon String Acoustic Electric Guitar w/Solid Sitka Spruce Top

The NX Series® features contemporary body styles and proprietary preamp and pickup systems developed with the needs of live performers in mind. NX Series guitars will appeal to both accomplished nylon-string players in search of superior amplified sound and electric and steel-string players seeking to explore the beauty of nylon-string sounds.

Renowned Yamaha craftsmanship results in instruments of exceptional playability and tone—and four models incorporate the unparalleled Atmosfeel™ pickup system, which provides consistently superb sound regardless of volume level.

With their sleek single-cutaway body shapes, appealing wood choices, colorful rosette patterns and tasteful appointments, NX Series guitars are designed for contemporary players seeking the perfect combination of comfort and style. As a result of precise measurement and experimentation, several refinements were made that enhance low-frequency response without compromising durability. These changes were further refined to emphasize the natural characteristics of specific tonewoods and optimize each body silhouette.
