pick upAdopted SRT system which has received high evaluation from top pros including Steve Lukather. It has a pickup system that allows you to set the sound of a real acoustic guitar with sound quality as if you are recording in the studio. The pickup body is equipped with our own piezo pickup made by under-saddle type of each string independent element type which catches string vibration more accurately. By separating the saddle and the pickup element, it has become easier to adjust the chord height than before.Double action truss rodWe adopted a double action truss rod which can apply force in both forward and reverse warping directions, enabling more accurate neck adjustment. Furthermore, the neck adjustment position was changed from the conventional head side to the sound hole side. By eliminating the tunneling process at the lower rod adjustment position of the nut, the structure for transmitting the vibration energy of the string vibration received by the nut to the head and the neck more reliably, at the same time, the truss rod cover of the head part was abolished.Extra fretChange the fingerboard of APX 1200 II to a shape where part of the highest sound part protrudes into the sound hole. It is a style that was also adopted in the original APX, enabling technological performance by treble treble extra frets.Sound hole inlay of tree inlaidIn the vicinity of the sound hole of APX 1200 II, we decorated rosewood with inlaid inlaid avalon instead of conventional sound hole ring. We are realizing a design that creates a calm and luxurious feeling while making full use of the vibrations of rich surface boards unique to single plate specifications.A newly developed "SRT" system that reproduces the fluctuation of the air in the recording studioThe "SRT" system is an epoch-making system that gives an air-rich sound like a microphone recording by a leading sound engineer in the studio. This system adopts a newly developed "SRT pickup" with piezo elements mounted inside the saddle. At the same time a first-class engineer records the sound of this "SRT pickup" and the sound produced by a typical microphone in the recording studio, giving this difference to the sound of the pickup with "SRT preamplifier" to reproduce the microphone sound in the studio Is "SRT" system.Three types of microphone and two types of microphone setting sound can be selectedFrom the vintage condenser microphone that the world's favorite engineer uses, the microphone sound analyzes recording with a total of three kinds of microphones including a representative large diameter diaphragm type and small caliber diaphragm type, as well as a modern ribbon / microphone Then install it. Then you can choose "FOCUS" with the microphone set at a close distance and "WIDE" with the sound set at a few meters away. Furthermore, it is also possible to create aggressive sounds with the "BLEND" knob and the "RESONANCE" knob.Built-in A.F.R. (Auto Feedback Reduction) to suppress howlingBuilt-in "A. F.R." that automatically detects the frequency that causes howling and suppresses that frequency. Even in the case of setting where howling is likely to occur, we can respond with a margin.Body adopts all veneersUsing carefully selected materials, we adopted a single plate for both the front plate, back plate and side plate. It has become a guitar that sounds even better.
