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.
The NTX1 acoustic-electric, nylon-string guitar’s modern looks and comfortable neck profile enable electric guitarists and steel-string players to easily explore the world of nylon-string playing, while strap buttons and exceptional amplified sound make it especially appealing to performing guitarists.
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.
Atmosfeel™ Pickup and Preamp System
The Yamaha Atmosfeel™ pickup system provides unparalleled amplified sound even at performance-level volumes. An undersaddle piezo pickup with individual string sensors captures only the mid and low-mid frequencies (eliminating the characteristic brittleness of piezo pickups), while a unique synthetic sheet transducer captures the highs, and an internal microphone captures overall body resonance and “airiness.”
