Product Description

Inspired by the oceans of the world, the CPX15A is the first in a line of thematically designed acoustic electrics. Handcrafted by Yamaha's master luthiers using quality woods and materials, the entire Compass Series features Solid Spruce tops, Ebony fingerboards, and a unique preamp system that includes a piezo pickup and condenser microphone. The Compass Series is an ideal place to launch your acoustic journey.

Features:
Nautical Design

Solid Spruce Top

Rosewood Back and Sides

Mahogany Neck with Ebony Fingerboard

Gold Tuners

System 45 Preamp w/ Piezo Pick-up + Microphone

Natural Finish

Limited Lifetime Warranty

The excellent 2-way piezo/mic system -- the mic mounted in fixed position underneath the bridge plate -- allows both signals to be blended for the ultimate in acoustic-like realism, while the 4-band EQ includes presence for added sparkle and a variable midrange (300Hz - 2kHz) for extended tonal adjustment. The supplied soundhole cover helps prevent feedback in high-volume situations.

CPX15 Controls
The CPX15 features a 2-way pickup system consisting of a piezo pickup mounted in the bridge and a condenser microphone attached to a gooseneck mounted inside the body. While the piezo system reproduces string vibration, the microphone is used to pickup the guitar`s acoustic tone produced within the body.

The CPX15's preamp incorporates a Blend Control to mix Ribbon Transducer pickup's tight electric-acoustic sound with that of the condenser microphone`s rich and warm acoustic tone. The 4-band equalizer equipped with an Adjustable Midrange Frequency (AMF) control offers precise sound tailoring of the overall tone.

Bracing
Bracing is a critical factor in the overall tone produced by the guitar. The Compass series`s use of an X bracing design with placement closer to the sound hole affording greater bass response from the instrument.

Sound Hole Cover
The sound Hole cover supplied with the CPX15 prevents feedback from the condenser microphone when performing live.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Envy of mid-level Martin and Taylor owners"
Sound: I play with friends that own mid-level Martins and Taylors. They are envious of the tome and the volume. Feature: Great sound system -- sounds crisp through the amp. Nice control of mix between mic and piezo pickups. Quality: Absolutely beautiful inlaid wood work around the soundhole and head. The only problem I have encountered was the output jack coming loose. Value: Great tone, high quality, aesthetically beautiful compared to the low-end Taylors and Martins available in the same price range. Manufacturer Support: Haven't required company support. The Wow Factor: Absolutely beautifully designed cutaway. Nautical theme, inlaid wood artwork makes it especially attention-grabbing. Overall: No plans to change -- ever. If it were lost, damaged, or stolen I would search for another one, but only after an appropriate grieving period!

"Buy one, you won't be dissappointed, they are harder to find and well worth looking for!!"
Sound: Whenever I plug it in and play a concert, the sound guys say they would rather this axe play over a taylor anyday. i wouldn't disagree! Feature: mad sweet bridge adjuster Quality: i'm telling you, you will not be disappointed, especially with the price compared to others!! this is a must buy! Value: will never be beat!! Manufacturer Support: haven't had any problems, while shooting a music video, guitar straped on behind me, i dropped it on the head and it went facedown on a rock, needless to say i didn't have to do anything, still works perfect!! very well built! The Wow Factor: different look than any other guitar, great body shape, love the clear picguard, and the design is unique only to yamaha! Overall: i will never need to buy another guitar!!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
