Yamaha CPX8-12
Solid spruce, rosewood back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge (I'm not
that this is the case for all models). On this aspect of the key and the bridge can
be misleading because it is not of African ebony, which alone is truly black.
dores mechanical (high accuracy).
Very nice finish.


Channel rather late for a twelve-string (completed tree trunks), the game is quite nice
(Always for a twelve-string, this type of instrument is still a device of torture over the term, except for some models can be in taylor example (but not for the same price)), then access cutaway Easy to acute.
one small problem, the handle is not very large, making the game a little more complicated fingerstyle and a lot of precision right hand, but with work it can be done.


She has a very beautiful sound quite versatile, as most cpx, it sounds as good in fingerstyle as mediator.
The pre-amplification system is a two-way, electret microphone into the sound hole (whose position is adjustable), and a piezo under the bridge that can be used alone or mixed in a microwave, parameters separately. The settings are: bass, treble, parametric medium, plus a phase inverter.
I used it on stage with just a Carlsbro amp and no external effect, apart from the reverb of the amp, and I can tell you that it works, the twelve strings over this system give a lot of preamp breadth and power.


I use it for just over two years.
The most: the finish, the handle end and pleasant for a twelve string, versatility, sound as electro acoustics.
Cons: none, apart from the width of the handle which gives less space to the right hand fingers to play (my favorite style (fingerpicking and fingerstyle in general)), but this is so important that a , it takes a little more work, that's all.
qualitprix the report is very good
I do not do it again this choice may be, but it's personal (just a problem of style), otherwise it is an excellent instrument.
