The CPX15II series instruments are high-quality, hand crafted acoustic-electric guitars. The lineup consists of five instruments that are cosmetically themed, four for the four points of the compass, north, south, east, and west, and the fifth carrying a nautical theme. The CPX15II is the base model in the Compass series and features Yamaha's A.R.T. (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) 3-way pickup System 59, which consists of a main pickup delivering overall body tone, a sub pickup on the high end for adding overtones, and a sub pickup on the low end for adding resonance. These three pickups deliver a sound that is natural and robust. This system and the bracing design, both help to eliminate feedback.
