[CPX Series]

The North model evokes images of frozen north. Fret markers are whale's tails rising above the water's surface, which is represented by the frets. Intricate inlay work around the soundhole features exquisite images of the midnight sun and aurora.

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.
