By Jeffery A. Lewis on February 22, 2011
Style Name: Spruce TopColor: Nato Back & Sides
In the Summer of 2009, Yamaha introduced their NX series of electric acoustic nylon string guitars. The NX series is divided between the NTX and NCX. NCX inherits many of the physical attributes of a traditional classical guitar with the exception of a cutaway and lower string height. The NTX has a more contemporary design to make steel string and electric guitarist feel more at home. There are four NTX models: NTX700, NTX700BL, NTX900FM, and NTX1200R. The difference between the 700, 900, and 1200 involves wood choices. The dimensions and electronics are identical for all NTX models. The 700 offers a solid spruce top with Nato back, sides, and neck.

The NTX700 is what some people are calling a crossover classical guitar. Besides the electronic pickups, what makes a crossover classical guitar is the physical characteristics of the guitar. The NTX700 has a narrower and thinner neck. The nut width is 48mm compared to 52mm for a traditional classical guitar. Most steel strings have a nut width around 42mm, so 48mm is about in the middle of a classical and steel string. The neck is thinner measured from the fretboard to the back of the neck. The thinner neck can be provided thanks to the adjustable steel truss rod. The truss rod also allows for lower action since the neck can be slightly curved to accommodate the sweep of the string vibration.

As a comparison, I measured string spacing at the nut and bridge on the NTX700 and then on my traditional classical guitar. I am measuring the distance between the 1st and 6th strings. The NTX700 has a 37mm nut string spacing and a 52mm bridge string spacing. My traditional classical has a 42.5mm nut string spacing and a 56mm bridge string spacing.

The Yamaha NTX1200R is an impressive guitar, even more impressive when you consider the price. I think that this guitar compares very favorably with the Taylor 814ce-N, which is clearly a professional quality instrument but it also retails for approximately $3K. A few caveats on the NTX1200R, the sides and back are rosewood, pretty dense wood and out of the box the guitar sounds a bit dead, the more you play it, the more it opens up and comes into its own. The stings that it ships with are just okay, would strongly suggest restringing with your favorite string of choice (I like D'Addario EXP nylon strings). Plugged in this guitar sounds great, I play mine through a Marshall AS50D with a very inexpensive ART Tube MP pre-amp (sometimes without and it still sounds great).

This is an excellent instrument. The workmanship represents near perfection. The sound is dynamic both plugged in and acoustically. The neck is fast and narrow. Great guitar for those who play steel string but want a classical sound.

Very good craftsmanship, the guitar sound is very impressive. At first I was reluctant about buying this guitar because it is kinda more on the thinline side, I really like to play unplugged and enjoy the sound of the wood. The solid spruce top gives the guitar a unique sound.

Very beautiful, smooth to play, came in perfect state and factory sealed. Everything was like I expected, if not better.

In addition, the sound of this guitar plugged in is amazing, the bass and treble control gives you the possibility to adjust the volume of the upper and lower strings, very clean sound, beautiful to hear. For those who like to play plugged all the time and in shows, it comes with a feedback reducer propper for its soundhole, a brand new battery is also included.

Nothing to complain, very satisfied with this acquisition. I very much recommend this guitar.

This guitar looks fantastic and sounds great, I love that you get a classical sound with the thinner neck so it makes it easy for me to go from this guitar to my steel string acoustic. I did have to adjust the action when it arrived which cost me $70 for a setup but this is something I would have done with really any guitar I bought.

An amazing instrument. Have had guitars for 40 years, beginning with classical and now mostly acoustic steel string. Decided it was time to add a nylon acoustic to my collection as I enjoy the rich sound. I have to admit, for the price this is an amazing guitar. The fit and finish are perfect. But even more, the tone is wondrous. It really sings. The highs are clear, the bass is solid, the action wonderful. I don't know how they mass produce such a wonderful instrument. I just love sitting with my eyes closed and listening to the rich sounds that come from this fine guitar.

It also comes with a nice gig back by the way. An added bonus.

OK, so this review is for the combination of three pieces of kit, the Yamaha NTX700 guitar, the Yamaha THR5A amp, and Thomastik-Infeld KR116 Classical Guitar Strings: Classic S Series Rope Core Set W/Nylon Tape Trebles.

As a finger picker, I was looking for an affordable guitar with a little more room on the fretboard for my fat fingers. I tried a couple of dozen guitars at a local chain store, and when the sales guy handed me the NTX700 I thought, "not a chance". Twenty minutes later i walked through the door with it. While not very loud for finger picking, the beautiful sounding pickup system makes amping it a breeze, and recording with the pickup produces a very natural sound. But Nylon string just did not have enough bite, and round wound strings squeaked like mad, highlighting my poor technique.

The Thomastik strings changed everything. See my review at: https://www.amazon.com/Thomastik-Infeld-KR116-Classical-Guitar-Strings/dp/B00162VU7I/ref=cm_rdp_product

The THR5A amp is an easy way to get a "studio" sound out of your acoustic guitar while sitting on your front porch. Fill it up with 8 rechargeable AA batteries and play for 8 hours. The amp works beautifully with the Yamaha pickup system to produce a natural sound with enrichment from the reverb, compression and chorus effects that is just a delight. A USB connection lets you record directly into your PC, and they even provide software (although I found it too complicated and use something else I had lying around).

So, what you really want to know is what they sound like. Amazon does not like links, but let's see if I can sneak one in.
