Electric and thinline players can have trouble adapting to the necks, nuts, and bodies, and actions of traditional nylon-string guitars. But the Yamaha NTX1 lineup seeks to rectify this awkward transition by blending mature plugged-in classical tones with precision comfort and playability for the stage. The NTX1's slim nato wood body features a solid Sitka spruce top with an advanced undersaddle pickup system to supply satisfying plugged-in tone anywhere you play out — from the coffee shop to the club. The modern neck profile puts plenty of space between your palm and fingers to facilitate lead and chord work without cramping. You also get a slimmed-down 1-7/8" nut spacing for an easier transition between axes, along with a genuine walnut fingerboard with ultra-flat 23-5/8" radiusing to supply classic nylon-string phrasing and momentum.

Solid tonewood construction

The Yamaha NTX1 is built from premium solid tonewoods, including Sitka spruce for the top (an acoustic-instrument favorite here at Music Experience), and nato wood, a mahogany alternative with nice natural figuring. This design takes advantage of the natural resonance of the woods to create a rich and memorable playing experience. Built by master craftsmen with the best woods available, you can be assured that this Yamaha nylon-string is every bit the purebred classical guitar it takes after.

Optimized bracing system

Yamaha's team of luthiers delved deep into the science and art of bracing design when developing the NTX1. Through thoughtful experimentation and precise measurement, they identified opportunities to refine the NX bracing system, enhancing the low-end resonance of the instrument and drawing out more of the natural character of the selected tonewoods and qualities inherent to specific body shapes.

Onboard electronics

Your NTX1 is ready to plug in and play out. Its undersaddle pickup is powered by an advanced Yamaha preamp system, with onboard 3-band EQ to let you sculpt your sound from the stage. The NTX1 also features an onboard tuner, so you can leave your pedals at home..

What Yamaha Says...

The NTX1 acoustic-electric, nylon-string guitar’s modern looks and comfortable neck profile enable electric guitarists and steel-string players to easily explore the world of nylon-string playing, while strap buttons and exceptional amplified sound make it especially appealing to performing guitarists.

Nylon-String Guitars for Modern Players

The NX Series® features contemporary body styles and proprietary preamp and pickup systems developed with the needs of live performers in mind. NX Series guitars will appeal to both accomplished nylon-string players in search of superior amplified sound and electric and steel-string players seeking to explore the beauty of nylon-string sounds.


With their sleek single-cutaway body shapes, appealing wood choices, colorful rosette patterns and tasteful appointments, NX Series guitars are designed for contemporary players seeking the perfect combination of comfort and style.


As a result of precise measurement and experimentation, several refinements were made that enhance low-frequency response without compromising durability. These changes were further refined to emphasize the natural characteristics of specific tonewoods and optimize each body silhouette.

Atmosfeel™ Pickup and Preamp System

The Yamaha Atmosfeel™ pickup system provides unparalleled amplified sound even at performance-level volumes. An undersaddle piezo pickup with individual string sensors captures only the mid and low-mid frequencies (eliminating the characteristic brittleness of piezo pickups), while a unique synthetic sheet transducer captures the highs, and an internal microphone captures overall body resonance and “airiness.”

Atmosfeel™ Controls

The simple and intuitive Atmosfeel™ preamp controls let you blend the microphone sound into the premixed pickup sound. These simplified controls mean that guitarists are able to dial in the desired settings quickly and without the need to actually look at the controls.
