APX series, highly evaluated for its playability on stage, is now available with all solid with SRT system. In addition to the quick response and attack of APX, solid Rosewood of side and back gives rich sustain. New cosmetics, such as Mahogany wood binding, black button on tuning machine, and the position marks are abalone/ MOP arrows seen in SG3000... it is simple, but gives us high-end appearance. APX1200 is available in Natural and Translucent Black.
The new SRT system lets you choose from three different high-end mic types as well as two mic positions that let you use techniques similar to those used in a recording studio. The system provides a total of six setting patterns.
The system also allows mixing of pickup and mic sound elements using the BLEND knob, and control of body resonance with the RESONANCE knob to create a wide range of rich, natural sounds.

Secret to Good Sound
The SRT system is powered by two AA batteries instead of the more common PP3. Using an internal circuit to boost the batteries voltage to 11V reduces distortion, even when the batteries are low, and creates a wider dynamic range. With traditional 9V designs, the voltage soon drops to 8V and gradually decreases from there (average operating voltage in a PP3 system is 7.5V). This lower voltage produces disadvantages such as unstable operation and distortion – especially noticeable with SRT’s studio quality tone. SRT’s power circuitry provides stable operation nearly up to the time battery power is depleted, giving you better tone for longer.
