  • PU for Yamaha APX T2 travel guitar?

    Hello everybody,
    I bought a Yamaha APX T2 for my wife to play on stage, as she prefers its small size. It's actually lovely to play, but the PU is terrible! I realise that nothing is going to make it sound like a full-sized guitar, but there must be a better alternative. I've got a Seagull S8 mandolin with (I think) a Baggs "Elements" built in and that sounds very full and warm (for a mandolin). Would that be a way to go, does anyone think? The guitar is to be used exclusively for live work and mostly strummy accompaniment.
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions, Jimi Limpet.

    Hey Jimi,
    Thanks for posting.

    The Element is a great way to get a big sound from a smaller guitar. It doesn't always have the most natural sound, but it sounds big and it cuts through, and is easy to hear in any playing situation.

    If you want a more natural-sounding option, the Anthem SL should also be a great option for that guitar.
