Shannon with Yamaha showed us the new nylon string NX series at NAMM 2020. There are six guitars broken down into two groups of three: the NTX and NCX lines.
The NTX is named for its a thinner body depth, which has a slimmer neck to go along with it. This is well suited for steel string players who want the sound of a nylon string guitar. It features a solid top. and onboard electronics. The NTX 1 has a classic preamp, while the NTX 3 and NTX 5 have Yamaha’s new Atmosfeel system. It’s a three-way system with two pickups and a microphone, allowing you to blend the amount of output for each. This allows the electronics to keep the same warmth at all volume levels.
The NCX, named for its “classical” body shape and size, also has three different models. It features typical nylon string guitar depth and profile, and also includes onboard electronics.
