The SRT System 63 preamp fitted to the Yamaha CPX1000 electro-acoustic guitar provides three different high-end mic types as well as mic positioning and lets you obtain more detailed sound by blending the mic sound with the piezo pickup sound and adjusting the body resonance.

Ok lets start with the China vs US build issue. Built in China and has impecable finish, no rough spots at all. Can't think that for these woods used that will get any better than this.
Good acoustically, better than the APX series which sound thin, because they are thinner bodied.
Plugged in has nice range of sounds available with on board SRT electrics.
Had mine few monthsand as settles sounding better all the time.
Only flaw is no hard case and needed action sorting as far too high out of factory, but for £25 at guitar shop why are you going to want to pay £2000more for same woods and named Taylor or Martin if you not a pro?
