Two DiMarzio Q-100s produce a sound that lies between a single coil and a humbucker. Push push tone controllers split pickup coils allowing this guitar to cover a wide selection of sounds from Jazz to Blues to Rockabilly.
Archtop guitars are boundless in time and tradition. There's just something about the classic look and that electric-acoustic sound that has appealed to all genres of musicians from country and rock to rockabilly and jazz. Yamaha crafts some of the finest archtops in the world – our artists have known this secret for years. The single-cutaway AES1500 guitars are semi-hollow designs with tone and playability matched only by their classic looks. The finest cuts of maple and sycamore are used, and a choice of beautiful finishes emphasizes their stunning highlights. The DiMarzio Q-100 pickups can be split to produce humbucking warmth to P-90 bite.
The semi-thinline AES1500, a classy, comfortable archtop cutaway design, is an instrument that successfully straddles the rock, country and jazz genres. The two custom Q100 DiMarzio humbuckers possess a powerful warmth perfectly balanced by the clear, well defined cut-through of the maple body construction. Moreover, each pickup can be coil split, which in conjunction with the three-way pickup selector lends a whole new dimension of tonal versatility and subtlety.
Semi Hollowbody design with a center block located underneath the bridge to prevent feedback.
Bridge The AES1500 is equipped with a Tune-O-Matic bridge.
