Yamaha AES-1500

Like New!! With Original Hardshell Case!

We all know Yamaha quality, and this guitar is a prime example. It is a cross between a Gretsch and a Gibson ES-335 and will put either one of them to shame!! Unbelieveable sound and playability!! And........it's beautiful also!!
Do your research, read the reviews and come get this one before someone beats you to it. There are not many around for sale because once you have it, you ain't gonna let go of it!!

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.

General specifications:

Semi Hollowbody design with a center block located  underneath the bridge to prevent feedback.
