(While we are working on our eCommerce shop, you can buy this in our Reverb shop at the link above)
Yamaha AES800 electric guitar, used, in good playing condition. This late '90s guitar features a unique retro look, great playability, and a killer pair of DiMarzio humbuckers with a very cool 5-way switching system. So sweet! This one shows some minor fretwear plus some normal cosmetic signs of play (see photos), but it's in very good shape overall, freshly set up and ready to rock! Does not include a case/gig bag or other accessories, but check out our shop online or get in touch directly if you'd like to add anything to your order.
More info from Bill Allston:
Some very new sounds lurk behind the nostalgic detailing.
The 800's unique wiring scheme includes a 5-way switch and extra tone pot that let you combine its pickups in varying out-of-phase combinations. This "realtime phase control" unleashes many captivating colors unattainable on most humbucker-equipped guitars. A mahogany-veneered alder body and super-tight neck joint guarantee maximum sustain.
