In excellent condition. This late 2000s build is made from top notch materials by the best craftsmen in the field for high end Yamaha.
It features 5mm Quilted maple top and back with a layer of ash and a layer of alder sandwiched between with stunning ebony accents and a matching headstock.
The neck is quarter sawn maple in 3 pieces with an ebony fretboard. The detail on the abalone and pearl inlays is exquisite.
The frets are steel vintage type, and are hardly worn at all.
The hardware is in gold, a brass plated and 19mm string pitch, slot saddled bridge for extra sustain and tone, with luxurious pearl keyed tuners.
Circuit wise, you have Yamaha soapbars coupled with a three band on board eq, each parameter having cut, notch and boost settings and balance and volume controls.
The fretboard radius is very flat for super smooth action and there isn't a single dead spot on it. Astounding stuff!
Condition wise it's A rank or so, there are tiny surface scratches and barely noticeable indents in a couple of spots. But otherwise it's Minty!
It weighs 5kg, but balances so well on a broad strap that it doesn't feel so heavy. The weight also factors in the focused tone of this beast too.
We are offering this with what looks like a brand new Yamaha hardcase, or if you want to save on shipping you can opt for a high grade soft case.
