SOLD - Yamaha AEX1500 - Japan 2004
Pickup currently unavailable
'The AEX1500 allows the player to explore new expressions in a jazz-orientated repertoire. On the one hand, its neck-mounted mini-humbucker reproduces those warm and mellow traditional archtop tones; on the other, the instrument carries a bridge-loaded piezo system for reproducing realistic amplified acoustic sounds. These two signal sources can be mixed together, offering an extensive palette of voicings and providing extensive tonal tailoring courtesy of the piezo's three-band EQ and adjustable (400Hz-2kHz) midrange.'

This Yamaha AEX1500 presents in immaculate condition, there isn't a mark on it, even the pickguard is as clean as a whistle. The sunburst finish looks a treat, this beauty really catches the eye.
The guitar is equipped with flat wound strings and sounds fantastic. The dual pickup system allows the player to create a wonderful mix in rich, warm tones. The action is low and the neck feels nice in the hand, a great playing guitar.
This is a fantastic example of a fine, Japanese-made instrument with an affordable pricetag. The perfect addition to any Jazz player's collection.
Comes with its original hardshell case.
