Click any picture for supersize view!

An awesome archtop built with incredible Japanese quality! An improved and updated take on classic rockabilly archtops of the 50s. The AES-1500 gives you great vintage tone at a great price. The hollow body is made of Sycamore and maple for great tone. Check out the gorgeous figuring! The 24.75 inch scale maple/mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Dual Dimarzio Q-100 humbuckers deliver a variety of tones. An upgraded  Bigsby B-7 vibrato with tension bar, roller bridge and sealed tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is a gorgeous transparent orange and set off by gold hardware. A great looking, sounding and performing guitar!

This Yamaha plays and sounds great. The neck is straight, the action is good and the frets are fine. The pickups deliver a variety of tones. Everything works as it should. This is a solid used instrument in EX- condition. It has seen some moderate use and shows some normal wear. It shows light to moderate pick and clearcoat scratches and moderate indents and dings. Some fading of the gold hardware. Normal wear and tear for a player. Comes in a very cool brown Yamaha hardshell case.

This is a great tribute to many classic vintage archtops without the problems or the price. Great Japanese quality throughout. Hard to find, I'm not even sure if you can still get this model new. Here's your chance to grab one.
