The AES 1500 a classic archtop hollowbody guitar design and matches it with custom electronics to create a guitar ready for everything from the cleanest of jazz rhythms to the dirtiest of rock leads.
A combination of traditional maple back and sides/sycamore top construction and a stop-tail bridge with high-power Dimarzio pickups and Yamaha’s ultra-versatile switching system means that this guitar is as versatile as it is classy.
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.
What looks like a full acoustic guitar is actually a semi-hollow design with a centre block located underneath the bridge to prevent feedback.
The AES1500 is equipped with a Tune-O-Matic bridge.
