while nickel. The best guitar I've ever had
The sounds are superbes.Je found them just a bit too soft and velvety: Custom so I mounted the microphones to the max in order to have a bit of potato and a treble booster (there are pieces of wes montgomery with a well sour). It took me 12-52 to get good bass, but as the action is very low we can hardly feel.
The neck pickup gives a warm and rounded tone perfect for jazz but also for various styles: There roundness and smoothness for jazz, the power and momentum for the truck (I play a lot in shuffle) and sustain for solo blues to BB King. It is incisive enough with the microphones mounted max. When I want a softer sound I use the push-pull for the microphone splitter and found the sweet, melodic, warm tone with slightly bent down but nice with a crystalline tone to the bottom that fits well I play funk. Of course when it splits you lose some volume, but I have a volume pedal for that.
The bridge pickup delivers a good sharp sound good loud that I play the old rock'n'roll to chuck bery. Again with the split found sounds more crystalline and which are reminiscent of a little slap my strat. So very versatile with the sounds I must say are excellent.
I've had it a month and I play one to two hours per day over so I feel good and I love her so much.
Before here I had a Gibson 335. This is supposed to be a guitar legend but it pleased me unless the yamaha that has nothing to envy or to or for his violin. I could not find my style has me on the 335. Its too comes in for my jazz, a little too soft for my blues, too rich for my funk where I prefer the sounds stratovolcano. I think splitter to the microphones when I tried this yamaha. And I found the guitar whose personality suited me.
I also had a Godin Flat Five X for a month but she really missed the potato for my taste. I tried to mount the pickups but there were extraneous sounds, and it caused problems on the volume of the piezo's on this guitar.
When I was at the store I took the opportunity to try Gibson (Lucile, 335, midtown, and others I forgot the number), ibanez artist, godin montreal and all quarters of cases there had for sale. And I tell you that this little yamaha suffer without complex comparison with much more expensive guitars. The choice is only linked to my tastes in terms of sounds.
My only regret is that yamaha is not a legendary brand that played on my idols.
