MGR/Lew Morris's review"Yamaha RGX-TT Ty Tabor"

Yamaha RGX-TT Drop6
Bought two of these - both used at two different Guitar Centers - about 3 months apart. I wanted to get a Musicman Axis guitar because I love the pickups in them, but couldn't afford to get one. I picked up the Yamaha just to check it out and I was really impressed. Very controllable feedback/gain.

This thing has extremely hot pickups that are very controllable. The neck is thin and quick. The overall design is very comfortable and the guitar is very lightweight. I like the Wilkinson bridge. The coil splitter is pretty cool too, but I haven't found a song where I want to use it yet. The finish is amazing - I have the red and the purple ones. Even if you don't like King's X (which I'm not really into), this guitar is great. I actually play metal with it and it's great for pounding out heavy riffs. You can check out my band's site at http://www.coilback.com if you want.

Don't like the fact that you have to use an allen key to take the tremolo arm off and on. Makes quick set up and break down a little annoying at the clubs. The locking Spurzel tuners work ok, but I already have one that has the locking mechanism screwed up on it. I did find that after a bit of use, the strap buttons tend to want to pop out. A little pro-bond and they are in there good now.

The construction and quality is impeccable. One of Yamaha's best guitars in my opinion.

I would suggest this guitar for anyone wanting to play a wide variety of hard rock / heavy metal. It's fast, heavy and capable of many different types of sounds. I rank it up there with the Musicman Axis, and Peavy Wolfgang.

Yamaha RGX-TT Drop6
Yamaha RGX TT (signature: Ty Tabor)
Body: Basswood amricain for the wings and center section for the Saddle
Neck: Maple vissbr /> Fingerboard: Rosewood, 350mm radius
Frets: 22
Scale Length: 648mm
Pickups: 2 humbucker Seymour Duncan Vintage Rails + 1 Duncan JB
Contrl: Slecteur 5 positions, volume contrl and Tone switch split


The handle and the ergonomics are exemplary, and the guitar is comfortable trslgre, CASC to acute poses no problem despite a heel presents well but far enough You Started .

The split is actuated via a small switch, I personally prfr a push / pull because it shows more activation of the split ... but remains a dtail.

Wilkinson vibrato is very flexible and pleasant to use, the volume knob is a little more moves away from the hand than on a Start is not bad! even when we can use it for violoning because it falls well under the fingers.

: Mechanical lock properly reflect the agreement but they're not great on my models (bought used ...), deserves a graphite nut or by bearing cons ... handle the regulation of the focus is very clever because you can tighten or dserrer the truss by a screw (allen cl) located on the LOWER portion of the handle to the 22 nd box practice !


The sounds are types strat when microphones are split, cleans and crunches fenderiens are available without any worries, when going to double the sound s'paissis and become warmer, but the position intermediates retain their typical character, this incredible sustain scratches, almost comparable to a Les Paul!

The SH4 sends the right amount of power to tackle any musical style, ct possibilities computing is quickly made: This guitar has 10 sound events slecteur thanks to its 5 positions + split .

I play on a rack + Rocktron Piranha Boss Multi any branch in a head + Peavey Triple X 4x12.


I was looking for a versatile guitar and comfortable without specific on IDE, this model sought not perfectly my expectations even if it is best to change the saddle and can be the m mechanical which are not great ...

The pros: finish, handle, sound events strat sleeve, ergonomics
The -: the split switch, plastic nut, not terrible mcas

The quality price ratio is almost unbeatable opportunity, is a guitar that can compete with models worth 3 times its current price (between 400 and 500 on the market), I think she will accompany me a good time.

This is an excellent deal!

everything has been said ... I add that the finish is really exemplary.
A luthier friend told me he would not be better so the guitar is well finished.


The neck is perfect, more advanced than that of a Fender Stratocaster USA. The handling is immediate and surprising comfort.
weight is perfect, not too heavy as the Gibson nor too light, finished back pain or on stage again.
good access to the treble.


you can play anything with this guitar.
I'm zicos professional and I sold all my other guitars so it's versatile.
it is more crystalline in a Start clean and crunch sound ... it's a real treat ...
can play Hendrix, metal, jazz ... all I say!


the best guitar I've had my hands altogether. 4 years in my possession and I do not regret a penny ...
One of the best value / price, 1200 euros at the time.
I'd buy me a second but good opportunities are rare and the guitar had only a small production, so it is valuable and virtually untraceable

Arguably, this is a killer ... a USA Stratocaster success at every point

Yamaha RGX-TT Drop6
Basswood body amricain for the wings and maple for the central section
Neck: Maple vissbr /> Fingerboard: Rosewood, 350mm radius
Frets: 22
Scale: 648mm
Pickups: 2 humbucker Seymour Duncan Vintage Rails Duncan JB humbucker + 1
Contrles: Slecteur 5 positions, volume and tonality contrles split switch for JB
Bridge: Wilkinson vibrato VS-100G
Mechanical: Sperzel locking.
Colors: Green, red and purple.

In short, that's good ct equipment.


The handle is simply gnial (my taste). Finesse allows it to you fast while keeping a good comfort. The 22 boxes are perfectly accessible from the 22nd First. In short, I've felt absolutely no gene playing it, I had the same feeling of having played this guitar for a long time already the first time I have tried .dropoff window The varnish of the handle is also very discreet.
Design level, nothing new, the line is basic, so effective. The body is very late, the guitar is lightweight and comfortable both standing than sitting. The finish is flawless, clear varnish suggesting the maple ond the center.


The sonorits are quite varied. The 2 double size to provide single round, brilliant sound, closer to the single coil sonorits, silence and more. JB JB sounds like a hoarse, warm and powerful, bourr harmonics. Mode splitt it perfectly plays the role of a simple micro, ie very good clear sound without much mediums, but noisy (buzz) in saturated.
As you can see, this guitar is very versatile and can cover a wide range of sounds.
Just make sure the height of JB rgler to avoid that microphone output level difference will face feel on Gnral volume, but it is not much.


Great guitar, well finished, well balanced, well-equipped ... Nothing to say, good job!

All t adj said. I confirm: it needs a good rglage. Good to know: mine had a wedge to block the vibrato (not possible to mount the notes) I did remove a luthier ... who told me that c'tait ralisations really a beautiful instrument for a SERIES!


From my point of view, the handle is gnial. Nothing to do with the Ibanez, but with comfort. I did polish the frets, it sounds since nickel.
It is trslgre, but a dense and its trs, moreover, quite special, is dmarquant of what has been commonly used to hearing.
Mine is green. Superb finish, with no default.


I play rock, heavy plutt, however, never be extreme. It provides sound and trs trs pro (I had the opportunity to take him in the studio, and it does fly!).
When empty, it has a nice rsonnance. You want to plug trs fast!
I jou on various amplifiers (transistor, lamps, modlisation). Pingle she released her game every time. Mention specially the three microphones and split that offer a truly staggering array regardless of the channel used (clean, crunch, distortion ...).
Personally, I like the positions intermdiaires. And for those who know something about King's X, playing with Goldilox can touch the sound of the trs prs matre Ty Tabor.
I really like the splitter, rather unusual: just a switch, not a push-pull!


I have 7 years. I possde diffrent guitars, and say it's my MODEL premium (the era I had been to a few 1000).
The report price is gnial quality, I'll buy myself a prt of OCCAZ (apparently no longer produces the Yamaha models).
I do not regret my choice at all. In addition, it is relatively rare, making it possible to be both visually mark the point of view of sound.

Indeed, the major default of this guitar is the rglage. It tends to dsaccorder if not perfectly RULES. For the guitarist who made his guitars rgler rgulirement from a luthier, this poses no problem. For the guitarist who knows nothing of rglages or who believes that a luthier do rpar the violins, it's more Gnant. In fact, I guess everything is the owner of a Ty Tabor who grinds his vibrato connatre without pulling its strings encounter problem. I think it is the main default of this guitar.


Ty Tabor DSIR a guitar that is not too heavy while maintaining the sustain of a guitar just heavy. We can say that with this guitar, Yamaha has successfully performed its Czech and given the weight of the instrument, vritable a pleasure to play. If you are not He-Man, this guitar do not crush the shoulder. She is so lgre be forgotten almost! The guitarists that play plenty of music for hours may find the happiness! Even if Ty Tabor is not really a guitarist ball!
The handle is trs end. The satin finish that seems increasingly imposed on the guitars makes a fast game and it is ncessaire to have big fingers to play!
CHAC is also acute in ais.


Ty Tabor is a guitarist rather mconnu public but possde poustoufflant a game. This is called a pany. It perptue the tradition of guitar solos that can invent infinity without ever giving the impression of rpter. It's a quality that is increasingly rare. Guitarists have attracted the ear of the stars who only play back their plan and the environment that eventually tired ...
The Ty Tabor is the image of his then guitarist. Microphones allow a wide range of sounds and can play almost anything with the MODEL. May not be jazz let's face it. Ty Tabor as pass Fender (and Zion for those who know!) Yamaha, there are the crystalline sounds of a Stratocaster. Pure happiness! The sounds are saturated and prcis pais. The crunch also sosna. It is extremely versatile guitar vritablement.
The push-pull allows for a quite a needle when you play solo and want to go to the bottom of the handle. I use it with a wha-wha. For information, Ty Tabor broke up the push-pull on her MODELS but it is a more commercial intressantqui dcuple even the sounds of Ty Tabor.


I as a professional jou on many guitars but I kept two RGXTT that I am still happy. Manufacturing so SERIES, Ty Tabor all are not alike and I have to try several before making my choice. Any fawn is essential when achte a guitar, a luthier in rgler do. The reverse shows a certain imbcillit. But some chtent a guitar without ever making rgler as if the wood did not work ...
The varnish is quite thick and the forearm is a little paste the table if you sweat or when playing in hot conditions, the light sometimes used on heating scne!
The report is qualitprix indniablement INTERESTED above that the guitar is no longer produced. It is found therefore used a very competitive price dfiant. Honntement the RGXTT suprieure is a Fender amricaine. But it's a personal opinion.
