Yamaha AEX-1500

.After I heard this guitar on youtube and having read the rave reviews, I searched for a few years but could not find one in my home country. Finally I bought this one from an American guitar shop who shipped it to me. It was in perfect shape and it has become one of my favourite guitars. With a balanced mix of the piezo pickup and the humbucker on an AER acoustic amplifier the live sound is really acoustic. The highs come from the piezo, while the humbucker gives some body to the strum sound. For single string soloing, the humbucker gives a decent jazz tone, not overly fat, but with enough body.
