This is the much sought-after 1998 Yamaha AEX500 thinline jazz guitar. It has a lovely rich tone, is light and has a very smooth feel. It’s especially good for Jazz but also sounds great when played in a variety of styles.

Turn one knob and you go from Smooth to Django. There are Volume and Mix controls, with a 9v battery box at the back. The bridge Piezzo and mini humbucker don’t let Yamaha’s reputation down. The action is excellent. The Rosewood fingerboard is in good condition and the tuners work well.

The top is made from Spruce with Alder back and sides, a fixed rosewood bridge, a beautiful brass tailpiece and two F-holes.

The back of the bolt-on Maple neck is super smooth. Scale is the standard 24.75”. 

A superb and rare guitar at a really reasonable price!
