Yamaha AEX 500 thinline jazz electro acoustic guitar – Hollow Body with a great tone This is the much sought-after Yamaha AEX500. It has a lovely rich tone. It’s light and has a very easy feel. It’s especially good for Jazz. Turn one knob and you go from Smooth to Django. There are Volume and Mix controls, with a 9v battery box at the back. Being a Yamaha, it oozes quality. 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 front of the body has some light scratches including one that is about 3cm close to the RH f-hole. You can feel it when you run your finger over it. The back has some very light scratches that are barely noticeable. The top is made from Spruce with Alder back and sides. The back of the bolt-on Maple neck is super smooth. Scale is the standard 24.75”. A very good value Yamaha AEX 500. Grab it while you can. The last one of these that I had went within a couple of days.
