This 920 is the top of the line of the AES series by Yamaha. This particular one is a shining example of this revered model. She has been cherished by her previous owner & has almost zero signs of playwear, she even has the protective films on the rear cavity covers. Her quilted maple cap is stunning & with her action, together with the lovely neck profile, that is not too whippy or too thick, makes for a players dream guitar.

This Yamaha Custom-Shop was handmade in Yamaha’s small build guitar shop in Japan.  This Gibson Les Paul style guitar was also the guitar model used by the virtuoso guitarist, Buckethead, pre-Gibson.  The scale is actually the same as a Gibson Les Paul at 24.75″.  The solid maple top also has a quilted pattern in it.  Note the handcrafted fretwork on the fingerboard.  The mother-of-pearl dots are inlaid into mother-of-pearl rings.  The pickups are American-made Seymour Duncan ’59s which are typically an expensive upgrade.  This model was only made in 2005 and there is a very limited number available that rarely come up for sale.

he AES920 blends the vintage with the modern, thanks to its solid Maple body, African Mahogany top and quilted Maple body veneer. The set-in, 24 ¾-in. scale African Mahogany neck features Abalone dot inlays and white position markers. A Yamaha original bridge and AES tailpiece, nickel hardware, die-cast tuners and the choice of Natural or warm Honeyburst top finishes complete the look. The electronics – Duncan ’59® neck and bridge pickups with nickel-plated covers and separate volume controls, plus master tone and 3-way EQ switch – yield an endless selection of blends for a true custom sound.
