New Guitar Day! Yamaha Image Deluxe

Unread post by Asmikace » Sat Dec 08, 2018 1:39 pm

I wasn't expecting this morning to buy a guitar but there was a Yamaha Image Deluxe on the JPA that was too good for the price.
I bid twice and surprisingly won it. I can't wait to see why people rave for them.

Looks great not a fan of locking bridges myself but for those who are a good addition to the collection. Let us know what you think when it arrives

Will be interested to hear more about this guitar when it turns up. Trem looks too complex for me, I prefer things nice and simple but the rest of the guitar looks great :)

H upcoming NGD. :D

Even though I haven't had my hands on one, I'll still recommend it. :dance:

Most owners praise their Image guitars as divine beings, NO ONE ever said they suck.

I look forward to hear your opinion.

The reason why i jumped is the tremolo parts look like they are all there. I dont have to spend the time and money on replacements parts. I still have to order my tremolo parts for my se 1207.

Just got home to the guitar. Other than a small ding on the bottom side, its in great shape and was ready for me to tune up. It plays like a 335 super strat mix and its great. Surprised Yamaha discontinued the guitar.

She is deluxe for sure. Looks like some nice color in the head stock inlay. I also like the color of the pickup surrounds. HNGD!
