The Yamaha RGX 1203S is a superstrat with 3 single coils with Alnico V humbuckers. The 1200 series Yamaha RGX guitars (RGX1212S, RGX1220S, RGX1203S) feature a rather unique tone control system. There is a mini toggle switch which bypasses the entire system to put you in Direct Drive mode. There is a Master volume knob and two seperate tone knobs, one is for the neck and middle pickup, the other tone knob is for the bridge pickup. . Other features of the guitar are a short scale: 24.75 inch, neck-through construction and extra scooped cutaways to better reach the upper regions of the fretboard.
