Description: 

The Yamaha RGX 1220S is similar to the Yamaha RGX1212S but has another pickup configuration. This superstrat has 2 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. The RGX 1220S has a switch to select series or parrallel connection for the humbuckers and another one is a coil tap switch for both humbuckers. There are seperate volume knobs, one is the master volume and the other is for the neck pick up. 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.
