The Yamaha RGX-TTD6 Ty Tabor Drop 6 was designed with Ty Tabor.The "D6", for drop six, is Yamaha's derivation of Ty's original RGX and denotes that this guitar was designed from the beginning to be tuned down for a weightier sound. A typical string tuning begins with the normally low E string tuned down to a low C.The D6 has the same construction, materials and looks of the original Ty Tabor RGXTT model. It has a unique raised figured maple center on a basswood body. This makes the guitar look a bit like it has a neck-through construction but it still has a bolt-on neck. The 12th position on the rosewood fretboard features a Ty Tabor inlay, the only inlay on the fretboard. The position markers are placed on the upper edge of the neck. The pickups are 2 Seymour Duncan Vintage Rails single coils and a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge position. With a push-push switch it's possible to split the coil of the humbucker. The controls are black and so is the hardware which consist of a Wilkinson VS100G vibrato and Sperzel locking tuners which are mounted in a staggered layout, keeping the strings at a consistent pull-angle away from the nut. The 3D headstock on this guitar has a 3+3 tuner configuration and matches the color of the raise maple center.
