Signature T-style Talman for Math Rock Marvel Yvette Young

COVET's Yvette Young is a font of brain-twisting mathy rhythms and cascading harmonic tapping. Accompanying her S-style YY10 is the Ibanez Yvette Young Signature YY20 Electric Guitar, supercharging the popular Talman platform with stellar pickups, premium hardware, and enhanced finishing. As far as looks are concerned, this Yvette Young Signature stands alone —its "Orange Cream Sparkle" lacquer finish has flecks of metallic sparkle baked in to help catch the light onstage. On the playability side of things, Yvette's custom neck profile and fret-hugging low action supply a great platform for technical leadwork and tapping. The icing on this coveted cake is Yvette's choice of Duncan Alnico II Pro Tele single-coil pickups, hard-working Gotoh tuners, and a rock-solid Gotoh Tele bridge, not to mention a genuine bone nut. Whether you're a technical guitarist yourself or just looking for a show-ready 6-string with premium pickups and hardware, you're sure to love the Ibanez Yvette Young Signature YY20. Comes set up for FACGBE tuning. 

T-style tonal platform

Yvette's Ibanez YY20 is a reboot of popular single-coil tone machines of antiquity. Its lightweight alder body supplies a familiar response and comfortable carry weight, sculpted for greater ergonomics and bedecked in a beautiful metallic Orange Cream Sparkle finish that really makes an impression onstage or hanging from your studio walls. You even get a custom sticker pack designed by Yvette for an added dose of DIY flair.

Easy-maneuvering maple neck

Covet's infectious grooves rely heavily on Yvette's two-hand-tapped melodic earworms. For this, Yvette specified a custom-profile Ibanez neck made from solid maple. Top to bottom, the YY20 remains silky smooth and comfortable in the hands, whether you're slapping, chording, or running leads. Its versatile 12-inch-radius rosewood fingerboard supports a wide range of players' tastes and styles. An added feature we at Irvine Art & Music really appreciate is the luminescent side dot inlays, which make it easy to keep track of your fret-hand position on dark stages.

Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups

Yvette's choice of pickups — the Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Tele single-coil set — deliver sonic sweetness and crystal-clear articulation when played softly, and break up musically when it's time to dig in. By using Alnico 2 rod magnets, these pickups soften the treble attack, avoiding excessive high-end bite while keeping bass notes punchy and tight. 

Road-ready Gotoh hardware

As players like Yvette know, tuning stability is just as important as tone in an instrument. To meet the needs of one of today's preeminent math rockers, the Ibanez YY20 comes stock with a Gotoh GTC202 bridge for real-deal Tele feel and pro-level performance as well as Gotoh MG-T locking tuners to eliminate slipping behind the nut.
