Yamaha CV820WB Wes Borland Signature Electric Guitar in Black

This model is one of the most sought after among music and instrument lovers. Some of the details for this model include: Wes Borland Signature Electric Guitar, with Wes Borland designed body profiling, unique Takumi-Kezuri body construction, Yamaha Finger Clamp® quick change tremolo system and Yamaha Custom33 split-field humbuckers.

Wes Borland Signature Electric Guitar

Borland was intensely involved in every aspect of the design process of his dream signature model from conception to completion. This new model boasts a distinctive design incorporating Yamahas unique Takumi-Kezuri construction in which the back, sides, and center block are all carved from one block of wood (alder, in this case). A two-piece carved maple top finishes the instrument, making it a true semi-hollowbody electric guitar. Other notable design elements include YASH (Yamaha Artist Services Hollywood) designed Custom33 pickups and binding on the inlayed 12-degree angled headstock, F-holes, and beautifully contoured body.

Yamaha's Finger Clamp Quick Change Tremolo System

Wes Borland is well known on stage for his elaborate face paint and black-tinted contacts as guitarist for Limp Bizkit. He has also kept himself busy fronting his own band Black Light Burns and as a member of such bands as Big Dumb Face, Eat the Day, and Goatslayer.

Custom 33 Pickup Designed by YASH and Wes

The Custom 33 pickups were developed by YASH (Yamaha Artist Service Hollywood) in collaboration with Wes Borland. 1st through 3rd and 4th through 6th string pole pieces are grouped separately in a design that emphasizes high-end sharpness to produce a clear tone from the hollow body.

Finger Clamp Tremolo System

A locking tremolo and nut system offers stable tuning even under heavy tremolo use. And no tools are required when it comes time to change strings.

About Wes Borland's String Gauges

Wes' signature sound is partly attributed to the use of the unique set of string gauges he uses on his signature guitar.

1st String : C# tuning : gauge .011
2nd String : G# tuning : gauge .014
3rd String : E tuning : gauge .022 (Wound)
4th String : B tuning : gauge .032 (Wound)
5th String : F# tuning : gauge .042 (Wound)
6th String : C# tuning : gauge .052 (Wound)
The guitar is strung with .010-.046 gauge strings when shipped from the factory.
