Vintage vibe, heavy sonics, and complete tonal flexibility.

Constructed entirely of tone-rich maple, the Yamaha SA503 TVL Troy Van Leeuwen Signature Electric Guitar is a semi-hollowbody with a set maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard, and three soapbar-style single-coil pickups with a custom all-access switching system. The pickups are wired up to dual 3-way selectors that make any pickup combination possible, including reversed-phase humbucking options. A chrome pedestal bridge and a licensed Bigsby vibrato tailpiece add to the vintage feel and versatile performance. This is a guitar designed to walk the fine line between modern performance and vintage style and sound.

Modern guitarist Troy van Leeuwen has navigated his way through a variety of bands and left his indelible mark in each of them. From session work with Depeche Mode, Korn, and Limp Bizkit to his role in A Perfect Circle, Troy has done it all. With his current spot in Queens of the Stone Age, Troy is helping reinvent the band and realize Josh Homme's twisted musical vision. His guitar of choice? His own Yamaha signature model—the SA503 TVL.
