Yvette Young is a leading force among the new wave of 21st century guitar virtuosos. Fronting math-rock outfit Covet, Young relies on her Ibanez YY10 signature guitar to achieve her distinctive tones and seamless playing fluidity. Finished in a striking slime green sparkle colour, this guitar certainly looks the part too!
The Ibanez YY10 is based on a timeless guitar construction formula. Featuring a medium-weight, balanced-sounding alder body, this wood serves as a great foundation for the sweet-sounding single-coil pickups.
Joining the body is a bolt-on maple neck carved to Young's specific YY neck profile, which is topped with a Maple fingerboard to ensure a bright and snappy tone. 22 medium-sized frets enable smooth playability, with ergonomic luminescent side dot inlays making it easy to see fingerboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
Seymour Duncan Five Two Single-Coil Pickups
A trio of Seymour Duncan Five Two pickups give this instrument its vibrant and articulate sound. Featuring a combination of alnico 2 and 5 rod magnets, these single-coils deliver sweet highs and tight lows that are truly in their element with clean amp settings or light overdrive.
The Ibanez YY10 comes equipped with a Wilkinson WV6-SB tremolo. Utilising the unique Wilkinson "5+1" knife-edges, this bridge offers the unsurpassed tone transfer of a 6-screw pivot system with the smooth fulcrum action of a 2 pivot set-up.
To keep things extra stable, the YY10 also comes fitted with Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads, ensuring incredible tuning stability.
