New pickup system for improved reliability and consistency and firmware improvements to complement the new pickups.


Firmware has been tweaked for a more musical experience. The new Layer and Zone structure allows two sets of sounds to be mapped on the fingerboard per user selection. Other new features: chorus effect, transposition, pan, zones can be stored per layer in the 99 presets.


The onboard sounds are all new. Through our relationship with a professional sample house we have completely reworked the built-in sound library to enhance the stand-alone capability of the YRG .
