Vola Guitars Releases the OZ RV TNC Model

An all-new model loaded with high-end specs, a light-weight mahogany body, and unique pickup positioning.


This brand-new Oz model, the OZ TNC, has a light-weight mahogany body and a flame maple top comes in three gorgeous color options: Light Tiger Eye Burst, Sapphire Blue Gloss, and Tribal Black Gloss. In addition to the new look, Vola designed a unique pickup positioning known as the Fanned Pickup Layout. This new design increases the response from the treble strings and gives the player more control over the low-end strings.

Vola added a push/pull volume control for the neck pickup, a tone knob that can push/pull to coil-tap for front & rear pickup, a versatile 5-way switch, and a “blower” switch, which allows the player to bypass the volume & tone controls.

While the Yamaha name is famous in circles beyond the guitar world, they’ve made first-class guitars since the 1960s. And while they don’t unleash new releases with the frequency of some larger guitar brands, every now and then they come down the mountain with a new axe that reminds us of their capacity to build great electric 6-strings. In 2015, Yamaha introduced the first generation Revstar. With a handsome aesthetic inspired by the company’s motorcycle racing heritage, the Revstar combined sweet playability and vintage style touchstones. This year, Yamaha gave the Revstar an overhaul—including body chambering, updated pickups, and new switching. What’s impressive is how these alterations enhance the already impressive playability and versatility of the original.
