George,
It is an RGX-820Z, I believe the Z is for the piezo pickup in bridge. A nice compact guitar that I have been playing a lot lately, it offers up a nice variety of sounds.
From the link Peter sent: In addition to the powerful Seymour Duncan '59 at the neck and JB humbucker at the bridge. Body/ Alder, Neck/ Maple, Fingerboard/ Rosewood: 22frets, Bridge/ Yamaha Original R1000P Tremolo, Pickups/ Humbucker x 2, Colors/ Amber Burst

Thanks DD, I bought it because I liked the looks and thought the dual jack with piezo was different. I believe Fender Deluxe Telecasters were out fitted with a piezo for the same reason? (not sure if it was Fender custom shop or user mod)

Peter, You are correct, and Thank-You for the catalog page. I had a bit of trouble finding information on how and what the knobs do. There is a dual knob that controls the blend of piezo to humbucker when the chord is in jack #2. Not as acoustic sounding as I thought but it is a nice variation.

Peter,
Thank-you for the links to the manuals!!
Also nice work on straightening out the Photobucket extortion. The work you and Bill have done has been a great source of information to myself, and I'm sure other Yamaholics as well. I can only imagine the time it takes to do it once, much less having to go through the Photobucket ordeal. Great Job Guys.

Jeff
