Original vintage c 1980 Yamaha SG-1000. We are huge vintage Yamaha guitar fans and this is among the best of them. The amount of detail and craftsmanship that Yamaha was offering at this guitar’s original price point is insane. According to many opinions out there, these killed any Gibson of the same period when it came to build quality. Not surprising for an early 80’s Japanese guitar that was considered a brand flagship. 

Think of it as a guitar with all the feel and weight of a Les Paul, the looks of an SG and the versatility of well, all of the above and more.

Featuring a chunky yet comfortable 1960s-style neck with bound ebony fretboard and mother of pearl inlays. The combination of a hefty body with the Yamaha humbuckers produces booming, resonant tones that just seem to keep going. Then on top of that, throw in a couple of push/pull pots to coil tap the humbuckers and it’s tones for days.

Comes with the original pickguard although we’ve seen these taken off for aesthetic purposes. We kind of like it though! The pickguard will be shipped in the case to avoid any damage.
