This Yamaha SL-700 Custom was produced in Yamaha’s Matsumoku’s Custom shops and was deemed one of the top types of the Les Paul (SL/LP) range. The guitar sports a solid body, fitted with a set neck, gold hardware, dual metal covered Yamaha Humbuckers. The guitar body is decorated with mother of pearl fret markers and cream binding that has beautifully aged to a cream yellow hue.
Studio Lords were much more than Yamaha’s Les Paul copies, these were solid quality guitars built from quality wood and materials. The Yamaha Les Paul models were produced with two main types, the Lord Players (LP’s) and the Studio Lords (SL). Great guitars with lovely appearance, playability and quality feel with vintage vibe.
