Here a bit of rock history, an example of pre Carlos Santana Yamaha SG. Prior to the famous Yamaha SG175 and Yamaha SG 2000, Yamaha Music Corporation produced a series of early Yamaha SG double cutaway prototypes. These were the Yamaha SG 30, 35, 50, 70. In 1974 the phenomenal SG90 and SG175 were released. Like these later models, the SG 30 is a light weight early SG with a phenomenal playability and versatile sound. This is a truly great electric guitar with a good solid feel, plays light and fluid with lots of mojo and a defionite vintage vibe.
The guitar has a solid body with a 4-bolted neck, rosewood fret board with mother of pearl dot position markers, Chrome Hardware and Tuning pegs. The sound is through high output Yamaha’s own pickups.
Yamaha SG-30 guitars were made from 1972 till 1974 in translucent red, and natural wood.
