Here a vintage 1970s Yamaha SG-500 as the entry level SG in the 1976-79 Yamaha SG line up. Despite not being the famous SG-2000, it’s a great electric guitar with a good solid feel, plays light and fluid with low action and a killer sound. One of these was part of the iconic sound of Big Country
Solid Asian mahogany body fitted with a mahogany set neck, rosewood fretboard with split mother of pearl position markers, Chrome Hardware and Tuning pegs in Gotoh style, with plain stoptail. The sound is created with 2 Humbucker pickups, with black surrounds. Yamaha SG-500s were made in translucent red and black during 1976-79 and were good solid guitars in their own right although they were less well known than their more famous brothers SG-1000 and SG-2000. However, anyone who gets one of these does not want to fork out a “Kings Ransom” for an SG-2000 and will be pleasantly suprised by the Mojo, Vintage vibe, playability, sound and the quality of this lower end Yamaha SG instrument.
