Another single cutaway SG in my collection, the rare Yamaha SG-45; these guitars were produced during a short period in the early 1970s, in the run up to the famous SG-175 and the later well known SG-2000. This Yamaha SG-45 is the entry to the range of the single cutaway YamahaSGs and is built from high quality materials. The finish was simple and the general finishing was either natural wood, dark or light. The guitars are pretty and the translucent varnish allows you to see the beautifully crafted wood surface. The sound of these vintage gems is outstanding with the vintage pick ups. Guitar is all original and lives in its original orange faux leather gigbag.
