Whoever, has seen footage of Bob Marley playing his “No. Wiman No Cry” song in the 1970s or watched Old Grey whistle test in the 1970s and 1980s will have seen bands like Magazine, Skids or Bebop Deluxe using the Yamaha SG-1000 Model. Like those on show, we here have a clean 1983 Yamaha SG-1000 in Tobacco Sunburst finish, Generally we still see quite a few 1990’s SG1000 in good condition kicking about, but the 1970’s and early 1980s are becoming less common, and clean examples are rare. The SG1000 is the more rocky little brother of the acclaimed Yamaha SG-2000 that was developed in the 1970s. This guitar handles and balances well and plays light and fluid. The guitar is a solid and quality build instrument with a set neck and ebony fret-board with mother of pearl, split wing position markers. The guitar is in good condition and although it is over 35 years old, there are only minor marks. The gold hardware has some tarnishing. Guitar lives in its vintage hardcase. Weight of guitar approx. 4.2 Kgs, neck width at nut approx. 4.4 cm.
