Here we have a SF-700, middle of the range in the 1st issue Super Flighter (SF) series made in Japan by Yamaha from 1978 to 1979, the are versatile guitars with a great handling ability and although less popular than the SG, they are well sought after.
The guitar has a 24 fret set neck into a solid mahogany body. It has two Alnico V hum-bucker pickups with independent volume and tone controls, in a 2 vol 2 tone arrangement; the SF-700 does not feature the coil-tap option like It’s 1 level up, the SF-1000, via a push push button, but still has a great tonal range.
Good quality chrome hardware and a rose wood fret board with mother of pearl markers. The guitar weighs a mere 3.7 kgs, is quite resonant sustains well and is a joy to play. This guitar is a brilliant axe and suits a mix of blues/classic rock, rhythm or lead.
