Here an example of one of the junior Yamaha SG series, a vintage 38-year old electric guitar made in Japan with great looks, excellent player with a lovely sound and a good solid feel. This is one of the early 1970s members of the SG family and suits a mix of rhythm and lead guitar. It is set up with a fair low action, so it plays light and fluid. This guitar has some genuine patina from play-wear but is in very good condition for its age and has a lot of mojo and sports a definite vintage vibe.
The guitar has a solid wood body with carved top, set neck, rosewood fretboard with dot mother of pearl position markers, clean chrome hardware and tulip shaped tuning pegs. The sound is through 2 high-output pickups which when put through a proper valve amp, gives of a great sound from a sweet clean to a crunchy growl. Yamaha SG-600 guitars came onto the scene in 1979 along with the relatively unknown SG-800 and were available in tobacco sunburst and black. Weight of guitar approx. 3.8 Kgs, neck width at nut approx. 4.4 cm.
