The Yamaha SBG-3000 guitar is the example of a top quality build guitar. Sporting killer looks and equipped with a great sound whichever way you set the tone/volume pots. It sports a mahogany body with maple cap, a proper thru body neck, ebony fret board, abalone split-wing fret-board position markers, abalone purfling round the binding. Untarnished, gold plated hardware, Spinex pups with coil tapping option.
The guitar is heavy and has lots and lots of sustain. The guitar is a real beauty with the cream white finish finished off with elaborate binding in abalone. It once more demonstrates the Yamaha luthiers’ craftsmanship with a great appearance, headstock decoration and triple ply black pick-guard, which is provided separately but never fitted.
The Yamaha SG-3000 is the ultimate SG, evolved from the renowned Yamaha SG-175 in 1974 which was made famous by musicians such as Carlos Santana, and the later SG-2000 with by guitarists like Stuart Adamson, Trevor Horn, Al DiMeola, Phil Manzanera and Bob Marley to name but a few. Despite the weight, the guitar is a joy to play as it has been set up with a lovely low action. Hard case included. Weight of guitar approx. 4.3 Kgs, neck width at nut approx. 4.4 cm.
