There are some left handed guitars in my collection and over the years I have collected a handful of iconic Yamaha guitars so here we have a left handed 1981 Vintage Yamaha SG-1000 L in Cherry Sunburst finish, Generally we still see a few right-handed 1970s and 1980’s SG-1000 kicking about, but the lefties become ever rarer, especially the 1st issue examples and even more so any lefty ones. This one is in excellent condition and comes with its hard-case. The SG-1000 is the more rocky brother of the acclaimed Yamaha SG-2000 that was developed in the 1970s, but without the thru neck or sustain block, and it sports less of the fancy mother of pearl fret marker inlays and binding purfling; the guitar handles and balances well and plays like a dream, light and fluid, and has been set up with lovely low action. The guitar is a solid built and quality oozing instrument with a set neck and ebony fret-board. Guitar is in near mint condition, no marks, dents or main issues. Frets are really good. The serial number consists of 6-digits and “made in Japan”;
The guitar is in excellent condition verging on near mint, although it is just under 40 years old, there are almost no body marks, or any play wear which is remarkable for this vintage guitar. It has original hard case.
