From the flagship SG range in my collection. The Yamaha SG-3000 custom 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. Brass 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 finish in burgundy topped 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 guitaristst 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. Weight of guitar approx. 4.3 Kgs, neck width at nut approx. 4.4 cm. One of the best of Yamaha SG range.
