Newly found a 2000s Yamaha SG-1000 in Tobacco Sunburst finish, Generally we still see quite a few SG-1000 guitars kicking about, but the clean examples are becoming less common and harder to get. This one is mint, even so that the protective plastic is still on the back plates. The brass hardware is shiny as if it’s just left the factory. The SG-1000 is a great guitar and the weapon of choice of many renowned players.
The SG-1000 is the more rocky little brother of the acclaimed Yamaha SG-2000 that was developed in the 1970s. This guitar is a top quality axe and handles and balances well; it has been set up with low action and plays light and fluid. The guitar is a solid instrument and quality build with a set neck and ebony fret-board with mother of pearl, split wing position markers. Weight of guitar approx. 4.2 Kgs, neck width at nut approx. 4.4 cm. Lives in its hard-case.
