1976 1st issue Yamaha SG-2000 in Dark Green finish, in excellent condition. A real beauty with its translucent dark green finish and one of the nicest Yamaha SGs, this is no doubt one of the most wanted versions of the Yamaha SG-2000. The history of the SG-2000 is interesting in that it was developed in the 1970s with the input from none less than Carlos Santana. Like it’s predecessor, the SG-175, the guitar plays like a dream, light and fluid, and has been set up with very low action.
The guitar is quite heavy, with a thru body neck, brass sustain plate under the bridge and an ebony fret-board. It is a very pretty guitar. This model does not have the original coil taps as that was a later feature, but an in phase and out pages switch option was added which emulates a coil tap. A really great SG
