Here a left handed 1976/7 Vintage Yamaha SG-1000 left handed in Cherry Sunburst finish, Generally we still see a few 1980’s SG-1000 kicking about, but the 1970’s become rarer, especially the 1st issue examples and even more so any lefty ones. This one is in good condition for its 40+ years! 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, 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. The condition of the guitar is good and the frets have plenty life in them. The serial number is 001076, and consists of 6-digits and “made in Japan”; a six-digit serial number starting with “00”. In 1977 these guitars were priced at around ¥100,000, considered a small fortune by then standards.
