Yamaha SG-2000 in black finish, made in 1988 but still in excellent condition. A beauty with its shiny black finish. The finish is dark, and appears mirror-like. 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. Due to the quest for sustain and more sustain, the SG- Series became a very heavy guitar. The guitar kitted out with a thru body neck, brass sustain plate under the bridge and an ebony fret-board. This model is kitted out with coil tapped pick ups giving it enormous tonal range. Despite not common on early Yamaha SG-2000 , coil taps are commonplace in later SGs, and can be found on all the models slimmer necked, SG-2000s’s. A great SG, lives in its case.
