Unusual and unique Yamaha SG shredder guitar, one of only 2 in my collection, the Yamaha SG-1300TS guitar is the example of an unusual top quality build guitar. Killer looks and great sound whichever way you set the tone/volume.
It sports a Mahogany body with a trem system, a flat body with a flush, set neck, ebony fret board, abalone dot shaped fret-board position markers, locking nut and Tremolo unit. Black/Chrome Hardware, Twin hum-buckers, coil tapping option from the single tone pot. The guitar is equally heavy as its SG-2000/1000 counterparts and still has lots and lots of sustain, although no sustain plate fitted under bridge like its brother SG-2000. The guitar is a real beauty in soot black with cream aged binding. The guitar is quite well finished with a great appearance, minor headstock decoration and no standard pick-guard. Weight of guitar approx. 4.2 Kgs, neck width at nut approx. 4.4 cm.
Here a great vintage guitar from the Gibson stable, a 1968 Gibson SG, body and neck made from mahogany, the guitars ports the usual double-cutaway shape with bevelled edges. Great playing guitar, great resonance and sustain. Dark rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot markers. The guitar is kitted out with a traditional P90 pickups, and a floating trem system. Guitar is finished in high-gloss cherry red nitrocellulose, faded over time oozing a vintage feel.
Pickups are quite powerful, Vintage stock P90s, and give off a great tone when played over my Hughes & Kettner. Tone and volume controls have the classic configuration of an independent volume and tone control for each pickup and a standard three-way toggle switch. Adjustable concertina bridge and aftermarket Grover tuners. The neck is simply bound with cream aged binding, control knobs are black top hat style with silver volume and tone inserts, an ’60s five-ply large black plastic pickguard, and traditional “bell” truss rod cover.
