No guitar collection is complete without some semi acoustic guitars. For the Gibson aficionados, that would be a 335 or a 175, the one Liam Gallagher uses or Steve Howe for the respective guitars. Now back in time, when Carlos Santana was consulted for his part in the development of the now famous Yamaha SG-2000, Yamaha Corp had just released two interesting solid body guitars, the Yamaha SG-90 and legendary Yamaha SG-175. Yamaha Corp had developed some interest semiacoustics, however, in 1974 the Yamaha SA-60 and SA-90 were released. These were the top of the range semiacoustics that Yamaha produced over the period 1966-69. High quality maple was formed and moulded into a beautifully crafted guitar. Quite a bit larger than the Gibson 335 or 339, these guitars resonated well even when played unplugged. The large hollow body is craft fully made with rosewood fingerboard, real abalone and finished off with chrome hardware. With a three way toggle switch within two dual hum-buckers, give the guitar a great solid punch and the set neck construction with glued in neck gives it ample sustain. The headstock is quite large and finished off in a lovely wood finish.
