Yamaha SG Series

Yamaha SG Series

The Yamaha SG series was developed by Yamaha in the early 1970s and saw an enormous number of variations. The Yamaha’s SG is probably the most successful design since Yamaha started with production of solid-body guitars in 1966, later on the Pacifica, based on the Superstrat concept would become very successful in the 1990s and onward

Prior to Santana’s involvement with Yamaha, the SG was an unknown type guitar that had a limited user base, predominantly in Japan and selected other countries where guitarists had taken those guitars. Yamaha’s electric guitar making started in earnest in 1966 with futuristic shaped guitars such as the SG-2, 3 and SG-7 to name but a few.

Early 1972 the first more modern SG series was launched the SG-30, 35 etc. These guitars had all in common a double Cutaway design. In addition to those symmetrically shaped guitars, some models were more Les Paul shaped like the SG-40, 45, 60, 65, 80 and 85
