Yamaha SG-1000 (1977/8, 1st Issue, Cherry Sunburst)

From my collection, a clean 1970s Yamaha SG-1000 in Cherry Sunburst, Generally we still see quite a few 1980s and 1990s ’s SG1000 in good condition kicking about, but the 1970’s in good condition are becoming a rarity, and clean examples are very rare. The SG-1000 is the more rocky little brother of the acclaimed Yamaha SG-2000 that was developed in the 1970s. This guitar is a dream to play and handles and balances well and plays light and fluid. The guitar is a solid and quality build instrument with a set neck and ebony fret-board with mother of pearl, split wing position markers. The guitar is in excellent condition and although it is over 40 years old, there are only minor marks. The gold hardware has some tarnishing. Comes with vintage Yamaha faux leather soft case. Weight of guitar approx. 4.2 Kgs, neck width at nut approx. 4.4 cm. Price £1399 ONO
