Yamaha SG-1000-24 (1984, Cream, 24 Frets)

Unusual and stunning Yamaha SG-1000-24  in aged cream finish. Of all the set neck type Yamaha SGs, this is the rare 2-octave 24-fret version. The SG-1000-24 is an upgrade from the SG-1000 and this model like all early SG-1000 models is kitted out with Alnico V  high output Pick ups. This guitar is a real gem, ebony fingerboard inlaid with pearloid fret markers. The guitar itself plays like a dream, light and fluid, and has been set up with a nice low action. As with many mid 80’s guitars from the Yamaha stable, the finish has aged a bit with a yellowish lustre due to aging. Despite being 30+ years old, guitar is in real good condition with, only some tarnishing of the brass hardware creating a nice patina and giving the guitar ounces of mojo. Like most SGs, this guitar is quite heavy, Tonewise this particular model is kitted out with coil taps, giving an enormous range and variation. Weight of guitar approx. 4.4 Kgs, neck width at nut approx. 4.2 cm.
