Yamaha SG-1300TS (Black, 1985)

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.

The guitar built from flatter extra thin maple and mahogany with a mahogany through body neck. The fretboard is ebony with mother of pearl dot style inlays. Typical weight of these models was around the 3.8 kgs. The sound of these vintage gems is outstanding, produced by a simple 1tone/1vol arrangement with a coil tapping option and a 3-way pick up selector switch. Hardware was black plated with a diecast rocking magic stop bar. The sound of this model is full, produced from 2 Spinex covered humbuckers, which have a strong presence, ideal for rock and rhythm. The 4 SG-1300 models in this particular line up were the Yamaha SG-1300, 1300T, 1300TS and 1300-24.  Guitar is all original and lives in its original lined hard case.
