Yamaha SG-85 (Natural Wood, 1974)

Apart from the double cutaway Yamaha SGs, Yamaha Corp made some single cutaway SG’s. This Yamaha SG-85 is the top of the range in the Single Cutaway series consisting of SG-40, 45, 60, 65, 80 and 85 series. The finish was simple and the general finishing was either natural wood, dark or light. The guitars are quite pretty and the translucent varnish allows you to see the beautifully crafted wood surface.  The sound of these vintage gems is outstanding with the vintage high output pick ups. Guitar is all original with Yamaha fur lined hard case.
