Here a very rare guitar, a top of the range Yamaha Les Paul type model the elusive SL-1000, the Japanese Yamaha Studio Lord model. The SL range guitars were produced from 1976 till the early 1980s, along the well known Yamaha SG range. The guitar sports a solid body, fitted with a set neck, with a long tenon joint reaching as far as the pick up pocket. The guitar has an ebony fretboard, gold hardware, dual metal covered Yamaha Humbuckers. The guitar body is decorated with real mother of pearl fret markers and cream binding that has aged to a cream yellow hue. The sound of these Pickups is awesome and the guitar more than matches a top of range Gibson Custom All in all a quality vintage guitar, killer looks, and oozing of mojo and vintage vibe.
