Another one of the classic Vintage Japanese Guitars from Japan’s ‘Golden Era’ of guitar manufacture. The Japanese Yamaha SC-1200 electric guitar is the top of the range of the so-called Japan Superstrats and was produced only from 1978-1980 and offered a customised take on the three-pick-up solid body guitar concept. Features included a familiar double cut offset Alder body (Strat Style) with Maple and Mahogany Thru body neck construction; Ebony fingerboard with diamond inlays; Three original single coil pick-up with ‘Super Combination’ On/Off switching providing range of sounds that had not yet been possible from a conventional 5-way switching system like the original Stratocasters; 13 different combinations possible with an enormous tonal variety.
The guitar is very easy to set up due to its fixed bridge with 6-individual saddles. This guitar is near 40 years old and in remarkably good and all original condition. A super super strat in all but name.
