GORGEOUS Yamaha SG-60 Semi-hollow Electric Guitar in natural gloss, made in Japan 1975.
This is a stunning item! It's in incredible shape, especially for a guitar that's well over 40 years old. Very clean all around. These SA Vintage Yamaha's are incredibly well made; everything is spoton where it should be.
The shape is a Yamaha original, it's certainly got a great vintage appeal and all the detail including knobs, tuners, bridge and inlays enhance the vintage charm perfectly. The tail-piece features logo-embossed leather, a special aspect that adds to vintage charm. The neck features some amazing birds-eye grain, it's very pretty and it feels equally as good to match.
The tone is where this really shines... it's thick, warm, responsive, resonant, expressive.... Yamaha really nailed it with this one, it's pure sublime.
Includes cool original case in good condition for its age.
Early SA series have serial numbers at the end of the fingerboard.
This guitar's serial is starting from 3, the estimate is it was made in 74 or 75.
