||1977 Yamaha SA-2000|
First Generation of jazzy SA series
Here we have one of the finest Japan-made 335, Yamaha's SA-2000. With her unique combination of maple top, beech + birch rim and back, plus Alnico I pickups, SA-2000 distinguishes herself from the other semi hollows.
The date stamped on the pickups indicate the guitar was born in 1977. Moderate level of oxidation on the hardware and the light fogging over the body which is commonly found among Yamaha guitars should be acceptable considering her 35 year-old age. Also note, the tuners have been replaced from the original (rusty) gold ones.
So my fair judgment for this guitar is a graceful vintage with good care taken. I am shipping the gutiar with a sturdy gig bag worldwide.
