||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 serial number of 001043 indicate the guitar was born in August 1977. Moderate level of oxidation on the hardware and tuners is in progress but they should be acceptable considering its soon-to-be 40 year anniversary. You may also be surprised how straight and comfortable the neck is. It offers a huge merit in playability.
So my fair judgement for this guitar is a graceful vintage with good care taken. I am shipping the guitar with the genuine hardshell case.
