||1988 Yamaha SG-3000|
Cream of the JP vintage crop
On sale is the king of JP vintage, Yamaha SG3000. symbolized by silky rich sustains and fully matured woody tone, she is unquestionably the top of the line of SG series. Sturdy build generates rich sustain and fully matured woody tone. 3 ply maple + mahogany neck balances over a wide tonal range, where Maple boosts high-range sustain while Mahogany beefs up low-range. What is more, Mexican abalone bindings gives impressive presence at glance and adds significance at fretboard inlay. This is the very culmination of Yamaha solid guitar product lineup.
All parts function excellent. No string buzz, no noise in circulating the volume/tone knobs. You must also be very fond of Yamaha's unique feature of push-push toggle. Multiple tonality between single coil and humbucker can be played by pushing either of the tone knobs.
Speaking of the condition, the natural oxidation around the hardware is the only area I have to point out. Multiple shots of the magnified photos follow, so please let me know if you see any noticeable issues. Lastly, to the lucky owner the original hardshell case comes along.
