||1981 Yamaha SG-3000|
Cream of the JP vintage crop
Showcasing here 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 SG series lineups. 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 productions. You must also be very fond of Yamaha's unique feature of push-push toggle. Multiple tonality of single coil and humbucker can be played by pushing either of the tone knobs.
Speaking of the maintenance, all parts are genuine and the bridge pickup has been replaced with new one (from the same Yamaha Spinex), that's why the stamped dates on the bottom of the pickups show different. Thin scratches around the rear and bottom body, plus fogginess appearing on the rear headstock are the noticeable areas. I am ok to provide more detailed photos if you are further interested.
For 30 years this guitar served one pastime musician only. A genuine hardshell case will be shipped together to you who will become the 2nd owner of this treasure.
