||1983 Yamaha SG-3000|
Beloved by Santana
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.
Maintenance-wise, all parts are genuine and functioning ok. Pickguard is coming along but the latch and bolts are missing unfortunately. A concerned buyer would have close look at fogginess, which is common among over-30-year old Yamaha SA / SG series. Minor dents, looking more like lacquer wear, found on the bottom left body. A graceful Oxidation in progress over the hardware. What else? Please ask me and I will take the details photos for the area you want to investigate further.
Lastly, the lucky new owner will have the genuine hardshell case delivered together with this legendary vintage.
