 SOLD  1979 Yamaha SA-1200S
Crossover player for Fusion / Jazz
On sale is an exciting vintage of Yamaha semi hollow SA-1200S, where S in its model name stands for solid top, also applied for SA-2000S. The major difference between SA-1200S and SA-2000S is nickel vs gold-colored chrome hardware, and maple vs beech on side/back timber. Some of Japanese forums compare SA-1200S fitting best in fusion to SA-2000S suited for jazz, but solid spruce top of SA-1200S is surely appealing the jazz guitar seekers.

Bisound feature, also known as push-push tone selector, is normally shown on Yamaha's higher end guitars and SA-1200S joins the same league. Versatile single coil vividly contrasts fat and cheesy humbucker. Whichever is selected though, solid spruce top, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard resonates with excellent response and feedback.

I have little to comment on guitar condition, except for natural oxidation on hardware. Neck is straight. No chip / dent / scratch but please feel free to ask if you want the magnified photo for particular area of the guitar. To the new owner, a hardshell case ships along. Good luck!
