  •  SOLD  1983 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 against SA-2000S suited for jazz, but solid spruce top of SA-1200S is equally 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.

Condition-wise, top left hand of the rear headstock has chip-off, as indicated in the photo below. Other than that, I love this crossover axe, and so will you certainly. Lastly, a vintage gigbag ships along to you, the next owner.
