1981 Yamaha SG-2000
Power & Sustain fascinates Santana
With superior sustain in place, and block of wood through the body and neck, Santana churned out his all-time best songs, including Moonflower, She's Not There, Open Invitation, All I Ever Wanted (all studio version), and Dance Sister Dance (Baila Mi Hermana), Let the Children Play / Jugando, Europa (all live versions). Yamaha SG guitar indeed was pivotal in his development of the smooth, round, endlessly sustaining tone which has become his trademark.
Speaking of this guitar on sale, she is the earlier generation, manufactured in July 1981. No push push pot, so simple and elegant design.
Scratches and slight chips found but considering 32 years of age, this guitar shines in my inventory closet. Concerned buyer would want to check out the detailed photos around bottom, rear side of cutaway, and neck.
Apart from the cosmetic wear, all the parts are functioning excellent and she plays with impressive sustain. Also note, the original Yamaha hardshell case comes along. Bottom line, Yamaha SG-2000 does set itself apart from the ordinary vintage solid body guitars. Serious players, collectors, what makes you hesitate to bid?
