Lefty '82 Yamaha SBG2000

Had my eye on one of these for a very long time, this one has been well used, lots of dings, scratches and "character" marks. It came from Hawaii of all places.

Neck through guitar with a mahogany body, three piece maple top, the neck is a three piece from mahogany, maple, mahogany. The brass sustain block under the bridge really does add to the sustain, the neck pickup in particular sustains like a violin. Pickups are Yamahas own Spinex pickups with coil taps on the tone controls.

Without a doubt a very high quality instrument, as good as any I've played. It weighs 9.4lbs, same weight as my Heritage 157 and lighter than the Les Paul which is 10lbs

The "B" in SBG was to avoid conflict with Gibson in the USA market, it's the same guitar as an SG2000, the only difference is the truss rod cover.

I LOVE IT!!!

I can't believe you found one of those! Talk about rare!

Looks all original - amazing. You said from Hawaii? How the heck did you run across it?
