Yamaha SG2000 Reissue Red Sunburst, 2010 ( No Longer Available )


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

Shown here is Yamaha SG2000 Reissue with Red Sunburst, built around July 2010 and in very good, original condition.

Introduced in 1976, the Yamaha SG2000 was considered perhaps the finest solidbody guitar from Japan – perhaps from anywhere – for its time. This design was the result of a collaboration between Yamaha and Carlos Santana to improve the Yamaha SG175. The result became the flagship of the Yamaha electric line until 1988. Around 1983, Gibson gave legal notice to Yamaha over the use of the ‘SG’ term, and Yamaha responded by changing the name for US models to SBG for Solid Body Guitar. However, in Japan, the SG name stayed until 1988 when the model was discontinued. The Yamaha SG2000 Reissue was built from 2004 to 2010, making this one of the last.

The Yamaha SG2000 Reissue, like its predecessor, takes cues from classic American models, but there are significant differences, the first being that it uses neck-through construction (the 1984 and later SBG models used set necks). The Maple center section is flanked with Mahogany, and the body is capped with a carved Maple top. The substantial bridge rides on a brass block inset into the top. The neck is three piece, with Mahogany again flanking the Maple center section. This construction provides massive sustain and clarity. The fingerboard is Ebony with acrylic position markers.

This Yamaha SG2000 Reissue dates to July of 2010 and was built in Hamamatsu in Shizuoka Prefecture. It’s in great condition with very little visible wear and little finish damage. Fret wear is vanishingly light. This guitar plays very well, as these models typically do, and has more sustain than almost any other guitar.

The original Yamaha hard shell case is included.
