Listed: 27/11/2020

Yamaha SG2000 Solidbody Sunburst, 1982

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 Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model was unique to this era though during 1968, Fender built a Paisley Telecaster. The finish uses a foil layer on top of the body wood and covered with a polyester sunburst layer. This Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model dates to 1987 and was built for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen at Matsumoto, Nagano. It’s in good clean condition though it has definitely been played, as evidenced by the fingerboard wear.

Martin 000-28 Steel String Guitar

Type: ,

Listed: 26/11/2020

Martin 000-28  Steel String Guitar

The Martin 000-28 is a guitar delivering bold and complex tone in a package with timeless style. The 000-28 is a small-bodied guitar with a tight waist. This smaller body shape works really well for players with a light to medium touch, as you don’t have to drive the top as hard to produce tone. The classic pairing of Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood sides and back on the Martin 000-28 produces a rich and full-bodied tone with plenty of complex overtones. The x bracing pattern of the top is scalloped which removes some mass and allows the top to vibrate more increasing volume and bass response.
