    So I'd been GAS-ing for an LP of some sort, then this guy showed up at the shop...







    Not a whole lot of info to be had but heres what I know:



    '73 or '74 Yamaha SG-30 (according to the interwebz they went to an open book or "W" style headstock in '75)



    Pickups are labeled SG-30



    All the hardware/pots/electronics, except for the input jack and one of the tuners is original.



    Plays and sounds like absolute butter.



    Apparently Santana used to play these things (Really, I have no idea if this is true or not.)



    Cosmeticly, He (ive decided that its a tired old man, as opposed to my others which are all sexy young women) is kinda rough, but there is soooooo much mojo in him that it more than makes up for the scratches/knicks/dings.



    So, what does HCFX think?

          $190, I got an awesome deal, despite the cosmetic condition. Seriously he isn't a case queen. Lots of scuffs, scratches ect. Sounds amazing though.



          Up until today I had never found and SG that I liked. Something about them just didn't suit me. But this thing is incredibly well balanced and completly broken in. And the pickups are to die for.

                    How often do you think these guys look back on those pics and just



                    His guitar is way prettier than mine, and given that Santana played it automaticly has more mojo. Nonetheless I'm still very happy with what I got.

                              Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. The more I play it the happier I am.



                              Funny thing is I almost spent 2x the money on a different guitar yesterday but I decided to sleep on it. Low and behold the Ol' Man was waiting for me this morning. Serendipity I guess.
