      Just posted a pic on the 'f-holes' thread, so thought I would bump the Yamaholics one as well;



      This one's an SAS-1500 - another semi-hollowbody, very pretty in Antique Violin Sunburst. It's on its way from Japan, apparently has a smaller body than the rest of Yammie's SA series line-up.



      With an all-mahoghany-body and a maple/spruce centre block, I'm curious to see how the tone and sustain will differ from my larger-bodied maple SA500...

              Wade: Is there a size difference between the two, or is that just the camera playing tricks?

                  That's my DREAM semi-acoustic! But since I already have the SA2200, I can't justify that purchase to the family administrator (my wife). Zenbu has also one. Let us know how it is once you get it.

                  Maple = bright sounding



                  Mahogany= mellower, rounder sound

                    I have a Yamaha Silent Guitar and a AES 620HB. Both are really fine guitars!

                    Hey, they were good enough for Tommy Tedesco to play!

                    I believe that Yamaha is the most underrated guitar maker around. You really don't hear to much about them, but they are out there and being played!
                    Two of the nicest gentlemen, and most talented people: Mssr's Diezel and Krampe.
                    Je préfèrerais mourir sans un sou dans une rue en Europe que de vivre en Amérique sous l'administration actuelle. Alizée est la meilleure. Vous, les princesses pop américaines, n'avez aucun talent, aucune classe, et vous sonnez comme de la merde. Sarkozy et le reste de l'Europe se moquent de notre président dans son dos.

                        Whilst poking around on Google, was interested to note that the pygmy-bodied SAS-1500 had a predecessor, the SAS-II; from what I can make out, it was built from ~ 1988-91:











                        The headstock looks minaturised, too, although I can't quite decide if the neck is a standard size.

                        • yeah used SAS-IIs show up on the Japanese web regularly.

                            I`ve been wondering about that model - there is one (exactly like the blue one a couple of posts up) that I`ve been tempted by every 4-5 months here in town.



                            For 4 years now, with startling regularity, the same guitar turns up at a one local recycle shop or other. I know it`s the same guitar because of a couple of dings in the headstock, and an odd wear pattern on the tailpiece.



                            It`s just recently come up for sale at the local Hard-Off. Again.



                            Perhaps it`s haunted or something.

                              Here's the webpage that the SAS-II pics are from:



                              http://www.hat.hi-ho.ne.jp/luke99/sas_long111.jpg



                              In Japanese, obviously.



                              The Google internet translator isn't very good, but I think the owner is saying something about the guitar being not so easy to play, perhaps an overly high string action?

                                it`s the guitar gods tryin` to tell you something. maybe you have to start channeling.

                                Why don`t you play that thing and see how it feels?
