  • Show me your Yamaha SG (gibson fans this is not for you)

    There are many guitar players out there who have the same love for Yamaha SG guitars that I do. I have owned more than a few Gibson SGs and Les Pauls, but I always seem to come back to this classic.

    My collection consists of:

    1 - SBG1996 30th Anniversary #79 of 120 (NearMint)
    2 - SG-2004 Amber Quilt Top from Santana's personal collection (NearMint) only 20 made
    3 - SG-2000 Cherry Sunburst 1984 (Very Good++ 'slight fogging on rear")
    4 - SBG-3000 Cream 1983 (Very Good+ 'top and neck and back are clean)
    5 - SBG-3000 Black sprinkle 1984 (NearMint)

    Here are my Yamaha SG axes. The only one in this set that is not rare is the all time favorite SG/SBG2000. I will post some better pictures with close ups and lighting later...

    Right to left:
    SG2000, SG2004, SBG1996, SBG3000

    Very nice collection! I have had this SG2000 since 1976 when I bought it. I chose it over a LP custom..the Yamaha was $50 MORE than the LP at the time and was worth it. Many thousands of hours and miles it is retired. I just got another Parker to replace it as a backup. This one will be available to someone who wants a player and a fine guitar soon...


    it has a shaved neck, refret, Seymore Duncans, coil taps/phase. Was once wired for stereo.

    original case...


    neck...


    buckle rash..


    Great guitar.

      Very nice guitars..yours are lovely.

      I remember playing an SG2000 at a trade show back in 1978 or so and it was the first Japanese guitar I played that kinda changed my perception of Japanese guitars...it was THAT good!

      I'd still like to own one....

          You guys are killing me. I've always wanted an SG2000 since I first saw one in the 70's. The good news is that they're making them again.

              Here's mine, a Yamaha SBG1200. It's a very solid guitar. Weighs a ton but I have a comfortable strap for it.

              It came with some battle scars so I got it for a song on craigslist. I bought it for the lowest price out of all my guitars.

                    Thanks.

                    There was a chunk of finish about the size of a dime missing from the low E side of the neck, right down to the wood. I drop filled it with super glue that I purchased from Stew Mac, leveled it with a razor blade and sanded it flush.



                    The repair is visible (I don't think you can make it invisible with a poly finish) but it feels flush now so it doesn't bother me when I'm playing.

                    There are some dings on the edge of the body where the finish is gone.

                    But as you said, the face looks mint so I was very happy with the purchase.

                    I tell you, I almost ran out of the seller's home I got such a deal on it. I felt like I stole it.

                          I like that it has a three piece top. To me, a "real" SG2000 (or 1200) has a three piece top. That's how they designed it. And believe me, Yamaha cut no corners when they designed this one. Of all the guitars from the OP, the one I would pick is without a question the one on the left. Here's an ad from the time where you can see plainly what the top of the real thing looks like:
