  • Yamaha SG Gallery

    Some folks asked for some nice pictures of my Yamaha SG guitars. Well here they are:

    YAMAHA SG1996 Limited Edition - 3Oth Anniversary - 1996

    * Made in Japan prior to 1996 to celebrate Yamaha's 30th anniversary of their SG guitar. This one is a SBG which would make it even more rare. With only 120 made there are only 30 or so that were sent to the west and labeled with the SBG trussrod cover. This one is serial number 079 and it is in absolutely mint condition. Originally purchased in 1996 as an investment. Never gigged and only rarely been played.

    Unlike the SG2000 model, this one has a gorgeous two piece flamed top. It also has coil taps and will be supplied with its original leather hard case

    This baby is in showroom condition. I have only seen one in my life that looks as nice and it sold for about 3k!!

    The ULTIMATE players guitar.

    These guitars are ridiculously good and from a players point of view match just about anything I have ever played and shames most.

    The SG 2000 was Yamaha Japan

        Which one is your favorite?

        Like I've mentionned before, the one I'd pick is the "real thing", that is, the three-piece plain top SG2000. I don't feel the Yamaha SG needs all the bling and abalone,etc. That's not what it's about for me, although Santana's Buddah inlayed SG is a beauty.

              I have one of those black SBG 3000s.

                I've always thought those were the best looking solid bodies on the planet. And all of those pics reinforce that belief.

                      I like the white SBG-3000 the best. I've had it for over 20 years.

                        I have one of those black SBG 3000s.

                        I think the black one is tied with the Santana one in terms of coolness and clean. Though they are separated by 20 years, you couldn't tell by looking at them.
