Pulling this one up again - I should mention I got to play one of the recent SBG3000 reissues for the american market that was celebrating the anniversary of Yamaha's electric guitar business. What a beauty. I literally got to play it right before its new owner showed up to pick it up and pay for it. Ouch. I think it was #32 out of 40 or something.

84 SG1500 MIJ. All I did to it was change out the gold hardware, then later decided to give the frets a full level/crown job. An awesome les paul substitute. Happy to have it.
The electronics are all original I belive, no desire to change that stuff out. Sounds awesome.
As an owner of a top-end Yamaha ES-335 and Strat copies (SA2200 and Pacifica 904), I'd love to 'complete the set' with a vintage SG... like JKater said, the original SG2000 (with the brass sustain block under the bridge) would be the ideal model.
* 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!!
