  • Weird Ass Yamaha NGD (or I officially have a serious problem)

    In an effort to ease my move, I've been trying to unload my 12 extraneous guitars. Yesterday I finally sold one of my basses. Today? Today I was on craigslist for literally 10 mins and ended up with this weirdo.

    Strings were rustier than the pg screws are (and pickup magnets!)
    What a funky lil guitar though. I had to right?!

        Been wanting one of those. I don't care what everybody says, you scored.

          Yup... it seems there was some good LSD in Japan in the 60's. Yamaha came out with a bunch of crazy designs in those heady days.

          Oddly enough some of these older Yamahas are rising in value these days. Cool score, btw!

          It's an EGV103, if I'm not mistaken?

          How am I expected to write my signature in this space?

            That's a 90s reissue of the SG from the 60s - though the model you have is an adaption made to be much like a Strat. Original 60s models like the SG5A had a top mount trem, bound neck, and different pickups. (3 single coils, though 2 were together and there was a blend knob.)

            I've owned both the guitar and bass versions from the 60s - pretty funky stuff. Regret selling the guitar, though the bass I didn't gel with so much.

            I'd pick up a 90s reissue just for the samarai headstock. Score.

                  I had one of those in red. I believe it was the SC300T. I kind of wish I still had it. I gave it to my brother and he completely destroyed it.

                    SC300T had the same headstock, but was a product of the 80s, with a different body shape.

                      I love those. Is it a newer one? What's the model?

                      I fail to see the problem you mention in the thread title.

                      If you're looking for a financial problem, you can buy the $9,000 version too:

                          Yeah it's an egv103. Pretty sure these sold new with amp for $100 so ya based on what i paid it has appreciated but i doubt this low end model will ever be worth much. Those originals look super cool!

                          I realized later i turned the tuners the wrong way. I guess because of the headstock shape the string is supposed to turn around the high side, unlike a strat or tele.

                            That is a cool guitar!
                            Good deals with - Yarbicus, CBH5150, BozzofAngels, Alvin Wilson, Harris Quinn

                            Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.
