I have an SG500B and have really gotten to liking it once I set the nut straight. Congrats on finding a nice inexpensive guit!
Once you have it for a while you may find yourself in the same position I am, looking for a SBG1000-3000. They are definitely LP slayers.
I tried the SG500B last year. It was good guit but somewhat below my expectation. My SG200 is clearly superior, and it also kills ALL epiphones and MANY current Gibsons, as far as SG and LP are concerned.
And a question for you: I remember you mentioned about your 904's "humbucker". You said it may not be a genuine humbucker but a double single-coil since it has 4 screws. As you can see my SG's humbuckers have 3. What does that mean? Thanks!
The 904 has a double single coil in the bridge. The "04" of 904 means 0 Humbucker, 4 singles. Your SG and my SA have the three screws to adjust not only the height but also the angle of the pick-up in relation to the strings. A nice Yamaha feature that I have not seen elsewhere.
Yeah it's weird I know. Didn't you sell yours? And what mod did you do in there? I see a coil tap switch.......and what were the pick ups?
Yup...i sold it awhile back. I have an sbg2000 now and it just wasn't getting played. I'm not sure what pups were in it......whoever had it before me added the coil split and changed the pups. Loved that guitar though......found it in a pawn shop when I was just getting back into guitar after an extended break.
Good trades with DCinDC and Used666

1985 then. I doubt the Taiwan factory was open in 1975.
You are right. It wasn't.
Besides, I know that the SG200s were MIJ when it came out in the mid-late 70s, but the later ones, maybe from 1982-83 on, were MIT. So that makes perfect sense.
Now, I wonder what kind of wood was used to build the 200s? According to the forum here and the reviews, the MIJ ones' body wood was mahogany, while MIT ones was agathis. Unfortunately there's no official info from Yamaha. Can you guys school me?
I've always like those Yamaha models. I wonder if it's possible that the guitar was made for an for/by an employee and he requested it without the brand-name (hey, it's a story you can use if you ever sell it).
It's obviously real. I'd actually pay more for it the way it is, but re-sale value might take a hit.
There's only two things I'm afraid of---women, and the the C7+9+11 Chord.
