I've had several Yamaha SG's over the years. Sadly most of them have gone now - my rolling guitar collection has been reduced to 5 (hard to justify keeping 20 guitars lying around). Of that 5, 2 are SG's, one is an SG-3000 (given to me as a gift) and the other is this SG-175. It may be rolling off too soon, as it's in such good condition that I rarely play it.

Here is my unusual, green SBG2000. (It looks black in the photos, but it is dark green.) I found it about five years ago in a Salvation Army shop in Brooklyn, New York. At first, I spotted just the case leaning behind the check-out counter. It looked like it might be something interesting, so I asked to look at it. When I opened it up, the guitar inside was revealed to be very beat up (I'll never understand how the previous owner could have so abused a guitar of this weight), but I could tell it was something special. I decided to buy it, take it home, and clean it up. It cost me $100.

This thread isn't helping.
A guitar shop of some note near me has a SBG1000 - brand new and it's almost $800 off the price it originally was. Priced to sell I guess.
The thing I can't get over is how perfect the action is. It's perfect - probably the lowest action I've played on a production guitar and still be able to bend and not have any buzzes or problems.
I told the guy that and he said "thanks, I set up the action on that one". I think a lot of it had to do with it was a great guitar and the guy knew what he was doing.
Still. I don't have tons of money to throw around right now and the last thing I need is a new guitar but I really want that one.
