Summary: This is a rare & beautiful vintage Yamaha SG-7 electric guitar that was made in Japan & has really stood the test of time. The gold hardware is still shiny and the condition is fantastic for an instrument of this age. This guitar ships in the original old-school Yamaha hard shell case & we ship it fully insured through Reverb.com.
Body: Offset double cutaway hardwood body with an extended treble horn & a wonderful blue finish.
Neck: Maple neck with a fully bound rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets, matching headstock, six-on-a-side tuning keys, 1 9/16” nut width, 24.75” scale length, dot inlays.
Pickups/Hardware: Original vintage Yamaha pickups - three single coil pickups (mid and bridge pickups are arranged in humbucker configuration), gold hardware, 3 knobs, 3-way switch, wonderful feeling tremolo system.
Cosmetics: Yamaha was really doing something right in 1967. The gold is bright & beautiful, the finish is elegant in strong. The rosewood fingerboard looks & feels incredible. There are some pick scratches & a few minor dings on the guitar body but you have to look hard to find them. There are some thin scratches in the finish on the upper horn & a few scratches on the back but overall this guitar is in great shape. The very tip of the whammy bar is black plastic & it has chipped off at the very end – you can’t see it in the photos but the very tip of the bar is broken off…..
Playability: This guitar has recently been set up with a new set of 10’s and the action is low, the truss rod was fully tested & the frets are in great shape with lots of life left in them. This instrument has a really great feeling fingerboard & lots of Japanese ingenuity that allows this instrument to be set up to play any way you like!
Weight: 7 lbs, 13 oz.
Case: This guitar comes with the original vintage Yamaha guitar case that shows more wear than the guitar does…..the case is a hardshell black case with metal lining & a cool interior.
