This is a killer playing and sounding all original Yamaha SG1000 guitar made in Japan. The little brother of the SG2000 differing only as having a set neck like a Les Paul and no brass block under the bridge. These are super fast playing high gain guitars fitted with coil taps and always feature a low action. 1977 was the 2nd year of issue and are very hard to find from this period. Basically the same construction as a Les Paul Standard but with more deluxe features. This is the same model used by John McGeoch with Magazine & Siouxsie And The Banshees.
