2008 Yamaha SGV-700 Flying Samurai (Rare, Discontinued)

Based heavily on the illustrious design of the Yamaha SG-5A from the 1960s, The SGV-700 is a modern reissue of the classic design, made in Taiwan and sold exclusively in Japan. These are now discontinued so a rare bird indeed! These guitars are always outstanding quality and have fantastic attention to detail, they really capture the essence of the 1960s Flying Samurais and it is certainly difficult to differentiate from the originals.

This one is in exceptionally good condition for it's age. Aside from the odd dent and scratch, this guitar is virtually unplayed! Frets have almost no wear on them, the pearl green finish features a fantastic deep sparkle and the guitar plays and functions perfectly. It features it's original Yamaha single coil and humbucker setup with master volume, tone and a pickup blend as well as a 3 way switch for maximum control. The pickups have a wonderful chime to them with plenty of frequency response. It's been freshly setup with a nice low action. Ships with a gig bag.
