Re: Yamaha CJ32

Great looking guitar.

Must be very special sounding. Exept the spruce top and the ebony fretboard all maple. Solid maple back and sides, and maple neck.

Yamaha also used maple on their FG75 and FG110. Both laminated. They sound very special. Great clear bright tone. What about this CJ32?

Re: SA2000 series

Have a SA2000 myself, like the pickups. I know a lot of SA2000 users changed the stock PU's, so clearly they weren't everyones taste. As with many old and vintage guitars most people now are looking for one with original PU's. I get a lot of questions on that. So it's good you've still got the origi...

Re: Strange/Unique Dynamic Guitar

Looks like a heavy modded No 2 to me. Yamaha never made a 12 string Dynamic Guitar. Looks like someone put two headstocks together to make a 12 string guitar. Tailpieces like that were never used on acoustics. The bridge is not Yamaha either. The No 2 as many Dynamic Guitars had a white dot on the b...

Re: 1988 SG2000 Specifications

Thank you sir, I'm a newbie to the older Yamaha guitars. Is this page from a USA catalog? My guitar is a cherry burst and that color isn't a option in that page. Yes these colour options are in the export catalogs of Yamaha, so also in the US. They offered a Cherry Sunburst up to 1986, but that was...

Based upon the specs from a 1988 catalog the SG2000 had a Urea nut:

Re: Shipping from the UK to EU mainland

Unbelievable, Saul, thanks for the great tip ((i)) DPD Classic European. Only 14 GBP :shock: The seller couldn't believe the price was right, but today they delivered an acoustic guitar in a big Hiscox case at my door. Just been on the road for 3 days, all the way from Haywards Heath. Sometimes I ge...

Re: Newer Model L Series LL10

That's what I like about dating Yamaha's by serial number. It never matches the known systems 8-) Just some thoughts: Looked up some LL10's on the www. Seems that the early ones are MIJ, the later ones MIT. The numbering of all LL10's match the 6 digit system used in Japan during those years. Perha...

Re: Newer Model L Series LL10

Hi, You can check the spesc in an earlier post in this topic. I added a page from an old catalog. The original MSRP was 775 usd. That would make it a "upper medium" guitar back in those days. As with allmost all L-type guitars during those years playability is great. I agree with Saul: most probably...

Re: Fg335 body and APX 500 neck

Hi, It would sure make a great experiment. But I doubt you will get lucky. Don't have a recent APX buy I think they are the same neck shape my old APX20 has. The playability is influenced by the fact the APX neck is wider that f.i. a FG335 neck. Even if you manage to swap the necks that will give tr...

Re: Shipping from the UK to EU mainland

Any thoughts from you guys from the UK what's the best courier to ship guitars from the UK to the European mainland.

I was trying to convice a guy to ship me a guitar I want. He looked at a comparison site and that gave results that vary between around £12 - £100+ :? .

Re: NGD: Washburn N4

Great guitar. Never knew they also came in sunburst.

Saw Nuno Bettencourt live with Extreme in 2014. Great guitarist. I was an Extreme fan in the early 90'ies. Tried a N4 back then and considered buying. Didn't work out. Seems I can't get used to these tremelo's :? .

Re: Sg1000 identify year built

2007 indeed,


Q stands for 0,
N for 7,
M for 6

That would make it a guitar made in June 2007.
