Re: NGD of Yamahas

Lovely guitars indeed.

I'd love to have a SJ like that but they are very rare in Europe. Overhere almost every SJ for sale is a SJ550HR :(.

Never played a SE with that kind of tremelo (not a tremelo guy), but she sure looks great.

That's a great looking guitar and it looks in fantastic condition too.

Enjoy her.

Yamaha G50-112

Added a new old Yamaha amp to my collection. A G50-112, or 'Fifty112' as printed on the front plate. First series G type amp. production started in the mid 70'ies. Condition is OK for it's age but can't tell you how she sounds yet, there's an issue somewhere in the pre amp. Couldn't fix it yet. Has ...

Re: SA 700 Custom Order ?

Looks like a modified AE2000 fretboard to me. Two inlays added, somewhat longer, and missing the 'tip' at the body side.

Same era guitar.

Or just a custom job with a SA2000 type ebony board with AE2000 inlays.

Re: Yamaha Amps

Thanks, None of that looks like my preamp PCB I'm afraid :( . I clearly have a problem in the preamp. Changed some bad leaking electrolytic capacitors, but that didn't solve the problem till now. Working through the tone stack now. I bought this one becourse of the great cosmetic condition, but it h...

Re: Yamaha Amps

Any of you guys have a G50 112 (first series) service manual or pcb lay out? I do have the schematics.

Leon

BTW: weird thing. I got some much older solid state Yamaha amps. No problems with capacitors there (yet). In this G50 112 some electrolytic capacitors were very bad.

Re: Yamaha L15A

Cool, let us know what's she's like :)

BTW: as we said, the L15A seems the Taiwan sister of the L10, but the L20A looks very much like L15's sister. I took a look at recent L10 and L15 prices....... some are ridiculous :?

Re: Yamaha L15A

Catalog has the L-15A as a two piece back. Did that change as well? The L15 stayed 3 piece. The L15A had a 2 piece back. So it's not a change in 1980 to the L15. In a way the L15A shows the most similarities with the L10 from after 1980. Nowadays a L10 would cost you twice the money a L15A would co...

Two nice examples of the different L15 models: Up to 1980 (or somewhere around that time), back and sides specified by Yamaha as Jacaranda: res_b2d1e46227237f8ba48d3dbca59a60f7294b9f90.jpg res_6710a2156d036802e6d1ceda5e6ddecaafc61659.jpg And after 1980, with what is specified as rosewood 649eb2e4f2e...

Re: NGD Yamaha SJ800

Great guitar. Why do you keep buying guitars like this one and the earlier SX that are just the ones missing in my collection :? .

But, congrats with this great looking SJ.

I think I should be looking into the way buyee works too .......

No idea on year.
Looks like some catlogs I have. I think there's G-71 somewhere on the back (bottom, right side), after that a number. In most cases the first two digits of that number is the date it was printed. So let's hope it starts with somewhere between 78 and 84 :roll: .

Re: Yamaha guitars you would love to see a model run or reissued

Hello everyone, just to bring some discussion here. OK, let's discuss 8) I think Yamaha has a bad reputation on reissues. At least some of them. Especially reissues of vintage guitars, or anniversary series etc. I think they once reissued the most famous and known vintage acoustic: the FG180. And t...

Re: Yamaha L15A

Do you happen to know the difference between L15 and L15A? Domestic vs. Export? Made in Japan vs Taiwan? The L series was for the domestic market. It appears next to the FG's in Japanese catalogs around 1975/1976. No L series around that time in EU or US catalogs. First sighting of the LxA series, ...

Re: Yamaha L15A

Do you happen to know if these were lacquer or poly finish? I have an old catalog, 1971 I think, has same pic you posted. Specs in back don't mention what the finish is. This L-series was produced from 1978 to 1984 so I'm afraid the catalog is somewhat younger. The finish is poly I think. Yamaha us...

Re: Yamaha L15A

Having said that I just did a Google and there is indeed a species of spruce called "Picea glauca, the white spruce" and is apparently native to North America. Yep, good work, that must be it ((i)) Checked one of my old catalogs with these guitars. They refer to using Woods from all corners of the ...
