Yamaha SG-12A

Unread post by jordanvzyl » Thu May 16, 2019 10:59 am


I recently joined this forum seeking help with regards to a guitar I recently acquired. It was a close friend of mine who owned the guitar and was recently passed on to me. I know that these guitars were made from around 1967-1971 and they're pretty hard to come across. Would anyone know how to find the exact date that this guitar was made? It would be very appreciated. The guitar has been sitting for a couple years and needs a good clean up but its pretty clean for an old girl.

Hi Jordan,

That's an amazing guitar. And rare indeed. The serial number will make it possible to narrow down the year of production. I assume it's somewhere on the fretboard near the highest frets.
