SG2000 Deep Purple

Unread post by JDZ » Wed Nov 15, 2017 1:46 pm

I've seen a few blue and purple 1980 SG2000's.
One of the Japanese vendors ads indicated 220 were made in blue and 600 in Deep Purple.

Here's an '83 as well: https://elitevintageguitars.com/categor ... a-sg-2000/

Does anyone know what years these were made and if those production numbers are accurate?
Were they domestic Japanese model or sold in the US and UK as well?
How sought after are these models?

Deep Purple - Made in Japan is a great live album - so an SG2000 DP is also deep purple made in Japan 8O .

Wow, that color is to die for.
I wish for more purple guitars. :D

I've seen a few of these come up for auction. A striking color for sure. Blue is my favorite color but given the choice ( and the $$$) I would probably go with the purple. It does have royal connotations.

Would have been a perfect guitar for the Late Prince (-:
I've also seen a few similar coloured SG's for sale over the years. I'll hunt around and see what I can come up with.

Completely forgot about that album. Used to be one of my favourites. Now you reminded me I must dig it out :)
