My First SG - Yamaha SG 1500

Unread post by Jnoake »

Hi All!

After always listing after one I finally bought my first SG a 1980?? SG 1500 in walnut. It’s the 1st spec with a sustain block, ebony board, maple cap and set neck. It’s absolutely incredible and I haven’t put it down since! It originally belonged to the guitarist from The Carpettes and made an appearence on The Old Grey Whistle Test -

Cool! Lovely SG with a bit of history to it.

Looks like the case bears most of the evidence - thankfully the gaffa tape on the pickup selector seems to have come off without leaving any marks.
