Wanted 335 style guitar

Unread post by PJA » Thu Oct 18, 2018 2:27 pm

Hello, I'm new to this site. I'm after a 335 style guitar (minus Bigsby) and recently discovered Yamahas (I don't know why I've not looked at these before). If anyone has a SA series or similar in very good condition and would like to sale then please let me know I'd be interested to discuss, thank you Paul

PJA have you considered other brands such as the Ibanez AS range? AS73 maybe?

You can good deal on a 1000 series SA for under $1000. I got the SA 2200, the newest SA model that I am not sure if they still make or not, for around 1500$ but came with SD antiquities pickups. You can get a good deal on them but you get the better quality of a Gibson for half the price

335's are my weakness. Have quite a few (too many), but probably not practical to sell you one from the US.

You should look at Yamaha's SA 700 and 1000, as Asmikace said are great value - SA 1000 has an ebony board and excellent pickups as well. The old Yamaha's quality was really top notch.

Other brands to look for Burny RSA, Greco SA, Tokai ES. All different price points, many choices. If you find something you're not sure of post or PM me, some vary a lot by year. Old Navigator SA are great and generally reasonable, very different from the others. Momose is another that is over the top quality wise, but hard to find.

Epiphones are very popular as well, but I don't have any firsthand with them.

Here's a really good SA 1000. Seller is 100% reliable as well and guitar will come to you properly set up, any issues addressed before they send it. Ebony board so no CITES issues. Don't know what import duty would be. Pickups on SA 1000 are excellent. You can find it on their website as well, may be a better deal to go to them direct. International sale from them doesn't pay the local tax (8%) either.
