I hope the production goes well. Love to see remakes of the odd SGs as well like the SG3c and SG80T. If you can make the tremolo collet and atm for the older SG, I would love to buy the parts.

I believe the SX-800B from Eastwood guitars has been received well.

https://eastwoodguitars.com/products/sx-800b

It can be found in the custom sortiment and the price went up since the crowdsourcing. ((i))

I hope this model will be available for years to come. :D

Looks like Eastwood guitars have a soft spot for vintage Yamaha guitars. :D
This is the second reissue of a Yamaha by Eastwood guitars.

The SA-15 also used by Link Wray is now considered for production.

Looks really nice in Sunburst.

Perhaps this is the reason Yamaha don't put out more interesting looking guitars these days. They have some sort of deal with Eastwood to reproduce these more interesting Yamaha designs?

Eastwood crowdsourcing a Yamaha SG-2C production run

Unread post by Buzzard » Sat Jun 30, 2018 12:45 pm

Yes, they've gone bananas, now opting the SG-2C "Flying Banana" for production as well.

These fantastically quirky guitars were made in Japan in the 1960's by Nippon Gakki and branded under Yamaha.
Fifty years later they are rare as hens teeth, so we thought it was time to bring back a tribute to them!

Well I already have a pair of SA15s as well as a SG3c but no SG2c so I'll have to contemplate.
