Put a bid one this one and was the only one. Hopefully the shipping will be reasonable as well.

Good luck on the Auction, I see it ended and hopefully you won. It is a nice looking guitar.
I'd be curious to know what it costs above and beyond the price of the guitar for shipping and handling. I've seen guitars I liked but not sure about other costs.

This is my first time using a shipping warehouse for JYA with buyee. I am assuming it will cost no more then $200 so it all together, it should be still a good price especially how desirable and costly SF 1000 are going for.

Noticed final price translated to £365 in UK's battered currency. Last two I saw on ebay went for £655 and £781 so definitely a bargain even with shipping.

It arrived at the Buyee place today. The total fees and shipping cost was around $180 with extra protection. So for under $700 total, it still a reason price for a SF1000.

Considering the higher prices posted on Reverb and Ebay for vintage Yamaha stuff, you can get a good deal as long you set aside at most $200 for shipping and fees. Maybe next time I can score a SA-90 or AE-18, I love vintage Yamahas with ebony fretboards.

Also selling my MG-MIII guitar at the selling page to downsize if anyone wants to look.

HGD for me. I had to replace the rusty strings and will have to clean a pots, its probably not been played for along time. In very good shape despite the tremolo holes. I decided to try out the bigsby style tremolo while it needs adjustments, I really like the sound. I will be going back to my guitar honeymoon.

Glad to see it arrived safe and sound. Looking good, especially with the Bigsby back on board :)
