Yamaha AE web pages

Unread post by balston11 » Sun Oct 07, 2018 7:33 pm

I have done some work on setting up some AE pages on my web site please have a look. Please let me know if you think (or know) anything I have said is wrong. I am particularly keen to get more detail on the various 1200S models, the dates and the differences between them. The net result is that I really want an AE preferably an 18 and a 1200T

Nice add, I hope to get a vintage AE guitar for my 70s guitar collection. I want that AE 18 the most.

Also I know with some of the models into the 1000 series have a problem with celluloid pickguard that gas and damages the guitar. I seen some with a stain where the pickguard was to pickup corrosion.

One that appeals most to me is a blonde AE11 with the old pickups.

You may want to add that the AE2000 has a carved spruce top, whereas the AE1200 has a laminated one. ;)

Cheers, keep up the good work on the website!

Just noticed I've been pressing the "thumbs up" icon thinking it did something different... sorry about that.

The "Thumbs Up" is just so you can thank the poster - if you feel a question you asked has been answered -

or you have received some advice that was "good" . . . or even that you just "agree" with what's being said (Y)

Oh, that was correct then... thanks! :D



Bill, I remember vaguely that at least one of the 1200S models also had a carved top, or at least, a solid one, unlike the "regular" 1200.
Not sure where I got this info from, but I remember thinking the top should be carved or solid when I got the 1200S, but it wasn't. And I find it very unlikely that the previous owner would change the headstock label just for that, so there's probabably variations between the same model.

Here it is... one catalog has the 2000 as "solid planned spruce top" and the 1200 as "arched solid spruce top", and on the other it's "solid machine carved spruce top" for both 2000 and 1200S.

Hiya Bill,
I now have a blonde AE-11 and can report the following....
Nut width is 43 mm, not 41 as per your website.
The early models had black plastic pickup covers with 'silver' mounting rings. The later models came with chrome plated plastic covers with black rings.

Their serial numbers are part of the ¬32000 or so units manufactured of the following models: All SA models from 5 to 90, all AE from 11 to 1800 and perhaps even some SG models.

I just found this AE-11 in red.... which is not a standard colour. Looks blimmin nice and completely original IMO. What do you think?

Hi Sean

Beautiful guitar and great information. I'll do a bit of digging around see if I can find more and update the web pages. Thanks

Had a bit of a look around and found
1967 model with Black pups chrome surround
1968 English catalogue shows Black pups chrome surround
another 1967 model with Black pups chrome surround
1973 English catalogue shows chrome pickups with black surround
So it looks like the difference is between earlier and later models however there is guitar on guitars japan.com which they say is 1967 but has the later pups, the serial number is 26281 how would that figure with your records?, perhaps they have the date wrong
I have seen the red one you mention but only that one all references say Sunburst or natural but if you look at guitarsjapan.com there are 2 AE11s in sunburst one is a definite brown/tobacco sunburst and the other is a very reddish sunburst.
Yes the nut is 43mms don't know what I was doing there.
