Pretty rare Yam for sale on Ebay

YAMAHA SESSION 2 912J GUITAR.jpg
Hard to tell the exact model of the Session ii range but I think seller has probably got this one right. First high range SE/Session I have seen for sale for a couple of years or more.

Me too might make offer after seeing how the auction develops. Looks a bit pricey but I suppose it's a lot of guitar for your money

Yeah and there is the rarity factor too but, zero bidders at the moment and it does have a "make an offer" option so, who knows, could be a bargain in there somewhere?

There are a bunch of SEs of different grades on Reverb including two 1212A models. One has been stripped to bare wood and shows a neck through design. The other is black. Interestingly the 1212 has a neck with the same 12th fret marker as the MSG and YSG with dots on all but the 12th.
Not a favorite design of mine but the one at the top of the thread i s very pretty. I do prefer the smooth contours as opposed to the square sided models.

The SE/Session guitars are extremely undervalued as Yamaha never got big in the superstrat market like Ibanez. I am hoping to get another SE 1200 level guitar for a steal again

The problem with Reverb is it is very USA focused so most of the "bargains" are out of our reach this side of the pond. Those SE's etc are either in Japan or Korea so when you add on the cost of shipping they are not really a bargain.

Yes it's very rare to see top end SEs for sale in the UK

There's exceptions but with used guitars and private sellers in the UK, the general pattern is UK only. Guess the market is big enough and I'm sure both guitars will sell easy :)

I have certainly shipped guitars t Ireland but Ebay sellers often look for what they perceive as the easiest or safest way many won't post at all.

Shipping from the UK is a weird thing. Never had an ebay seller on the EU mainland that wouldn't ship to the Netherlands. Had a lot of UK ebay sellers that would ship to the UK but not to the Netherlands. Never understood why. OK, sometimes the S+H they ask is ridiculous, but if the buyer wants to pay that, who cares. You have to pack the same way, bring it to the same postal office I assume etc. Don't know what's wrong with the UK postal system but often I get quotations that are 3 to 4 (!) times the costs I would pay the other way around, from the Netherlands to the UK.

I think the brexit won't help either.....
