A bit expensive indeed. They are pretty rare but the ones I saw getting sold did between 500 and 700 usd. Perhaps an extra 80 to 100 if the original case is included.

Always be aware of bridge issues with this line of Yamaha's. The bridge tends to sag. Looks like there was an original production problem with these bridges (just not properly designed) or the casted metal is getting weaker over the years.

I got my SA 60 last year for around 650$ dollars shipped from japan with original case and manual. Really great guitars but the SA 90 are the fancier models with the Ebony fretboard. If I didn't get my SA 2200, I would have gotten a 90 if I tried hard enough. I see alot of 60-70s SA over priced but the guitar listed isn't the most overvalued on I saw.

I don't have an issues with my SA 60 bridge but I not looking forward in it happening. I really dig the tailpiece and wouldn't want to have to replace it.
