SE model list.docx
This is the beginnings of the next set of pages on my web site. Those of you who know my site will know the kind of thing I do if not have a look at my site (link in my signature). I intend to start an SE resource and later add the Sessions. This is the beginnings of my research, all gaps that you can fill in or all information, pictures etc gratefully received please note where I already have pretty full information from catalogues many of which have been provided by the members here. Thanks.
This will only make any sense if the file upload works if not I will have to try something else.

Thanks Peter there are several models designated M and MA the M stands for Maple neck and from what you say I guess the A indicates active pickups the guitars tend to be referred to as Sessions in the Japanese catalogues (though not always) and SEs in the English catalogues but are essentially the same guitars. I have co-ordinated more info and will be updating the working sheet soon. Interested to know if any of these guitars were made in Japan all the ones I have seen and all literature suggests that these were made in Taiwan, does anyone know of any that are not MIT?

Made a start you can see the first three pages here http://www.alston-family.co.uk/SEs/indexse not public yet so can only be accessed this way. Thoughts appreciated. Still really need info particularly on the 150 250 350 450 and 600

Cheers Bill.

I just sent you some more SE stuff, hope you can use some of it. :D

Since I have only owned a SE-912A (still got it), SE's are not my strongest point.
:idea: I hope other members will chip in with pics and scans they may have in store. :wink: :idea:

Like always, you do a good job of the info, GREAT resource for anyone interested in detailed guitar info. (Y)

Regards
Peter

Hi Bill,
Nice work!!! I hope to be able to contribute to your work. My first Yamaha electric was an SE-350 ssh and I have collected several in this line that I will post pictures of later. While all mine are made in Taiwan I have an SE 700 on my radar as it was a made in Japan model with an Ebony fret board. My favorites though are the 1200 series, while still made in Taiwan are their high end offerings. The ones I have are an SE-1203A and an SE-1220. I know of an SE-1212 and an SE-1212A which are an ssh arrangement. (A of course active Pups) While I don't have manuals for any of these I have found this link to be helpful. http://www.yamaha.com/apps/guitararchiv ... chive2.asp
