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.

NGD:SF1000 coming to my collection.

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 :)

Other then a nick on the back and some rust the pickup and the screw holes from the bigsby, its it great shape for its age. It lives of its reputation of versatile sound, nice glossing single coils and humbucking that can be both smooth and hot.
