YAMAHA SG-5
Made a offer under a grand and they accepted. I love the blue colored SG-5 and it comes with the goodies. I am going to have to do some downsizing once I come home after this project.

I couldn't pass it up. That guitar has what I want for a 60s SG; three single coils, beautiful color, all the parts, original case, and case candy. I didn't want to buy another guitar soon after my SF1000 but its not everyday you get a guitar that comes with everything you want for the right price.

I am away from home till July and no choice to mail it home. Its going to be a nice toy when I get home

You could send it to me for a month I promise I'll take good care of it.
It's beautiful and my favorite color. Mines red which is acceptable but it ain't blue boo hoo.
Mega score.

I remember you getting it. I think all four colors of the SA is really nice and there is something magical with Candy Apple/Fiesta Red on 60s guitars. I would be happy to own a SA5 in White or even Black but still super happy to have it in blue.

I manage to make it home yesterday and got to the guitar. The seller didnt clean it and left the nasty strings so I spent the day cleaning it and putting new strings. It does have usual wear like some ding and cracks around the tremolo and thin frets but it surprising plays great. It didnt come with an original strap but I bought one months ago for cheap. Still happy espeically for an impluse buy

Congrats ((i)) ((i)) ((i))

Can never understand people who sell things and don't clean them before sending out. I would never do that.
