NGD: Yamaha SA 60

Unread post by Asmikace » Sat Aug 11, 2018 6:53 pm

As much as I wanted a SA 90, someone on Facebook Guitars For Sale group had a mint SA 60 with original case, truss rod tool, and manual for sale for a good price. Only problem is one of the tone knobs grip rings is missing but shouldn't be too hard to find a replacement. Here are the pictures the seller sent me as it should come in next week. I am at hotel away from with only my SG 2100s and miss having my SA 2200 and been jonesing vintage Yamaha semi body style I need to play around with.

HNGD, looks good.

Once you have the feel of it, let's know how it sounds and handles.

Looks like a fantastic catch. I love it when a lot of case candy comes with a vintage guitar. Show us some more pics when she arrives.

Nice one, they changed to that case at the very end, so your serial number must be 30,000 or so....
I am still tempted to create bone saddles for my SA60 and SA90 as I don't think the plastic ones are good enough and neither look good.
And yes, more photos please

Got it today. Other thab missing that ring round the tone knob, its pretty untouched. The strings are rusty and need to get my favorite strings for semi hollow but sounds very good. Probably one of the best early 335 copies from Japan.
