Offered for auction is a seldom seen, second generation Yamaha solid body electric, the SG-40. In fact, any of these second generation solids are quite rare and if my research is correct, they were produced for only one year... 1972. This one sports a vibrant red finish with matching headstock, a deeply carved single cutaway body, a bolt-on mahogany neck with bound rosewood fretboard, pearloid dot inlays, 22 frets, 2 humbucking pickups, adjustable terminator type hard-tail bridge, nifty original Yamaha tear-drop tuners. Built in Japan.
The neck scale length is 24-3/4" with a nut width
of 1-3/4". The neck is easy-playing with a comfortable action. The guitar has a few
dings & dents but in excellent shape overall and completely
original. The humbucking pickups on these early Yamaha instruments sound quite good
actually, and this one is well worth considering, either as a visibly
unique instrument for the working musician, or most certainly to the Yamaha
collector. Will ship in a non-original soft gig bag.
I have 100% positive feedback in all transactions I have conducted over the past thirteen years with buyers and sellers on ebay. I know how to package an instrument safely for shipping, so bid with confidence. I would be more than happy to comply with any reasonable request to photograph additional details should a potential buyer request it. Any taxes or charges applicable to the importation of this bass, are the buyer's responsibility. Please note that I only charge the actual calculated amounts given to me by the shipping company or post office for shipping & insurance (optional) (based on an in-hand quote from the shipping company).
