7 Day Listing - lower price and now with postage option after several requests

I am selling my vintage Yamaha SG500 electric guitar which is in virtually new condition. The guitar is the very rare gold top finish which is normally only found on the much higher spec SG1500 and SG2000 ranges which normally sell in vintage form for between £1500 and £2000.

The SG1500 range is now in manufactured again under a different model number and they retail starting at around £1500.

If you are looking at this listing I really don't need to tell you how good these guitars are. You already know. This particular guitar is virtually unmarked. There is minimal (can't see any!!) fret wear which is consistent with very little use the guitar has had. Just had a set up and plays extremely well. There are 2 tiny marks on the main body (I will add more detailed pics later today) but I really think you would struggle to find a cleaner and more original example. This had pride of place in my SG collection for this particular model.

Also included is the hard case shown in the first picture - although not an original yamaha it is of the period and houses the guitar very nicely.

I am in no rush to sell and will only accept offers very close to the price advertised.

This particular model of SG500 is extremely rare now and this is an opportunity to buy one in fantastic condition considering its age.  The serial number of the guitar OO07093 which means it is either a 1988 or 1998 model - Yamaha repeat their serial numbers every 10 years - more likely to be a 1998 model I think 

Will post for £30 fully insured UK mainland only - anywhere else (Highlands and Islands) please ask for a shipping quote before bidding. Pick up and payment in person is also very welcome to avoid any potential damage in transit but I will pack well for peace of mind. My tel number is 07511216036 if you need any further information - this is a UK only auction and please no 0 bidder offers without prior contact with a uk landline number - your offer will be simply rejected if you do not make contact first. 

Please do not send payment until you have contacted me after end of auction.

Also after several requests from overseas bidders when selling the last one of these guitars I had for sale I am prepared to pack the guitar for an additional fee of £10 so that overseas bidders/buyers can arrange their own courier collection on a convenient day.
