Musikmesse 2010: Yamaha launch new SG electric guitars
Yamaha launch 3 new SG models developed in direct response to player requests, revealed at Musikmesse 2010.
Launched in 1974 the Yamaha SG was the guitar that proved that Japanese guitars should be taken seriously. With the classic SG2000 developed in association with Carlos Santana.
SG has long been a players favourite thanks to a combination of incredible sound, outstanding playability and individual styling.
As part of Yamaha's 'Generation Rock' direction for electric guitars and basses, 2010 sees the launch of 3 new SG models.
Developed in direct response to player requests and what guitarists want Yamaha SGs to be in 2010.
Using direct feedback from Yamaha's London, LA and Tokyo Artist Relations offices, the guitars are specced with the custom-shop parts that artists want and need and finished with new simpler cosmetics that players have been asking for.
All featuring Japanese handmade set-neck construction, African Mahogany body and neck and maple top.
New SGs feature totally updated no-compromise specifications to finally make the stadium-ready guitars that Yamaha have been producing for artists available to the public.
New Body Carve - The new SG1800 models feature a deeper carve in the guitar's top for improved tone and a more contemporary, custom-shop look.
New Headstock Design - Smaller headstocks with simpler inlays give a more modern look.
Rosewood fingerboard - All new SG models feature a premium rosewood fingerboard as opposed to the classic SG's ebony
Side-mounted Jack Socket - The output jack on the new SGs is moved from the front of the guitar to the side
Bracket-mounted scratchplate - Right-angle scratchplate mounting makes removal easier without unsightly holes in the guitar's top.
Custom-shop spec - TUSQ nut, CTS pots, Switchcraft toggleswitches, TonePros bridges, locking Grover Machinheads and SKB cases.Posted on 24 Mar 2010 09:13 to category : Instruments News
