    Default Yamaha SG / SBG


    ^ SG 2000

    Has anybody else seen or played these guitars? From what I've seen and heard, I really want one, and it's probably gonna be my favorite guitar once I get it. The reviews at Ultimate Guitar average a 9.2 for the SG 2000.


    The vinatage SG 1000s 2000s and 3000s average in the $800-$1200 range, where the brand new SBG's retail at $4000+


    Famous players?


    Carlos Santana


    Colin Hay (lead singer of Men At Work)




    Stuart Adamson (of Big Country)

    I also know that Styx used them, and Bruce Watson (Big Country), Ron Strykert (Men At Work) and Alex Lifeson (Rush) may have used them as well.

    That`s a old pic of Santana, even though he did play a Yamaha, his primary is a Paul Reed Smith Santana II.

    Yeah, it wasn't his primary, but he did appear on Guitar Player with it. Also, he actually worked with Yamaha to improve the sound, such as adding brass plates and such.
