Yamaha SG 500 (Translucent Red, 1978)Selling off from my Elite Vintage Guitars collection my Yamaha SGs, so here on offer a vintage 1970s Red Yamaha SG 500 Serial number starting with  00....... Great electric guitar with a good solid feel, despite the fair weight, it plays light and fluid and has been set up with low action....The guitar is approx 40 years old, all original and despite its age and has some genuine patina and play wear, and has a definite vintage vibe and oozing mojo. 
These Yamahas were made since 1976 and in either translucent red or black. These are good solid guitars, although less well known than the more famous Yamaha SG 2000 and SG 1000. However, anyone who wants a Yamaha SG and does not want to fork out a "Kings Ransom" will be pleasantly surprised by this guitar. Postage reflects shipping and shipping insurance
