Yamaha SA-700

Post by mule »

Much better photos and description from the last sale post here: http://www.nzguitars.com/forum/viewtopi ... 49&t=34361

The mountain biking thread has wrought it's terrible influence so I'm needing to bring some money in to help offset an upcoming purchase. I'm not set on selling this so if it doesn't go to a forumite I might just hang on to it. I think most of the forum has owned this at some point so look left and you'll be able to get an opinion on it.

80's Yamaha semi-hollow with low-output humbuckers. Maple body, mahogany neck and centre block.

Lovely worn cherry red finish. There are some splotches - I took some pics out in the sun to try and highlight these but under normal light they're not really noticeable. A superficial gouge in the finish at the tail end, pictured. The SA stands for Super Axe so that's pretty cool. Comes with original hardcase.

$1000 is what I paid, so looking for the same.

It is a lovely one, if I had the cash I'd buy it back...
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

Know that guitar well. You will be pleased not to sell it once the purchase pain has faded.

So.... MTB; what you getting? :D

Ended up saving myself some cash by talking myself out of it. Rented a Trek Remedy for a day and took it up to the park. Had fun but came to the conclusion that I wasn't smitten enough to justify the money it would cost to get into it.

However I do have an amp purchase in mind... :)

Amps are good.....
And as long as you keep your fingers out of the back of them, they don't damage you as much as bikes.

Bump! I held on to this for a gig and was glad I did, but nowadays it's just not getting played - somebody should be enjoying it.

Full disclosure that since I posted this up I've encountered some very occasional cut-out when switching the pickup selector. Haven't been able to reproduce it reliably but it may be worth re-soldering.
