Can I be in two clubs? I just posted about my beloved 72 Yamaha SA50T in the Hollow body club. Nippon Gakki built, ES330 style with twang and style!
Bought it off CL for $200 and Eldelry consigned it for $800; luckily sellers remorse made me get her back home. I'm in love...

I'm in

S-50A

Kicking around a closet at my folk's house since the mid-70's, no one plays guitar. I rescued it when I started trying to learn. Cleaned up nice and sounds really good.

I have a APX-5 NA Yamaha.
It was one of my gigging guitars for years.

I've got two of them, love 'em!

1. FG140, 1970s red label



Got that one for 35 dutch guilders (approx. 15 euros) in the early 1990s. Still can't believe my luck on that one. It's battered as hell but has the warmest sound I ever heard on an acoustic.

2. FG420-12



Was looking for a 12 string for some time and found this beaut, stringless, in a second hand shop. Used it as a half-twelve-stringed guitar for some time but it's in its original shape again.

APX7. Has seen better days, but still plays sweet and sounds great when plugged in


The little sticker on the back was from the store it was sold from...
Musgroves, Hay St, Perth,

The battery setup, however... what a PITA

I'm a huge fan of Yamaha acoustics at all price points. The electric stuff is good too, but mostly the midline to high end electrics.

My main guitar is an early 80s Yamaha sa2000s. 355 style with ebony board,solid spruce top and coil splittable humbuckers.The build quality is first rate and the two pickups together in single coil mode is tele-esque.A very versatile guitar I keep going back to.

I just doubled the size of my Yamaha herd. After a year or so in remission my GAS flared up badly during the annual two month summer band layoff. This resulted in my acquiring a 1984 SG-3000 from Ishibashi, and then I went to a warehouse sale and bought a half-price AES720.

Here's the starting grid:



PAC-1511MS, AES-720, SG-3000 and SGV-800 in the back row.

I think that brings the overall guitar pile up to 41. Gonna have to haul 'em out of the crannies and count 'em...

Pretty much every Yammie I ever owned or played was a fine instrument. I've had a couple of their acoustics and a couple of their electrics, and all were phenomenal deals. Really quality stuff.

At the moment, this is the only Yamaha instrument I have and unfortunately I am forced to sell it:







I hate to see it go. Plays great, looks cool as can be, perfect for surf or retro OR modern stuff, and has as sweet Stratty sound as any strat-type guitar I know of.

I like that model, but it is unavailable in my neck of woods. Can you tell me something about the neck thickness? This is the deal maker or braker factor for me. The chunkier the better.

This model hasn't been available anywhere in about 10 years.

I THINK that Yamaha has some almost "custom shop" level SGV reissues available now, but only in Japan and at a pretty high price.

I'm with you--I much prefer chunky necks. This one isn't overly chunky, but it sure isn't thin. Feels nice and solid. Very comfortable. It's thicker than most Strat necks I've played.

I've been playing the same FG340 since 1979! It has a large "V" shaped neck and is the guitar that got me hooked on boat necks! The USACG boat neck that I just put on my Strat is very similar.

That's my Steinberger GT-Pro. The travel guitar that never really goes anywhere 'cos I get nervous walking through an airport carrying something that looks like a shotgun :D

my first guitar was a yamaha! cant recall the model, but it was a massive acoustic (are they called dreadnaughts?) i used to carry it around everywhere when i was in school.

my dad has it now and wanted to display it on his loungeroom wall. he drilled a big hole in the headstock and hung it on a nail! i was absolutly flabbergasted!

i also have a yamaha amp, does that count?
