    Yes, very cool. Kind of reminds me of this recent acquisition. My new to me SE 300.

    I bought this new in '71 and have had it since.
    I am thinking I should get it set up or maybe sell it as I have just bought a new Taylor. Still has a rich sound but the action is a little higher than I like.

    That's a beauty.

    I never knew about truss rod adjustments until recently. My 1978 was always way too high. An easy adjustment fixed it right up.

    I should have a pro do it.....the truss rod has never been touched in 45 years.

    Good idea. Have it looked at before you sell. You will regret letting it go after having taken such good care for nearly half a century.

    Owners of Yamaha electrics will be familiar with the cloudy finish that sometimes appeared under the lacquer and did not respond to polishing.

    I was playing my 1982 SA 2000S the other day and gave it a good wipe down before putting it back in its case. All the cloudy patches that have been there for years have disappeared. This is weird. The guitar is 35 years old why has it cleared up now?

    I have just rechecked my guitar under sunlight and have discovered the problem remains. Oh well these old eyes can play tricks.:oops:

    Hi all,
    I just bought an RGX 521.
    I tried to date:
    Guitar Info
    Your guitar was made in
    Taiwan
    on July 12th, 1991 or 2001
    Production Number: 80

    I would like to know the year. Not sure if 90s or 00s

    My 1985 SG2000. Great condition, versatile with the coil-tapped humbuckers and the heaviest guitar I've ever owned. Sustains forever though. P8220005.JPG

    That's very similar to my 1979 SG2000 that I posted about here back in post# 161 (http://www.tdpri.com/threads/yamaha-guitar-owners-club.166075/page-9#post-3967779). That tobacco-burst must be the most common color for those things. I replaced the pickups about 35 years ago with Duncans, but I know I still have the originals around somewhere. Mine never had coil taps. Mine's not very fun to play any more because the frets are worn so flat. I may treat it to a refret this coming year.

    Just got a 1986 vintage SE110 .. quite a rock machine, the unlabelled humbucker is gutsy without being muddy and pretty feedback resistant .. could do with the old Esquire trick of hiding a tele neck pickup under the PG to get some neck tones (It`s got plenty of routing underneath) and using a pull pot on the single volume to engage it ..

    I found my 1st decent acoustic-FG 75 (parlor size) I had when I was in high school (long gone) at a thrift shop, had to get it, $35, cleaners up great and is awesome. Going to look at an SC 300 T tomorrow. Likely coming home with me. Used to have one of these back in the day, weird offset body with Strat setup. Pics to follow....
