I have liked my Epiphone ES339 semi-hollow well enough. Very well, especially considering the price. But I have been distracted by wondering what a better semi-hollow would be like. So I have been trying out every one I can get my hands on. (Which is hard, because most of them are not in stock anywhere.) I tried Gibsons, Ibanez, PRS, Gretsch, maybe a couple others. None of them made we want to trade in my Epiphone (even though, yes, some of them were obviously better). Then I stumbled on the Yamaha SA2200 at my local GC. I did not even know this guitar existed. And in fact I could not find any one of these in stock at any other store within 100 miles of here. Anyway, this guitar blew me away. Everything about it was great. The feel, the sound, the quality, the pickups, you name it. It was like a perfect guitar. It even has coil splitting with push-pull pots, which is a feature the Gibsons and most of the others do not have. I was not necessarily looking for something ES335 styled. But it was so good I would have bought it on the spot, except it had a problem with the switch -the neck pickup would cut in and out every so often. They said they would fix it, but I did not trust GC to do that, especially given the difficulty of working on SHs. So I went on Reverb and found one used, and ordered it last night. Fingers crossed. I am not a fan of ordering guitars sight-unseen. But there was no other way. Sweetwater does not carry this guitar (which I would trust for online more then GC or MF). And the used one I bought comes with a case, which the new guitar does not. Does anyone have the Yamaha SA2200? Opinions and impressions? This is twice as much money than I ever imagined I would spend on a guitar. So if I'm disappointed I will have a much harder time flipping it. But this guitar really impressed me.
