NAMM 2010: Yamaha SG 1800 Series Electric Guitars Launched
With the classic SG2000 developed in association with Carlos Santana, the SG has long been a player's favourite thanks to a combination of incredible sound, outstanding playability and individual styling.
As part of Yamaha's 'Generation Rock' direction for electric guitars and basses, 2010 sees the launch of 3 new SG models - developed in direct response to player requests and what guitarists want Yamaha SGs to be in 2010.
Using direct feedback from Yamaha's London, LA and Tokyo Artist Relations offices, the guitars are specced with the custom-shop parts that artists want and need and finished with new simpler cosmetics that players have been asking for.
All featuring Japanese handmade set-neck construction, African Mahogany body and neck and maple top, the new SGs feature totally updated no-compromise specifications to finally make the stadium-ready guitars that Yamaha have been producing for artists available to the public.
