Yamaha SBG 3000 Guitar

Rare Electric Guitar

Yamaha SBG3000 is a limited edition run by Yamaha Guitars to celebrate 40 years of selling guitars in the United States. The original Yamaha “SG” series was issued in the mid-1970s, and the SG line became famous for its incredible sustain after legendary artists like Carlos Santana and Bob Marley popularized the models.


In 2007, Yamaha reissued the guitars under the model names SBG2000 and SBG1000 that were faithful reproductions of the originals. The SBG3000 is highly ornate version of the SBG series and limited to just 40 guitars.


The SBG3000 are built at Yamaha’s famed Yamaha Music Craft in Hamamatsu, Japan with their best lutheirs. The Yamaha SBG3000 features a premium carved Maple top over a Maple/Mahogany body and high-grade Ebony fretboard over select Maple/Mahogany neck, Yamaha Alnico V Covered Humbucker pickups and Mother-of-Pearl/Abalone inlays, position markers and binding.

This model has never been available in the United States, and only 40 of these limited edition collector’s items will be produced by Yamaha. Each of the 40 guitars are serialized and come with a special glass display case. A new and unique feature to this SBG series is Yamaha’s Initial Response Acceleration. This is a proprietary manufacturing process that accelerates the maturing process of the instrument. This allows a brand new production instrument to develop its own individual character quicker, which results in a highly responsive guitar that has the sound of a guitar that has been played for many years. In addition the Initial Response Acceleration brings out tonal sweet spots, increases stability and strength of the wood, and guards against cracking, splitting and decay.
