Yamaha SBG3000

Rare Electric Guitar

This Yamaha Custom SBG 3000, made in Japan. It features a double-cutaway body, set neck, two hum bucking pickups, two volume controls, two push/pull coil tap tone controls, three-way selector switch and twenty-two frets. The constructions on these guitars are handmade with detail that sparkles above so many other models out there. Carlos Santana helped design the SG3000 and his influence shows with a guitar that plays beautifully, sounds amazing and can sustain for days.
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 SBG3000 model was released after Gibson had sued Yamaha to cease from using "SG" in the name. The SBG3000 model is the flagship model for Yamaha and it really shows with its hand laid Mexican Abalone purling, large Chevron Mother of Pearl and Mexican Abalone dots for markers, gold hardware and gorgeous finish.   

The guitar is a true neck-through design made from Maple and Mahogany that weighs a modest 9lbs 8.1oz. We have owned one that was in the 12lb range so this is light. The neck is a slimmer C shape with 14" radius, jumbo wide frets that plays much like the Black Beauty it is. This guitar has a three-way switch with two volume controls, two tone controls with very cool pop up coil-splits that control some of the most amazing Spinex pickups I have played, you won't find Spinex pickups on many Yamaha models, the poles are made from Japanese acupuncture needle steel and the sound is most comparable to original PAF's and are getting to be highly sought after.
