I just picked up an early 80's SA2000 and it is a killer guitar :rockon:sneakypete said:well I`m no pro, not even close but I own and love my USA II and Pacifica 10th anniversary...similar to the USA II but with Duncan single coils instead of the Vintage Rails. Warmoth necks and bodies, Duncan p`ups, Schaller locking tuners, Wilkinson bridges...come to think of it, `bout the only thing Yamaha about em is the MOP inlayed logo on the headstock. Also have the MS 1511 Mike Stern and an SA2200 plus an SAS 1500 as well as several acoustics...love them Dynamics... and a couple of older SG types. BIG fan of the Yamahas...for these amateur hands and ears they sure are great guitars.
Too late, I spent more than I would have a year ago (still under $1000 but not by much) so word is leaking out. This far surpasses most 335's I've played so it's still a bargain in my opinion. :food-smiley-004:sneakypete said:very good...they are beautiful. But...don`t spill the beans `cause prices will start going up if too many guys catch on to Yamaha. sssshhhhh.
