SG1820 BS

| /


The Yamaha SG1820 BS SG Series Electric Guitar offers a touch of classic '70s vibe in a perfectly constructed modern guitar with Mahogany and carved Maple tonewood.

A long time weapon of choice for legendary player Carlos Santana, the Yamaha SG really put Japanese made guitars on the map, proving that there were other places other than the USA crafting incredible guitars.

The SG1820 fuses classic styling with flawless Japanese construction for a real dream machine. Utilising the time tested Mahogany and carved Maple tonewood pairing, this guitar delivers on tone in a big way. Perfectly balanced, this guitar is comfortable despite its relatively high weight; think vintage Les Paul and then a bit more!

The Mahogany neck features a slick Rosewood fingerboard and a 24.75" scale length, it feels really familiar and super secure. With Grover locking tuners, Tonepro bridge and a Graph tech nut, this guitar is complemented by a range of premium appointments, most notably the Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers. With a powerful and super punchy tone, they are a great option.
