Yamaha (japan) / SA-60 / 1974 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Early 70’s Yamahas have become very collectible guitars - their build quality, tone and feel are fantastic. Made in the famous Nippon Gakki factory, the SA-60 is clearly based on a Gibson ES335, but with a twist. The contoured shape of the horns make the guitar really stand out, the fingerboard inlays are classy, the tone and volume knobs are beautifully retro, the bridge saddles are quirky, and the embossed leather inset in the tailpiece is just cool. The tone is where this really shines... it's thick, warm, responsive, resonant, expressive... just fantastic. Playability is very good with a comfortable feeling neck and easy action. The guitar is in excellent condition, very clean but with some great looking lacquer checking. It comes in a brand new fitted hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
