Yamaha SA2200 Semi Hollowbody Electric Guitar - Violin Sunburst
Yamaha introduced the SA2200 with the goal of competing against some of the finest semi-hollowbody guitars on the planet and it was a venture which really paid off. Crafted in Japan by Yamaha's finest crafstmen, the SA2200 easily matches perhaps more well known guitars such as the Gibson ES-355 in terms of a superb sounding, professional grade instrument.
The body is perfectly crafted from the highest quality maple, which not only looks sublime with a seriously gorgeous flame-like grain but presents a glistening, bright tone that simply oozes a dazzling spacious warmth of a super high-end semi-hollowbody. This merged with the super hot Alnico V Humbucker pick-ups in the neck and a bridge with 3-way switching, leads to one of the most sophisticated guitar tones on the modern market. The versatile, classic and nothing short of spectacular tone of the Yamaha SA2200 will leave on-lookers in awe.
Fitted with a spectacularly well playing ebony fretboard, the Yamaha SA2200 Semi-Hollowbody presents quick, ferious playability that'll make light work of a ripping solo, boogie woogie or even rhythm guitar.
In a violin sunburst finish, this guitar is every bit as classy as the appearance would suggest. It has the tone and feel of a guitar in a far higher price bracket but at a far more acceptable price. Overall we can't recommend this guitar enough to guitarists looking for a world class instrument as it's pure and utterly immense!
