The classic Yamaha doublecut shape updated with modern electronics, specs, and a classic Gold Top finish. This is the SBG1802, which is built with a maple top over a mahogany body. The modern changes to the guitar are a redesigned top that curves deeper than previous models, and now the center has optimized wood-mass to maximize the vibration of the strings through the bridge and tailpiece. The back is now flat to increase the low-mid response and presence of the instrument. The SBG headstock has been reshaped to a slightly smaller size – and the classic ‘flower pot’ inlay has been resized to be appropriately proportioned. Tone is provided by two Seymour Duncan P-90s for great chunky and well-defined tones, and hardware are Grover locking tuners and TonePros bridge/tailpiece for a rock-solid construction.
