Archtop guitars are boundless in time and tradition. Yamaha crafts some of the finest archtops in the world – their artists have known this secret for years.The SA2200 represent traditional Yamaha craftsmanship at its finest, pushing the semi-hollow body guitar concept to the peak of refinement.
A solid block of wood runs through the otherwise hollow body for enhanced sustain and feedback resistance, giving the instrument a remarkable ability to reproduce everything from mellow jazz tones to the aggressive snap and growl of a solid body.
Performance muscle comes from two powerful Alnico V humbuckers, whose coils can be split via the tone knobs to provide additional, single coil-like sounds and combined permutations via the three-way pickup selector. Add in beautiful cosmetics like the figured maple body veneers and split-block inlaid ebony fingerboard, and this is an instrument you’ll find hard to resist.
The guitar is in great condition and comes with a Hiscox hard case,
