ELECTRIC GUITARS & BASSES 2010 Product Catalog...
Each has been a powerful inﬂ uence their evolution and development. The arrival of Yamaha’s SG guitars and BB basses in the late 70’s was a turning point in Rock history. Our guitar designers at the time completely rethought the functions and design of the guitar, taking an entirely different approach to the construction of the SG2000.
After playing the same guitar for years, the guitar adapts to the guitarist’s playing style. It takes time for a new guitar to adapt to your own way of playing. Stress found between parts like ﬁ nish, woods, body, neck, ﬁ ngerboard, nut, bridge, etc., must be released before all of the parts can resonate together as an instrument.
