Kapa guitar collection a while back) is interested in the Yamaha SG3C guitar as pictured above and asks:
"Does anyone out there have one of these they would be willing to make a full size tracing of the body for me?"Which seems a fair enough request. Please respond via the comments below and I'll see to it that Greg gets your message.
The Yamaha SG3C is indeed a cool guitar, and was introduced a year after my own beloved Yamaha SG3 (similar model number, very different design), about which I have written plenty already. Both guitars have the same three singlecoil pickups arranged with one coil at the neck and two in the bridge position. However, the SG3C adopts a much simpler switching system than its slightly older sibling's Jazzmaster-like setup and functions only as a two pickup guitar with the two coils at the bridge being wired together in series. For those who are interested this video gives quite a nice little tour around the insides of the guitar.
This guitar is currently listed on eBay Australia, with five days left to run on the auction and bidding currently at just under AU$300 (Australian dollars) at the time of writing.
