I can't help feeling though that there must be a 'stylesheet' for Yamaha pickups much as there is for Greco where you can work out...

Yamaha SL1000

Hi I've lived with my astonishing Yamaha SL1000 (LP custom copy from 1977 fyi) for a couple of years now and have yet to find any other reference to it (or any other like it) on the web.

No specific opinion other that I've never been anything less than astonished at the quality of Yamahas high end guitars (and the SL800 will be a high end guitar). I get the feeling that Yamaha went in for producing really professional quality instruments that happened to look like Les Pauls rather t...

Studio Lord SL1000

Strangely... I have acquired a Yamaha SL1000 - which is a Studio Lord LP custom copy of such exquisite beauty and tone that no record of it dare exist anywhere - Google? Nada! Only the original ebay ad I got it from. I can vouch for it being a genuine Yamy because I own an SG800 of similar vintage t...
