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 that the other way round (If you get my drift)

I have a Yamaha SG800 which is the first guitar that ever really astonished me with its quality - I've a feeling the SL800 will be equally astonishing


Heh. Seems like it's some pretty high quality instruments the 800 series. Sounds like a bargain for ?450 in that case. I will take the trip and check it out. Thanks for your opinion!

It's a monster guitar and you'se all should be kicking yourselves for not getting to it first...


JapL,

How did you receive this info?

I'm so curious if my Yammy Lord Player 400's neck is maple or mahogany.

this is my Lord Player...I guess its an LP400, the most common of all Lord Players.

I believe the TRC isn't original. I got it without the bridge PU, and the neck PU cover has been removed. Its got extra holes too on the headstock. a small screw hole above every machinehead. Former owner must've installed a set plastic kluson tuners. Shame on its former owner. I installed SD Alnico Pro 2's.

I fell in love with it the moment I struck the strings. Its not too heavy like most Greco EGs and resonates deeply and its not too muddy or middy.

My only gripe is that the fingerboard is wide like the Super R'inRoller Strats.

I just need to know if the neck is mahogany or maple.

Anyone?

A Yammy SG800s that used to be mine. Sold it early this year to finance an RK strat. I'm hoping to get this back when my funds are available and if the new owner decides to part with it.

wow that's a high model. any pics?

my bandmate used to have a Studio Lord 550S with the open book headstock unlike the headstock on my SG800s.

what's the difference between a Lord Player and a Studio Player besides that Lord Player has that open book design.
