Yamaha electric guitar"SX"(probably late 70`s)

Hi folks,
I´m looking for a Yamaha SX electric guitar which must have been built in the mid- or late 70`s. I only saw it once on TV when I was watching a report about a tour of Rory Gallagher and the Sex Pistols in the UK. Must have been in 1978. I remember that Rory played this guitar on rehearsals.

FG-435, possibly for sale

I've got a Yamaha FG-435 I want to sell. It's about 7 years old and in decent shape. Got a nick on the back of it and a couple scratches. The neck and front are in great shape though. What's this thing worth? And how come I don't see a lot of these for sale?

Re: FG-435, possibly for sale

FG-435 huh? That's a great guitar. My brother recently got one from someone for $60 and it's one of the best sounding guitars I've heard! I think a big reason why there aren't many for sale is because everybody who gets thier hands on one loves it so they don't sell it at all! As for value, Im not really sure how much it's worth. But im do know I would pay $60 for one in a flash! I've been looking for a new guitar for quite a while now, and the FG-435 has been on the top of my list! So if you could send me some pics and tell me how much you're asking that'd be great!

Help - Out of Tune

My sister and I both have Yamaha Pacifica 112's. After using the whammy bar my guitar goes out of tune while my sisters stays in tune. Anyone know how to keep my guitar in tune.
Thanks - Steven

Re: Help - Out of Tune

I would check into replacing the tuning macines with Sperzel or similar tuning machines. Consult with a few guitar shop techs before doing this, but the general advise would be to upgrade the tuners.

How old is my SG 400

[The body of this post has been reconstituted from replies so it may differ from what was originally written.]

I bought an SG 400 in the very early eighties. It did have a serial number on the back which has long since disappeared. Is there any other way of determining the exact age and possibly more details on the guitar?

Opinion about Yamaha FJ 645A & FJ651

I have played a Yamaha FJ645 A (this is a Jumbo) and have been very impressed with the bass, the volume or amplification it is capable of while still maintaining a bright sound on all strings. Is this a peculiartiy or are many of the Yamaha Jumbos like this? There is an FJ 651 I am looking at and wonder if it might have any or preferably all of these qualities. I ask this because I cannot play it, it is from another state. Does anyone have any advise or knowledge about this or any other Yamahas that might have all three of these characteristics? My budget is from $150-$250 give or take. Thanks, Karl

Re: FG200 materials

The FG200 was made between 1972 and 1976. It has a spruce top, rosewood fingerboard, mahogany back and sides. Go to:

Click on Guitar Archives to get model info, click on Guitar Serial Number Wizard to get mfg date. Mine has two serial numbers, one inside on the back, the other inside, on the neck end. Try both. I've had mine for 33 years, and it seems to sound better as it ages. My only complaint is the high action.

Yamaha CJ-838S

Anybody know how much these jumbos go for? They seem to be very very rare. I've got one to sell, just want to ask a fair price...

Re: Yamaha CJ-838S

: Anybody know how much these jumbos go for? They seem to be very very rare. I've got one to sell, just want to ask a fair price...

I don't know for sure but would be interested in what you end up getting..

I bought one about 10 years ago (when the economy was sluggish in my area) for $150.

By sight a local guitar repairman thought it to be worth at least $1500.I must say I've played Martins and Guilds that didn't sound as good.

I did have someone bluebook it about 7 years ago and it was in the low hundreds. $200-$300

Let me know how you make out

Hey there, mine was bought new around 1979, and I don't remember the price. However, it is a "CJ-838S II" Not sure what the difference is, but it does have a narrow, fancy inlay up the perfectly bookmatched back. It is easily the best playing and sounding flat-top I've ever played or heard, and it sounds better every year! ed
