Re: Info on Yamaha SJ1000
: Has anybody got info on a Yamaha SJ1000 (super flighter. cos i got one and know nothing about it?? Please help. cheers
Hi - it is actually SF1000, on the head of the guitar, the F is written backwards and looks like a J.
There were 3 main models of Super Flighter, the SF500, 700 and 1000. I belive there may have been a Super Fligher Junior, with P90 pickups, but I've never seen one in the flesh.
The SF range was made late 1970's early 80s. They were excellent guitars. The SF1000 was the top of the range, usually in solid maple (which gives a clearer tone than is typical for a guitar with such powerful humbucker pickups), with gold fittings and a coil tap which selects single coils (the outer pair of coils) on the pickup. The guitars are quite collectible now, and if in good condition with original parts is worth around Â£650.
