YAMAHA SG 175 - 1976

Rare collectible guitar. The model made famous by CarlosSanatana.

This is a one owner Guitar. I know this because it is mine! It was my number 1 gigging guitar for a few years through the late 70s and in to the early eighties when I retired from playing out. The guitar is all original with no changes or repairs and has spent most of its life sat inside the original Yamaha case. There are a few marks and the odd ding but nothing troublesome, Frets are great, neck is straight and the action is fast and low. Serial number dates to 1976.

Some info from Vintageguitar.com:

The ’74 SG-175 was as handsome a guitar as you’d ever want to see. Its carved mahogany top was trimmed in abalone inlay. The first 175s had the older square-humped headstock. Hardware was gold. The ebony fingerboard was inlaid with abalone split wing or pyramid inlays. Finishes were natural, black and red, at least. It was, in fact, an SG-175 that first caught the eye of Carlos Santana, who began playing one around this time. He had custom pickups without the covers, and a fancy pearl inlay design covering the belly of the guitar.

In ’75, the headstock changed to having the double-dip or “W” cutout we associate with the SGs. There were at least one custom-made SG-175 with a brown sunburst finish and large pearl block inlays.
