Nice looking SA50 for sale on ebay too expensive though I think might be tempted if it was more reasonable

I looked at your link, the guitar looks a bit worn, the tremolo arm is missing and there's a hole leftover form a stereo jack mod.

I don't know if the price is reasonable, but imo, it's too expensive.

Here's one on reverb: https://reverb.com/item/4011534-yamaha- ... cherry-red

More expensive than the first one, but looks to be in better condition.

The one on Ebay got no bids I doubt he'll sell at the price he wants.

Naaah, Well spotted, and keep 'em comming. :D

Your opinion can help a member find "the good one" and reject those that are not really worth the money. Thanks.
