Yamaha SX

Unread postby balston11 » Mon Feb 27, 2017 9:26 pm

Been doing some work on my Fender pages recently so thought it was about time to get back to my first love the Yamahas. I have made a strat on the SX range, not yet on the public menu but can be viewed here http://www.alston-family.co.uk/SX/sx.php
I would appreciate comments any useful additions, corrections all the usual. Thanks.

Nice Bill. (Y)

I've got the SX-60 in the somewhat dull brown/crimson(ish) colour.

Note that the SX-60 have the large scratchplate going all the way down to the bottom end holding pots and pu switch.

From the SX-80 and up the scratchplate is the smaller "triangle" type.

Closely related to the SX-900B is the NSX-2000 Exart: more info here : :idea: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=7004&p=38068#p38068 :idea:

Those are pretty cool guitars, I know a Music Go Round that has a 2 single coil one I been eying but I am not sure its two single coils would satisfy me.

If you can try it out, it's definitely worth a try.

I think my SX-60 has a telecaster(ish) sound, very bright.

Bill, the SX-60 is also available in black, quite a few pics online, and most of them look legit.

Some pictures online claim that the black SX guitars with the large scratchplate are SX-80 , but I thing the're wrong, but worth looking into. :?

The difference between the 60 and the 80 appears to be the binding on the body but I am not absolutely certain

Elite Vintage Guitars page in the UK shows a 60 and an 80 for sale. Based on the description Bill is correct in that the binding appears to be the only difference. There is no info on wood but I guess that could be a difference. The 60 is white and the 80 is natural so no way to compare.
Edit
I just checked Music Go Round and the SX they have listed as an SX 60 has binding so is more likely 80. And it bears a striking resemblance to one that was on Reverb a few months ago. Pretty sure they are one and the same.
