    I thought I might give up my quest for a Starfire IV and look for a new Yamaha SA2200 instead. The big online retailers don't seem to have them. Anyone know of a reliable source for them?

    Thanks. Not interested in overseas shipping (I'm in the US).

    Bananas At Large has them. Anyone shop there?

    Are you going to post this in every old thread that ever mentioned an SA2200?

    The GE-24 yamaha case is disappointing. The guitar is anything but.

    These guys were good when I sent the case back.

    Looks like there was a $500 price hike in the past year - they were $1499.00 for a long time.

    Almost impossible to find.

    There's a dark burst type and a lighter violin burst type, of which I prefer the latter.

    Good luck. ML.

    Hi Everyone, sorry late to post here.
    Bananas does carry the SA2200. We have two in stock currently and keep them in stock as best as we can. Sometimes we do run out when Yamaha can't provide fast enough.
    Thanks for checking on us earlier, sorry I missed the post!

    I have an 80's Yamaha SA2000S. It is a carved spruce top version. This has been my main axe for almost all of my playing career. Great guitar and built very very well.

    SA2200 looks very sexy, indeed. But I don't really like maple tops for a 335 type guitar.

    not trying to be argumentative, but isn't that the definition of a 335-type guitar?

    On another note, I absolutely LOVE my SA2200. It's gone up against several Ibanez and Gibson semi-hollows over the years and remains king of the hill. It's the closest thing I've found to the perfect electric guitar.

    Not really. Perhaps for a Gibson 335 but for carved top semi-acoustics, no.

    Get a 70s one. I have two, an SA2000s and an SA2100. They both rock very hard indeed. My number 1 and 2 guitars respectively (of 4, the latter two being Gibsons. I prefer the Yammies. Better tone, more tonal options including coil tap, and more responsive to play).
