    When your guitar comes in, post some pictures.

    I've had this one since I bought it new in 1980.

    Back in the 80s, a friend of mine was selling them in his store in Ct. I tried one out and it played and sounded great! I really wanted it but at the time I was a little light in the wallet.

    Saw a dude in Syracuse play a SA-200 through some sort of fender tweed type amp a few months back, the guy smoked and his sound was great!

    These guitars were kind of expensive back in the day. I think I paid around $600 in 1980 which was a lot back then.

    such a great guitar. these days I MUCH prefer yamaha's 335s to gibsons... haven't had the pleasure of playing any real old gibbys though. Yamaha's have such a good mystique about them.... not a whole BS aura like gibson, but a sort of personabiliity I guess...

    I picked that one up over at the Emporium awhile back. It plays as good as it looks.

    I think Yamaha semi-hollow guitars are way underrated. I recently picked up this "signature" semi-hollowbody with three P-90's for small money and it is an outstanding guitar.

    I tried literally loads of semi's new 335's older 335's and nothing quite stuck in my mind like the SA 2200. I didn't buy it in the end, regretted it and then had to wait ages for one to come back in to stock. They are really quite rare (certainly in the UK) and they rarely come up for sale on Ebay. I think these are produced in quite small numbers and may become fairly collectable in the future.
