More good news:
But first the bad news. The new archive misses a lot of information on very popular Yamaha's like the SG2000 etc. But who cares
. We know that already
Now the good news:
The new archive has lots of information on some models that we had little information on till now. Think of YSG's LP's SR's etc.
Scrolling the new archive gives some very interesting information:
It was hard to get information on early LP and Strat type guitars from Yamaha. They show up only in Japanese catalogs. The archive presents SL's and SR's from the end of 1976. So while yamaha was introducing their famous SG2000's etc they were also starting building these fantastic LP's and Strat imitations.
Further knowing these early production years, it becomes more and more clear that yamaha used their standard SG numbering system for their SL's, LP's en SR's. These guitars were very hard to date untill now.
And..... can anybody tell me why I spend weeks scrolling my catalogs and internet making a Yamaha timeline while the people at Yamaha now have a similar thing on their website
But.... don't be afraid.... I have guitars in my timeline that don't show in the new Yamaha archive.
