You can't be wrong with it (Yamaha - SA2200)

By Ogita, 01/05/2019
Yamaha SA2200 is definitely one of the best semi-hollow body guitars in the market. It does not matter where one starts, from the production perspective, i.e. technology, materials, labour, or from the guitar players' perspective, it is very, very hard for other brands to bid this one - made in Japan by Yamaha. The finish is flawless and electronics are uncomplainable. Wood and materials are of a high quality grade similar to those used by Gibson to make their ES models. I have not found any issue with the structure of the guitar. Yamaha uses ebony to make fretboards for the SA model and more expensive guitars. It gives more high ends, more crunchy sounds and more sustain. Gibson uses rosewood that gives more low ends and warmth. Tone is a personal preference. However, using the tone control knob with Push-Pull Coil Split, I can produce sounds that are more similar to a Fender Strat. Ebony is denser and harder hence more solid and durable than rosewood. The feel is so smooth and very comfortable when playing the guitar the first time. Surprisingly, Yamaha SA2200 has a much lower price than Gibson ES models. So if I had to choose between Yamaha SA2200 and a Gibson ES as free gift, I would take the Gibson then sell it to buy the Yamaha.

By chris nesly, 01/07/2019
Excellent feeling w sound (pickups neck) : "on se prend pour Bireli" !... Neck is sooo big !; but sound is more !... :)
For "intelligent" - not snob - players... (and the mahoganny looks so cool !)
Buyed 210 € (France, internet: Woodbrass) in 2010 : I never regret it.
:bravo: :bave: :facepalm:

Ps : if you want to buy me, put 290 € on rakuten (call before). "Dot Worn Cherry - out of catalog; all mahoganny, neck inclued !)

Hohner as good as 1960's ES 335 or Epiphone (Hohner - SE35)

By Adrian Borgust, 14/07/2019
I have'Gibson-ised' it as I love the '58 era dot inlay 335's, but could NEVER afford genuine one! What astonished me, apart from build quality is there is even the oval orange paper copy of model type and number, just as per Gibbo, visible through f hole. I fitted a 'roller' type bridge, action is just so good, no fret buzz, really well finished. I removed bridge PUP cover and intend to remove other. It was made by Hohner in the '90's I believe and was told by guy I bought this from that it has 'Kent Armstrong' humbuckers, no idea if true or were std on original? Whatever they are they sound great (I suspect they are originals). I fitted the Gibson type 'tulip' machine heads and truss rod cover (original was different shape with SE35 on it. I would NEVER try to pass on as a Gibson, and anyone who knew their 'onions' would know it is NOT a Gibbo in an instant, but it plays great through my Hi-Watt 100 watt combo, looks great, and you can get all the sounds you would expect from a 335. I have gigged with it many times. So if you ever see one up for sale, grab yourself a great late 50's era 335 type for a fraction of the price!! They seem quite rare as there is only 1 or 2 (favourable) reviews on Youtube, and I have only seen 1 for sale on e-bay, but don't look that often.
