What semihollow gives greatest bang for buck?

I am a fan of a bargain and finding a couple awesome 80s Yamaha guitars for under $300 that compared favorably to much more expensive guitars has turned me onto fact that some guitars are simply...

Job loss forces me to sell my three most valuable guitars. All reasonable offers will be considered, would also consider trades for cheaper guitars or gear plus cash. I'm in Los Angeles area,...

Save the Planet Guitar Topic 1 - enough guitars exist, stop building new ones!

I saw an article on guitar makers making their guitars from sustainable woods, or even from recycled plastics (in part -- Simon Lee yogurt special). And it got me thinking:

The best form of...

You can get a great guitar for less, like $200-300 US, if you know what to look for.

My number one guitar is a 1989 Yamaha superstrat (SE612A) that I got for under $300. I think these retailed...

I personally would try to stay away from a 2 semitone bend that close to the nut (3rd fret). I guess it can be done, but it's going to be harder than, say, the same bend at the 8th fret. So you...

Thinning the herd? (do you feel the need to sell some of your guitars?)

That's fine for $80. I love Yamahas. I bought a 25 year old Pacifica 712 for about $200 a few weeks ago, and it is a beast. Now, the 712 is a higher level than the 112, but you might not notice...

I'm a total Yamaholic, great bang for the buck. You can find awesome Yamaha's for under $300, I'd look at late 80s or early 90s.

These older Yamahas are, IMO, the true "Pawn Shop" stars right now, if you can find them and look for the "higher" model numbers -- like 400 series or higher (e.g., SHB400, SBG500, Pacifica 512,...

NGD: 1989 Yamaha Pacifica 712

Priorities when you shop for guitar?

I recently bought a new (to me) guitar at a guitar shop.

My only criteria was a whammy bar, price was not an issue. The guitar store was small, so they only had about 12 guitars that had that. I...
