..I love it when you come out with the Yams...lovely!
(I also would have guessed from the jpeg at a 3-piece mahogany body.)
So surprised this didn't shift like a greased weasel Noel... a set neck guitar with mojo, beautifully crafted, with a hard case..for just over 3 ton.
Does a seam of Yammys run under your house?! :)

What do these things sound like and how would they compare to the SG2000 model?
Status series II; Fender Standard Jazz (MIM); Fender "Geddy Lee" Jazz (CIJ); 'Fecker' fretless J; J&D Vintage 1975 J bass.
Yes - I like Jazz basses!

As the 200 doesn't have the high-end pickups found fitted to the 1000/2000, it has more in common with other traditional humbucker equipped guitars. It's a little fatter sounding than other 70s and 80s Japanese designs, such as the Washburn T-Bird (against the Falcon/Eagle), but not capable of the sweet mellow mids and cutting highs of the 1000/2000. Build quality wise, it's a chunky, solid bit of wood, nowhere as near weighty as a 1000/2000. Generally, it would be like comparing a Mexican Strat to a US Custom Shop Strat, say. Same basic design, but lacking the quality hardware and components.

Hi there this guitar looks like a beauty, i wanted to ask what the sounds are like on it? like does it have a rich warm tone or twangy, or both even?
and would you be interested in a trade for an Epiphone dot in sunburst?

I have a similar age/lower end yamaha SG - and the thing is amazing. My one is rich and warm, and with the coil tap I added it has a single coil type twang too. With a nice body to it if you know what I mean?

Unlike your 400, the 200 utilises lesser woods and omits the carved top and the finer embellishments, such as binding. That said, the 200 is a solid performer, easily bettering the made in China Epiphones and Tokais of today.

Best policy etc etc. There was a black one (with replacement Grover tuners) for sale recently, at a store South of the Border. Asking price was £350.

Without sounding rude, this Yamaha p*sses all over all the Epiphones and Tokai's of today. No, it is not an SG2000 and if it was it would have gone long long ago. It is however a really nice gutsy guitar that sounds a bit too cheap to me... Unless of course for the same price you fancy a new bottom of the range banjo?
