Yamaha AE1200S Archtop Guitar (L5 Super 400) w/ HSC
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-21)
Price : US $1,111.
This is a wonderful RARE Yamaha AE1200S in excellent shape. These were produced in the 80's and the S model was the most desirable since it has a solid top rather than laminate like the AE1200. I have heard this model referred to as the ''law suit'' model since for its similarity to a Gibson Super 400 or L5 CES and the model gained some fame ala U2. I own a L5 CES and believe in some ways the quality of the AE1200S is better. The tone is incredible (with roundwound strings for blues, pop fusion or flatwound strings for jazz - bebop). These are rare and it is rarer to find one in such good dondition. The neck true and has plenty of fret left. The pickups show some wear and there are the general surface scratches you would expect with a guitar of its age that has been played but well cared for. The pictures were taken the day of listing. Good luck biding!

There is a small finish dent on the heel of the neck. If you zoom in on the photo and look directly below the four light reflections you will see it (its very small). Additionally the finish in this area is cloudy sometimes depending on the lighting and humidity. I have added to pictures to better show this area.
