Eastwood SA-15

Link Wray! Back in the late 1960's Yamaha continued to produce so very cool guitars with their SG and SA series. The Thinline SA-15 was a little more conservative take on Yamaha’s iconic ‘60s solidbody, the SG-7, itself inspired by the Mosrite.  The SA-15 seen here featured an unbound rosewood fingerboard and dot inlays, two volumes and two tones on a threeway switch. The extended lower horn of these guitars reflects a particularly Japanese obsession with everything Ventures.  The Ventures toured Japan early in their careers and Japanese fans loved them.  When Flower Power eclipsed the Ventures’ Surf sound, they were able to keep their careers alive on the strength of their fans in Japan.
