1977 Yamaha Japan SF-700 Super Flighter Red & used hard case.
The Yamaha "Super Flighter" range were produced by Yamaha Japan from 1977-1982. The standard of the range was an SF-500 which had a bolt on neck. Still a great guitar & very sought after, particularly in Ivory white, next was the SF-700 which has a set neck & lastly is the SF-1000 which has a set neck, gold hardwear & a coil split option on both pickups. The offset body, set neck & 24 fret neck make these a great rock guitar. Access to the upper frets is excellent. The SF-700 was a mid range model and was made from 1977-1980. The body is made of a combination of an Alder back and a Maple top. The neck is Maple with a Rosewood fingerboard & "split pearl" markers. The pickups are excellent and are stamped 52.9.30 which dates them & the guitar to 1977 making the guitar a rather cool 44 years old!
These guitars really do play well & I love the Yamaha pickups.
Overall, I would describe the condition as very good. The neck is straight and the frets have some wear but still plenty of life & no indents.
This guitar came in with an old gig bag. It's tricky to find a fitted case for this guitar but I did have a generic one that gives a decent fit and will be supplied with the guitar.
