Wonderful guitar, just need to replace two of the switches but I've managed to acquire some exact replacements.

......... and it's the SC-1200 (Y) fine looking guitar.

Is the switching identical to your SC-800 :?:

Yes, switching, pickups, bridge all identical to the SC800 the main difference between the two is the set neck on the SC1200 and the woods used in its construction.

Yes, it's a cool construction having the neck going all the way through from the head to the end of the body. (doesn't it ? )
It looks to be in a close to new shape.

Yeah very interesting construction, Mapel, Mahogany, laminated neck all the way through, Alder wings on the body. The guitar has a few dents and scrapes, I'd describe it as played but looked after. Lovely dark Ebony fretboard. I've always been a big Yamaha SG fan but SC's may be one of those very unrated gems.

Super guitar Jimi. You are right SCs are largely under the radar but also a wide range too.

Cheers guys
Got the switches sorted out so everything is working perfectly now.
First read about the SC1200 in 1985 in a book reviewing guitars of the 80's. Thought to myself must get one of them someday. Only took me 31 years to do it (-:

Thanks Bill

There's a very clean SC800 for sale on EBay UK for a reasonable price at the moment.
