Yamaha Surf Guitars Combine Classic Look With Todays Sound

Buena Park, CA — In response to the growing demand for affordable electric guitars, Yamaha Corporation of America, Consumer Products Division, presents the Surf Guitars. Targeted to beginning and younger players, five new models combine an up-to-date sound with vintage styling that echoes the time when rock-n-roll took control of America’s beach culture.
The physical design is based upon the original Yamaha SG line, which debuted in 1966. Yamaha was the first guitar manufacturer to introduce the angled “Samurai” headstock shape that has since been imitated by generations of electric guitars.
All models feature flat tops, solid Alder or Basswood bodies, fast 22-fret Maple necks and Rosewood fingerboards, plus angled headstocks. Proprietary Yamaha electronics include five-position pickup switches, volume and tone control knobs, an incredibly smooth, non-locking tremolo system, and single-coil/humbucking pickup configurations.
To complete the classic look, players can choose from a variety of finishes that yield an awesome look, including Ocean Blue, Candy Apple Red, Racing Car Green and Chrome Yellow. Other design elements include Gold and die-cast tuning machines.
