Yamaha SA-20 (full hollow body guitar)

Yamaha SA20 - 01 - DSCN1298The SA20 is a twelve string full hollow body guitar. To compensate for the larger headstock and the twelve tuners, the guitar is nicely balanced by a suitably shaped piece of metal mounted on the inside of the tailpiece end of the body. Yamaha has done the same for the SA70 bass guitar. I’ll try to take a picture of it one day…
