So, I was looking around at my local pawn shop when I spotted this thing hanging there with a price tag of $250. There I was, I had found another Yamaha SG that I had sworn to myself I would by if saw one somewhere years ago. I began to love these guitars in 2008 when I was in the market for a Gibson Les Paul. After playing the sbg500, I was hooked, it was better than any Les Paul I had played at the time. A couple of years later I found a sg800, and now I found the entry level sbg. I ended up taking it home for a whopping $140!! It was dirty, but after a little bit of love it cleaned up nice, and sounds fantastic. I'm still fan boying over it.
