Posted the Owner’s Manual for the SA60, SA75 and SA90
If you have lost or never had a Yamaha Superaxe pickguard, here is some information on how you can make one for an SA20, SA30 and SA50 model.
In the early seventies Yamaha introduced the SA50 Pearl Series. These guitars were identical to the standard SA50 but were given bright new colours.

Here you’ll see lots of photos on how I restored a vintage SA-xx case to its former glory. Details here.
Here a simple way of replacing a broken case handle with a Stewmac part. Details here.
Here is an interesting puzzle – who created these two SA30’s with painted F holes? Some skilled individual or was it Yamaha? Are there any more?

This post shows how I built a guitar from New Zealand native timbers – a Totara body, a Rewarewa neck and a Kohekohe fretboard. The Totara body was cut out of an old fencepost, put in the ground some odd 60 years ago, and removed by us when needed to make space for a driveway. A nice token that it came from the family land.
