and they were only made for 2 years! The thing that really gets me is that if you want to date it by the serial number, all the Yamaha electrics made in 1966 (SG-2, SG-3, SG-5, SG-7, SG-12) have a serial number in the range 0398-3951. Meaning they made 3500 of them in total - 500 - 800 of each, for that year? Same for 1967 (serials 3952-7433). So at the outermost stretch there might be 2000 SG-3s ever made.
