The YEG100a

This guitar is a rare and very expensive item if you are lucky enough to find one anywhere. Only 20 of these were made. It was a 100 years celebration model in March 1988. It was released at 800,000 yen which was about £6,000 in 1988, I have only ever seen one for sale which was for 900,000 yen. Scroll decorations and LED lights add to the look of this very special guitar.
