This guitar is the pinnacle of Yamaha's SG range and possibly of their whole 1980s production line of guitars. Released in 1982, it is similar in some ways to the 2000 but with some major differences. Gone was the brass sustain plate and there was now the new small mass bridge. This bridge was around 57gms instead of 74gms on the 2000, it was narrower (front to back) leaving less room for intonation adjustments. The wings were solid mahogany the T cross construction remained.
There was a 3000 and a 3000S. The S was also called the custom, in Japan it was called the professional. The designation was shown on the Truss Rod Cover and on the professional it was also stamped on the pickguard.
