VINTAGE 1970 YAMAHA G130A CLASSICAL GUITAR NIPPON-GAKKI
- Source: eBay
A vintage Yamaha G-130A Classical Acoustic Guitar. Made in Japan circa 1970. This is a beautiful looking guitar made with excellent woods. The quality, materials, and construction are very good. You don't see workmanship like this anymore, at least not on affordable guitars. An amazing value for this broken-in vintage guitar. I would put this guitar up against many, including guitars far more pricey.
This model Yamaha has been used by professionals for years because of its wonderful rich tone and the action makes it easy and fun to play. It has resonant rich bass and clear ringing highs unlike many guitars that I've heard or played recently. This guitar has a solid spruce top with a very unusual and rare African Zebrawood back and sides that give it its wonderful sound quality, a koa neck with a 19-fret ebony fretboard, triple ply binding, a fancy design around the soundhole, and bracing along the interior. The tuners and bridge are original to the guitar. The neck is nice and straight and plays well all the way up the neck without any buzzing. T is minor fret-wear that I feel adds to the playability of the guitar.A real pro's guitar.
The guitar measures approximately 40 inches total length. It's in great condition Inside the soundhole is the original Yamaha label completely intact. amazing value for a guitar of this quality
