model name / number: G-250
1976 Yamaha G-250 Nippon Gakki
The guitar was restored and the bracing enhanced (shaved) by Neil Ta in November 2022.
The rosewood back and sides help give the sound a deeper and more resonant tone.
This early version has higher grade tonewood as materials and labor were more affordable. The later iterations of this guitar were made from cheaper tonewood such as mahogany and with no embellishment such as pufflings.
Like other manufacturers in the 60s-70s, Yamaha often used cedar and spruce interchangeably. This guitar has a high-grade cedar top.
The headstock also features the double line ornament, typically found on the Grand Concert series.
The guitar is in fantastic condition considering it's 48 years old. It has some minor signs of wear but none that will affect its beautiful tone.
