This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-06-27)
Price : US $93.99
This auction is for an older Yamaha 12-string acoustic guitar,model no.FG-420-12.This guitar was purchased by me back in 1986 which due to it's age, sort of puts it into a vintage classification.For it's age,the condition is quite good and the wood has aged quite well which has given it a nice mellow tone to it and has retained much of it's gloss.However,like most things aged and played,there is some blemishes located throughout,with most due to playing wear.There is a very light amount of tarnish and very spotty corrosion on the rear tuner covers (see photo) along with some 'lifting' of the neck right where it meets the body (see photo).Despite this,the action is still quite good.Please note however that there are no cracks or splitting noted anywheres on the guitar.The next issue is fret wear of which the first,second and third frets have some present which consists of some 'divets' in those frets.As for the material of the wood,the top is spruce and the back (I believe) is mahogany which is quite dark in color and looks almost like rosewood! For a guitar this old,it has nice tone and action.The last item that Inoticed is that it is missing a strap peg on the bottom of the body.The guitar is being sold 'as is' and will be insured when shipped.The S&H cost is generic quote and may vary slightly depending on your location.I will (as I always try to do) keep the cost to a minimum.Thanks for looking.
