Yamaha FG-170 - Vintage - Estate Sale Find
Small body Yamaha Vintage guitar
15' lower bout, 11' upper bout, 9' waist, 19.5' body length, body depth front 3.5', rear 4 '
My observations are:
Body dings, scrapes, and scratches about normal for a played older guitar. Headstock edge dents fewer than usual and back of neck is in good shape.
Not a lot of fret wear and fingerboard wear.
No cracks in body, one gouge on front as in picture, other scrapes, scratches exist.
Nice aged color and gloss.
Neck is straight.
Neck to body joint appears solid.
Action is 4/32 Low E at 12th fret.
Bridge has been sanded some and saddle has been lowered for a decent setup.
Tuners are Yamaha, I think all parts of guitar are original. Tuners hold tune and turn freely w/o binding.
Made in Taiwan. Serial number is 21108302. I believe that this guitar was built in 1972, however, that's only my guess. I do not know for a fact.
Martin lights installed, guitar cleaned, set up and ready to play.
Shipping costs, insured, paid by buyer will be $29. Payment by Paypal only.
This would be a wonderful starting instrument or one for collectors or the campfire. A good solid performer. No troubles here.
