Price : US $821
This is a very nice vintage Yamaha CJ-838S II acoustic guitar.
It was made in the late 1970s or early '80s and is a rare deluxe model Yamaha acoustic. It has a jumbo body (J200 style) with solid spruce top (I think the ''S'' in the model number denotes solid wood) and the back and sides are made of rosewood, or some other similar hardwood, and also appear to be solid. The body measures 16 9/16'' wide at the lower bout and 12 1/4'' wide across the upper bout. Body is 4 3/4'' deep. It has a mahogany neck, a bound ebony fingerboard with pearl block inlays and an ebony bridge.
The headstock is bound with a rosewood overlay and pearl YAMAHA logo with pearl diamond inlays. The top and back have 6 ply binding. The back has a fancy center stripe (see photo). This guitar is all original and and in very good condition. It has some normal minor nicks, scratches and pressure marks but nothing too severe and overall very nice, clean and extremely attractive. There are no cracks, breaks, repairs or problems. The top is flat and the bridge and neck joint are tight. This guitar plays and sounds great even with the old strings. The neck is very straight with good action and normal light fret wear. Includes chipboard case. Very Nice vintage Yamaha CJ-838S II jumbo acoustic guitar in very good condition. Rare.

Bought mine 2nd hand in 1971/2, so it could be older than you think - brilliant guitar
