Yamaha GC5 classical guitar 1971
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-31)
Price : US $1,425.
I bought this new, 1971 Yamaha GC-5 guitar from the Yamaha store in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1972 or 1973. The serial number 9395.
I have a friend who reads Japanese, and the maker is Ezaki. The GC series of handbuilt guitars was rather short lived. I just contacted
Yamaha, and they said ''This model line was made between 1967 and 1971 listed for $375.00 and has a Solid Pine Top, Solid
Jacaranda Back and Sides, Mahogany Neck, Ebony fretboard and a Jacaranda bridge''. I played it for a couple of years, and then
went back to the double bass. I have to face the fact that after 30 years I won't take it up again. The condition can be described as
nearly new. There have never been any repairs.
I have the original Yamaha case, which is included. It is like new except for the one locking latch. Somewhere along the way I lost
the key, so I had remove part of the latch. The other three latches are fine.
If you live close (ZIP 19547), so can play it before the auction ends.
