Vintage Yamaha Grand Concert Classical Guitar
Model GC 10D (Nippon Gakki)
This is a beautiful instrument and a very hard to find example of Yamaha’s Grand Concert series from the 1970’s. This top of the line GC 10D was hand made by Nippon Gakki Co. Ltd. in Japan. The serial number is 4072, with year of manufacture 1973. Instrument label bears the signature of the luthier. Sound board is solid cedar, back and sides are rosewood, probably Indian but possibly Brazilian. Fingerboard is ebony and the tuners are of the highest quality. Inlays are gorgeous. The guitar delivers crisp, ringing highs and warm, rich low tones. Originally purchased in 1977 or 78, I am the second owner of this fine instrument and am parting with it only because I have too many guitars. I would like to send this to a good home and someone who will appreciate it. Neck is straight, no warping or fret wear. No issues I’m aware of. Cosmetically it is very good. There is a 1 ˝” scratch that I put on the soundboard while stringing it, and it is the only serious flaw in the finish. Otherwise, minimal bumps and string marks. For a thirty four year old instrument it’s amazing. The original, plush lined Yamaha case comes with the instrument and the original purchase receipt from Schmitt Music Centers in Minneapolis. This guitar has a lovely, mature sound and is a true collector’s item and performing artists’ dream. I will try to answer any questions you might have. Offered with no reserve and a modest opening bid of $399. Thanks for looking and happy bidding.
