Price : US $510
Yamaha FG 180 vintage dreadnaught Red Label (Nippon Gakki) circa 1968. This is one of the earliest 180s shipped from Japan. I bought it in March of 1968 andd have had it ever since. Played but not abused. Condition very clean, only slight surface scratches on face. Action good - set up low w. Martin 80/20 Marquis strings (12 gauge) which I find give it the best sound. Sounds great. Really resonant with long sustain equal to more expensive guitars of its style. Original tuning heads still working well - plays in tune - stays in tune. With aftermarket hard shell case that is more solid and rugged than the Yamaha HSCs of the period. Only one serial number - inside on base of neck - 710534. A sweet instrument.
