A Well Played but awesome 1970’s Yamaha FG 300...the Cadillac of the Nippon Gakki Yamaha's and this one is terrific.... I grab these whenever I have a chance and have sold at least 2 dozen of these over our Selling years. Everyone of our customers have been thrilled with theirs.... This one sounds, looks and plays great. Jeff the Tech checked it out and set her up.. now she is ready to work for another 50 years!
This is not the same Yamaha FG300 I sold last month..My customer got theirs and they loved it. I found another..If you missed the last one..grab this one..they sell quickly!
Be sure to check out the Video Demo we did for one of these cool guitars a couple years ago. Not this guitar but one just like it.
We can’t tell what year this one is. The Red Label Made in Japan FG300 started in 1969 and changed to Green labels in 1972. It would have been a 1969 thru 1971…One of those years.
These were made in Japan and of course were made to compete with the Gibson Hummingbirds...check out the original Pickguard. They are usually missing but we have the original with this cool guitar. It was cracked, see pics..but we stabilized it for the next owner...Be gentle with it..they are susceptable to cracking....the Pickguard graphics are nice and bright and it looks great ..see pics.....
These are really high quality guitars. It has a Spruce Top, Rosewood Fingerboard, Rosewood Back and Sides and is even X braced.
These guitars were prone to bellying ..this one has very little if any....The bridge is also nice and tight to the body...the factory adjustable bridge is all intact. It is in the lowest setting but can be raised. You will not want it any lower. It plays and sounds great. Huge sound from this Jumbo!
Jeff the Tech did a great job setting it up with easy playing low action. Its a pleasure to play.
This cool Yamaha Guitar Guitar comes complete with the original Hardshell case that fits it great. The case is in great shape. Its not a Yamaha Case but I was assured by the previous owner that it is the original case. Its vintage correct and it fits it great! All latches, hinges and handle are present and working properly. The interior is very nice...see pics..
It is made in Japan and has the original Nippon Gakki Red label inside the soundhole. See pic 5... An awesome guitar .... Some lucky Guitar Player is going to be very happy when they get this one..
It is sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used. However, I have been hand picking vintage guitars for my customers for over 20 years now and they have all loved theirs..This one will not be an exception...
Thanks for checking out my cool guitars.
