Vintage S. YAIRI Model 650 Classical Acoustic Guitar | Musical Instruments & Gear, Guitars & Basses, Acoustic Guitars | eBay!
An excellent and rare Vintage S.Yairi Acoustic Classical guitar from the 1970’s!!! It has what I think is a solid Cedar top, a beautiful 19 fret dark Rosewood fretboard on a Mahogany neck, Multi-bound Mahogany body, Mahogany back and sides, decorative Rosewood bridge with matching decorative Rosette, Gold tuners with perloid buttons, and it plays and sounds great! The action could be lowered by sanding down the saddle but I will leave that to the new owner. This one is noticabley louder than other guitars with great tone and sustain!
The condition is excellent+(a 9.2 out of 10) with just light signs of use and shows just the slightest fret wear, the guitar is really excellent and clean all around with no problems except for a few light normal scratches and a few light dings on the top(see pics). The action at the 12th fret is a little more than 5/32″, and the saddle height from the bridge is 1/8″. No lifting of the bridge and no separation at the neck joint. The nut width is 2 and 1/16″ and the neck has a wide C shaped profile.
Serial#G2628, made in Japan in the 1970’s I think, includes the excellent original hard case.
