Righteous 1969 Yamaha red label "Nippon Gakki" FG 140 dreadnought acoustic guitar, made in Japan. These are the shizzle... The 11th Commandment of vintage guitars is "thou shalt not pass up a red label Yamaha dreadnought!" This is a nice one. Moderate strumming wear on top, including some above the soundhole, but the back and sides are quite clean. Just light surface scuffing and a few scratches. Nothing heavy. Good neck, frets, and joint, and action is a comfortable 3/32". It could go lower, but I think this guitar is at its best when getting played hard, so lower string height might buzz. Strap button added on heel. Bridge pin holes are a little over-reamed and over-grooved. Guitar has original pins, but I'm thinking of going with unslotted pins to tighten up the fit. Originals would be in case of course. Phenomenal tone and projection. Percussive bass and nicely defined mids and highs. Gator molded plastic plush case.

Real charges only - no added materials or handling charges. All guitars insured for full value. I will use the least expensive shipping available, although this may be slow in some circumstances (e.g. parcel post). Please let me know if you desire a faster, albeit more, expensive service. Please allow 2 - 4 days of time to prepare and pack your guitar IN ADDITION to the actual shipping transit.

NO buyer's remorse PLEASE! Damage or loss in shipping = insurance claim (with which I will be glad to assist you). At my discretion, a disatistfied buyer may return a guitar (with a thorough explanation) for a full refund of purchase price but not of shipping. I'd rather begrudgingly take back a guitar than truly disappoint a customer. If, however, I have ever made a serious error in identification/originality/damage etc. that negatively affects a guitar's value, then a full refund including shipping will be given. PLEASE file any return claims ASAP - seven days at most.
