About This Listing

HISTORIC JUMBO SIGNATURE GUITAR: Original Vintage 1995 Kazuo Yairi Acoustic Guitar: Yairi JY-10bk (black) jumbo acoustic in mint, like new condition, and sparingly played. Set up by Luthier July 2021. Mirrors Johnny Cash and Every Brothers Trademark Gibson J-200 Jumbo. This beautiful Jumbo has spent its life in non-smoking temperature controlled environments. Solid spruce top with no scratches or dings.  Kazuo Yairi is renown for magnificent  craftsmanship rivaled only by the best vintage Gibson models. This Black Beauty Jumbo was only produced between 1994 and 1998.  

The top is solid spruce while the back and sides are ply maple. There's black finish on all of it and the binding has pretty-looking pearl purfling faux, likely abalone around the top and rosette. The body is 17 1/8" on the lower bout and 4 5/8" deep at the endpin -- making it a true "jumbo." 
It has a rosewood board and bridge and bound edges on the board. The nut is 1 11/16" and the neck is slim and fast with a C-shaped profile -- a bit like a concurrently-built electric.
Beautiful deep and pure bass and treble acoustic amplification. You can hear a sampling of music played on this guitar played by Jake Wildwood on SoundCloud:. 

This Black Beauty is very competitively priced compared with the Gibson J-200 with selling prices between $4000 and $8000. 

Thank you,
