About This Listing

Another fantastic acoustic by one of my favorite Japanese builders, Yamaki. This one has the rare “Buffalo Head” headstock found on select models in the late 1970’s. Features all laminate construction with a spruce top and maple back and sides. Features real abalone inlays on the neck and headstock. Original Yamaki tuners. Great sounding guitar! Hard case.

Action at 12F (1st): 0.120”
Action at 12F (6th): 0.160”

Rare Factor: 11 out of 10

USA Seller, check my feedback to see how I value my customers and see my other listings for more rare Japanese Guitars and other unique gear! i use recycled packaging for reduced environmental impact and ship all items 100% insured against loss or damage.

This one has a lot of finish checking and plenty of small marks and dings, see pictures. There is also a small crack in the heel. The back has a couple of small patches of finish loss, there are no cracks in the wood aside from the one in the heel. The action is on the high side but the truss Rod works and the action can be lowered to your liking with a saddle adjustment as there is plenty of meat on the saddle. Neck is good, frets have some minor wear but no playability issues.
