For consideration, a truly exceptional piece from the stable of Yamaki, regarded by many as the best Japanese maker of the day.

A late 70’s model based on Martin D28 schematics with some extra bling, the tone really is phenomenal and it has to be said - nothing short of emotional!

The structural and cosmetic condition really is first class for a guitar that is 40+ years,

There are of course some light traces of use as expected and as pictured, this isn't mint yet overall excellent.

Setup-wise, there is some small amount of adjustment room left on the truss rod and saddle (which is not usual for this vintage) - current action is very acceptable already, 3.5mm @ 12th fret and about 1.5mm @ 3rd fret, plays very smoothly.

With a guitar of this nature and condition we have only needed to make some light adjustments to ensure optimum playability.

Supplied unrestored and in original condition and original case, as described here and photographed, if you require any further information, or any particular setup or string preferences then please enquire.

Otherwise player ready, a magnificent piece from Japans’ finest.
