Yamaha Red label FG-75 in San Pedro CA for $135

With the current popularity of the OO and parlor-sized guitars you might want to consider these Yamaha's from the late 60's and early 70's. I thnk the FG-75 appeared around 1969 and these Nippon Gakki Red Label versions are the most desireable. That said, be aware that these are laminated top guitars so the age of the wood is not going to do much to improve the tone - luckily these usually sounded pretty good from the get go. Expect a nice playable guitar with a slightly thick neck and you won't be disappointed.

There was a time when these little Japanese acoustics could be found for $50 or less but that time is pretty much gone.

Yamaha FG-75, red label "Nippon Gakki." These guitars were made in Japan in the 60s and this one has an outstanding sound. It is not as large as a dreadnought size and has a very comfortable feel. Neck and body are in great shape for an almost fifty year-old guitar. Sorry no case.

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
