Epiphone Broadway Acoustic Guitar 1941 Vintage
Rare Vintage Yamaha FG 450S Acoustic Guitar.
This guitar is solid Spruce top with Ovankol back and sides. Ovankol is one of the tone woods similar to Rosewood and the guitar has a Martin like sound, but not a Martin so don't get that wrong! Guitar has a good sound and is a medium dark sound like unto rosewood. It frets in every position and the string height is well under 1/8 more like 3/32 and there is no noticable bulge in the bridge area at all. The neck is straight and frets are not worn. It has a tusq saddle and Martin bridge pins..There are some dings on the front of guitar but none too noticable 3 feet away. I don't think there are any other marks on the guitar other than a scratch on the back of the headstock and that is not too noticable..There are no buckle marks on the back of the guitar and no dings on the sides either. The headstock is inlayed with a leaf design on the front with mother of pearl and the "Yamaha" is also mother of pearl..The leaves on each side of the bridge are decals and could be removed with lemon oil. They were put on to match the headstock leaf...The fret markers are inlayed mother of pearl snowflakes...It has Martin light Phosphor Bronze strings on it and that is what I recommend on all guitars! It has a strap button on the middle of the neck were it should be..Tuning keys are probably grovers but say Yamaha-Japan...
I am not sure what year this guitar was made but you can check it out by the serial number # 70426157.
I am not positive of the numbers because some of them are not clear...There weren't many of this model imported into the US as I have read it wasn't on the import list. So it is a rare model Yamaha! There is no case with guitar but it will shipped professionally by UPS and fully insured....Any questions just ask!!!
