1971 Yamaha FG150 Red Label Nippon Gakki 000 Japan crafted in top players shape fully Pro set-up... SOLD OUT|
SOLD OUT ...Here is yet another GREAT Sounding and PLAYING Nippon Gakki 000 Red Label made in the famous Nippon Gakki plant in Japan. Absolutely surprising Booming tone from a small package who would have guessed these sound so great...
This one is in excellent vintage condition that is to say all the important structural components of this guitar are in good shape that is to say that this guitar has GOOD BONES…. NO CRACKs its neck angle alignment is still good to this day its top is for the most part flat and its Bridge is nice and tight to its top … it appears to be a solid two piece center seam Sitka Spruce top and its cross braced like an old Martin , This guitar is over 40+++ years old and has been played and is not mint of course it has its share of superficial dings and drinks but nothing that can deter its ability to play great and sound great and look Fantastic with its Vintage Amber top and lush PATINA its a classic 000 that has THE SOUND!…. When we received it I loved the sound immediately it was pretty deep and rich sounding for such a small guitar with old cruddy strings I was thinking but like many of these Old Yamaha’s the action was too high so I did have to do our full JVGuitars UPGRADE set-up to it so I stripped its old strings off..its cheap plastic nut & saddle and bridge pins tossed to garbage, its fingerboard was remarkably clean and rut free and the pearloid inlays look great vivid with that patina of 40+ years and the frets were not bad with just minimal groves so I adjusted true rod -leveled -dressed & polished the frets, cleaned fingerboard and Lemon oiled the rosewood fingerboard and the bridge which is crack free as well.. all is looking and feeling great now..
Then using hyde glue installed a Martin Bon nut and a compensated bone saddle was fit
following up with a quality set of fancy Rosewood bridge pins with Abalone and brass ring
they fit sung for optimum tone resonance transfer. This has made a markable improvement in
its resonance and its a bit louder now too SWEET sounding now!
When we got this one it has a small chip at sound hole just under the fat bass E string
looks like an aggressive finger style did the damage and was at the sound hole edge
and I have successfully repaired this same sort of spot before so I wasn’t worried
this one was nick named “Chip" for this reason
I since repaired the spot using the professional woodworking Mohawk system of melting in a resin bar with jot knife that was spruce color then graining the repair and top coating brush tip matching lacquer to the repair spot area to blend…. its not really noticeable anymore now and is a non issue. I did notice that someone changed the tuners for other old Yamaha FG tuners tiny holes didn't line up but this makes no difference in performance what so ever and is not even noticeable they are Yamaha tuners. Overall structurally this guitar is still in top condition players
and it really has that beautiful vintage 40+++ year old Martin like Patina aura about it.... i
its VINTAGE PATINA and character is absolutely beautiful
this is in the eye of the beholder of course but if your vintage lover
you’ll appreciate this instrument for what she is.
This Old guitar plays like a $ MUCH more expensive guitar any day...
People of all walks of life worldwide on the net are comparing the sound of theirs to a Martin
it take years for a guitar’s tone to naturally open up like this guitar has
set up and plays and sounds amazing
and the price is right
