Vintage 1979 K. Yairi YW-800G (Grammer Model)

$ 2500.00

 Up for grabs is the coveted (and rather rare) K. Yairi YW-800G (“G” for “Grammer”). I wanted this guitar in the worst way for the longest time -I think they’re one of the sexiest-looking acoustics ever made- and finally got my hands on this one through Akira’s MIJ Guitar (a Japanese-based seller on Reverb). Unfortunately, my freakishly small hands have made playability a problem for me, so I’m relegated to sticking with guitars that have a thinner neck profile. If it weren’t for that, I couldn’t see myself ever getting rid of this guy. Anyway… here are the specifics per Akira’s listing:
“Dreadnought style
Made in 1979, serial: #22089
Body is laminated Brazilian Rosewood
Neck is Mahogany Medium soft V shape profile
43.8mm Nut width, 2.3kg weight, Fingerboard and Bridge is Ebony
