Looking for a vintage guitar with exceptional quality and sound? Look no further than this Yamaha G-180A, made in Japan in 1973!
With its solid top made of high-quality straight-grain cedar, beautiful dark mahogany back and sides, and mahogany neck, this guitar is a true testament to Yamaha's commitment to craftsmanship.
I have enhanced the bracing to give this guitar even greater dynamic and tonal range. Please have a look at the sound demo video below.
Featuring the same headstock design and rosette as the Grand Concert series, this guitar is not only a beautiful addition to any collection but also a valuable investment. The action is perfectly set at 3.5mm on the first string and 4.0mm on the 6th string at the 12th fret, allowing for loud playing without creating any buzz.
But that's not all! This guitar has been retrofitted with the Fishman Sonitone pickup system, which is discreet and easier to use than other preamp systems. The Sonitone was installed without making any large holes, preserving the guitar's natural and beautiful acoustic tones. It has two dials inside the sound hole for volume and tone control; achieving that classic guitar sound has never been easier.
No more fiddling with complicated multi-band equalizers. The one-dial control allows for a seamless playing experience, and the best part of it is most people won't even realize it's electric until you plug in a lead or wireless transmitter. This means you can enjoy the vintage sound of this classic guitar with modern technology, making it perfect for any musician who values both tradition and innovation.
