Dating yamaki guitars dating websites in south korea
Happened to see this post in my email this morning. Many of the brand names on guitars were distributor names, and they used multiple manufacturers.
Some manufacturers also worked with other manufacturers to complete their projects.
It took me a week to arrange a time to meet with the seller after confirming the width measurement of the lower bout. I might even need to raise it a little to play slide on them.
Here are the specs on the FG-75: Upper Bout - 11-1/8" Waist - 9-5/8" Lower Bout - 14-5/8" Depth at tail - 4" Depth at neck - 3-3/4" Body Length - 19- 1/8" Total Length - 39-1/8" 14 frets to the body From Yamaha's database: Year(s) Sold: 1968-1974 Original MSRP(US$): 9.50 Top: Spruce Back / Sides: Agathis Neck: Nato Fingerboard: Indian Rosewood Bridge: N/A Notes: Folk Guitar Classic Type EDIT: The FG-75 uses ladder bracing with longitudinal braces on the sides of the sound hole.
A good book for reference is " History of Japanese Electric Guitars" by Frank Meyers (we actually sell this book, but I am not certain if it is appropriate to post links into this forum) *Guyatone-made guitars may have also been sold under the following names, though not all guitars under the following label have been made by Guyatone: Confirmed: Broadway, Conrad, Conqueror, Delta, Empire, Feather, Futurama, Ibanez, Kent, Kingston, Hy-Lo, Lancer, Lake, Lafayette, Marco Polo, Musician, Nobco, Noble, Orpheus, Orpheum, Raven, Regent, Roamer, Royal Artist, Saturn, Silvertone, Star, Starlite, Univox, Vox *NOTE: Musician & Julian were model names used on some of their respective models, but are often mistaken for a brand name.
I notice Alverez and more notably Yairi are not included. Yairi are marketed under a few names in the US: Yairi & Sons, Kohno, Shelly, and Wilson are some of the names.
After doing extensive reading here on the forum, I decided to look for some vintage Yamaha guitars to use for slide blues.
I wanted one to tune in Open D, and another to tune in Open G.
It too is a Red Label, Nippon Gakki, Made in Japan guitar. I couldn't believe that I had found 2 of these guitars that had straight necks, and no need for a reset, with very low action.It's far from being complete, but a base to start with.Please add whatever is missing The listing includes brands from 1950 - 1980 Hello, Nate from Guyatone here.Images, videos and audio are available under their respective licenses.As there are regularly questions on Japan made guitars I gathered what I found on the brands/manufacturers.
