Has anyone know how rare a Yamaha G - 231 is?

I found one in the the trash. Some guy was getting rid of it so I picked it up and checked on ebay and found out its worth $89.00 it sold for on there. I was woundering if anyone knew anything about it.

G231

Well I just bought one at a Pawn shop in gallup, New Mexico for a great price. It had been sitting a few years. It's only my second guitar, but I liked the price and needed a travel one. In looking at it, I see the Bass strings are Metal and the upper 3 are Nylon. How come? I need to replace the d string asap.

thanks!

G 231

I've got several high end guitars but the one I play most is my old G 231 it's so easy to fret and it sounds as one post read so mellow I love it

Yamaha G-231

I bought mine new in 1979 and I have had no desire to upgrade. The sound is so mellow. I took a great guitar player with me when I picked it out and he highly praised the sound that came out of it back then. It hasn't changed. I have added the Dean Markley Acoustic Guitar Pickup to it for additional fun in the electric realm!

I don't about rare but it's a shame someone would have thrown it out. I've had one since 1983 and love it. I keep thinking it's time to upgrade, but every time I visit a music store to search for a new CG I end up back with my g231 and feeling as though it sounds better and plays better then guiters 10x as much.

well they are not rare at all but they do sell new for about $150-$200. You could have sold it used for more than $89.

If you read the message properly, you would of noticed the guy didn't sell his for $89, but someone on EBAY did. Just wanted to know what its worth. $150-200 sounds about right.

Again- I don't know if it's rare... it matters more how well it's been taken care of the sound is, etc. I have a 30 year old g231 and LOVE IT. The action is a little high... but all in all I wouldn't trade it
