Hello,

I have a Fg160 1975 Acoustic Yahama.
Did you find out any more info about yours.
Do those guitar have any value today.
No intention to sell, it was my first guitar.
I play on Gibson and Gitane.
But love to know about the value.
Thank you for your input.

I bought a Yamaha FG-160 in the early 80's, second hand, paid £40.00 for it. The action is still good and the tone has improved over the years....very mellow tone now. I've bought a number of acoustic guitars since but always go back to the Yamaha.

I bought my first acoustic when I was in my first or second year of college 71 or 72. It was an fg-160. I still have it and play it often. Most folks say it sounds great. I had the neck adjusted and some other work on it to make it play a bit better through the years, but nothing major. Mine has a brown label inside, not a green one for whatever that is worth.
