I also have a N-18 Nagoya which I had the inside rebuilt a few years ago by a classical guitar maker up here in Connecticut to repair it and lower the action. I must have bought it in maybe 1977 around the DC area . It may have been from Venimans music but cannot remember.I know that they were built in Japan. I have a friend in Japan who can
maybe run down the history on the guitar maker.Thos is the only info I could find on the net about Nagoya.

Nagoya Acoustic Guitars neck repair

Does anyone have any advice about resetting the neck? My luthier can't find the bolt.

Best,

John

Re: Nagoya Acoustic Guitars

I have a NAGOYA N-12-18 (12 string). It is in great shape. The action is a little slow as you might suspect as you move away from the top of the neck. Sound is ok, I play a '69 Gibson and new Custom Martin so I am spoiled a bit....

I have a model N12-30 s/n74082257 purchased at Veneman Music in MD by K. Leroy 6/23/75. I picked it up at a garage-sale in southern MD in 1999 for a song and it's gorgeous and sounds awesome. Looks like a spruce top and rosewood sides and back. Would love to get more information on it like type of rosewood? Solid or laminate?
etc. If anyone knows where I can go for more info please contact me. Thanks in advance, Mike.

Re: Nagoya Acoustic Guitars

I have a nagoya 12 string that I bought in 1975. I remember that when Takamine first came out if you looked closely at the pictures in their early catologues they were nagoyas. Maybe this will clear up some of the questions about what happened to nagoya-I believe they became takamine.: I also have a N-18 Nagoya which I had the inside rebuilt a few years ago by a classical guitar maker up here in Connecticut to repair it and lower the action.

Re: Nagoya Acoustic Guitars

I have a Nagoya N 12.28 serial #73122498 that I bought at Veneman Music in about 1972-73. I have had the action lowered, but it always stays in tune and sounds very good.
I once had it appraised at Norm's Guitar in Tarzana, CA, and Norm thought that it was worth only about 400-$500. I dont remeber what I paid for it.

Should be noted that Yasuma also built guitars for the years 1970-1973.., I assume there is a link between both guitar labels.

Re: Nagoya Acoustic Guitars

: Dang! We all have the same question, I guess, but no answers. I also have a Nagoya N-18 that I bought from Veneman's Music in Springfield, VA in -- 1972, I think -- after someone stole my magnificent Epiphone acoustic. Although I cannot remember what I paid, my recollection is that it wasn't much, maybe not more than $100, amazingly enough. I didn't have a potload of money back then so I couldn't have paid much.

I love this guitar. It's sound is rich and full and it has great action, even though, for me, the body is a bit big. I really should play a 000. I have not been able to find out any information on its current value.

Re: Nagoya Acoustic Guitars

i, too, have a nagoya---an f-10 that i bought off my brother back in the mid 70's for $60... it is my favourite guitar. he also bought it at a veneman music in suburban dc. it is amazing--never goes out of tune and has the best sound. i like it better than my sister's gibson, my younger brother's guild and my older brother's martin. and up against them it definitely holds its own. i would appreciate any info on them you might have! thanks!

Re: Nagoya Acoustic Guitars

I justr found one in my house.Theres a storage space under my stairs and there were two cases with these abandonded guitars in them.One was the Nagoya and the other was a 12 string Vantage.Both strung up and played very well.The Nagoya is still solid and never go's out of tune and looks like a Martin 0018.Sounds great.They were here in the Dc area,sold at Venemans Music In Va and here in Silver Spring Md.
I was concidering selling it but man does it play good and it's very rare.

Re: Nagoya Acoustic Guitars

I was wondering if there was any more info on these guitars. I have a N-28 model Nagoya serial# 80425 that was lent to me by a friend, he later decided to let me keep it. He said that it was a forign brand of Fender and that his Uncle gave it to him when he started playing guitar some 15 years ago, they lived in the Virginia area at the time. It has a nice tone to it, the action is a little high for me, going to see if I can get that fixed, and I am considering putting some electronics in it to make it an acustic/electric.
I am glad I found this forum, its cool to know that others have and know something about these guitars.

Cheers!
David

I own a Nagoya N-18, also purchased at Venemans in Springfield, I believe in 1975, but I could be wrong. The sales guy pitched me the Nagoya as a Martin copy when I went in to the store set to buy a comparably priced Yamaha. He was persistant that I get the Nagoya instead of the Yamaha. I am so glad he pressured me! Mine has survived 25 years of Florida heat and humidity and still is a great sounding guitar.
