I've got a FG-300 Nippon Gakki Yamaha. It is in good shape with theexception that the pickguard fell off and it is reglued on less the satisfactory. I oould have that fixed or sell it as is. Other wise in very good shape. I am the original owner. It was bought in 1971 in California.

I had an FG280. Fantastic guitar with light guage strings on it. The sound was fantastic. Unfortunately last week I was travelling home from england and it was damaged by the airline (rather brutalised beyond repair) Can anyone give me an idea of what it was worth for insurance purposes. I bought this from new about 27 years ago. Thanks

Re: wanted: yamaha fg's 1969-1974

:I have a FG580 purchased around 1962 by me.. I used this instrument from that time to approx. 1985 as a stage instrument so it has some use marks.. It's in pretty good shape tho' and still sounds great.. The action is still fantastic and I still enjoy playing it once in a while as I own quite a few instruments now.. It's original except for a "Shadow" pick-up mounted under the bridge and a "shadow" end-pin plug installed...

Re: wanted: yamaha fg's 1969-1974

Hi Sam,
similarly I have an FG180 Nipon Gakki label 772238

Re: wanted: yamaha fg's 1969-1974

Hi-

I have a Yamaha (Nippon Gakki) FG-1000. I bought it used while I was in Japan in the mid 1980s. I believe it was made during this period. I am not sure I want to sell but I was hoping that you might have info on this model as the Yamaha archive and the blue book do not. It looks much like a FG-2000 with the 3 panel back and abalone lining all the seams. Thanks. Karen

Re: WANTED: Yamaha FG-180 - '68-'72

I'm looking for an FG-180 from the late sixties/early seventies. I expect there to be some wear on the body, but would be thrilled to find one in mint condition. At the very least, it should be in very good condition -- bascially, I don't want to have to fix anything. I'd prefer a red label Nippon Gakki, but I'll consider anything from '68-'72. If you have one you'd like to sell and are willing to ship to the midwest, please let me know!

Vintage Yamaha 12 string electric - any info?

My grandfather gave me this old 12 string electric Yamaha and I haven't been able to find any info on it. The body looks similar to the old SG's by the pictures that I have found and it says Nippon Gakki on the head. It plays great and I was just wanting to see about what it is worth. Any ideas on where I could find some info?

SG-500 Confusion...

Hello all,

I'm looking at a SG-500B and while trying to find some background info on it, I discovered there are a few SG-500 variants. This one has a bolt-on neck, toggle by the pots - thin binding on the top only, uncovered pups, dot inlays - I've seen SG-500 with set necks, the toggle on the upper cutaway, fat markers, etc. How many different SG-500's are there - Trying to date the axe I'm looking at and also if a bolt-on is really as good as the set-neck - Any help appreciated -

wanted: FG-180 and other Nippon Gakki FG Yamaha's

Hey All,

First, I'm looking for an FG-180 in very good condition with low action. Must be RED label Nippon gakki.

Second, I'm looking for any other RED label Nippon Gakki FG's in good condition. I'm not a dealer, I just like themand am looking to add a few good ones to my collection.

Third, there ARE some Yamaha FG's that are Nippon Gakki that are NOT RED label, but a sort of greenish/brown label from the early 70's. Anything would be nice.

If anyone has anything for sale please contact me. Thanks in advance.

Yamaha SC1000

I see a few posts for the SC800 and the SC1200 but zip for the SC1000 that I have owned since about 1982. I bought it used then so reckon on between 77 and 80. Does anybody know anything about this. Like the other models it seems quite rare and is just a great, flexible guitar.

Re: Yamaha SC1000

Ron Strykert from men at work used one on all the albums he did with them. Check out his website there is even a photo of his sc-1000!.
