I have an old FG-110 in OK condition. Couple of scratches but other than that fine. Does anyone know what it is worth?

Thanks for any help you all can offer.

Yamaha F110

Bought mine 30 years ago 2nd hand love it...a beautiful sound.....

FG -110E

I have one with a pickup from the early 70's, 1972. Bought it at CHARLIE BEANS. I have literally had this guitar half way around the world on tours and shows with no more than the black fiberboard case it came with. It is built like a tank. It has been in the back of trucks, cars, on ships and in the holds of airliners and baggage carousels, sun, cold, wind and rain. It still sounds great and is my everyday leave on a stand acoustic guitar. When I get inspired, I reach for her, she delivers every time. She is made in Japan and has the tan Hammamatsu label. Her action is very high above the 4th fret but I'm used to it. She is a laminate through and through, except for the neck, probably why she's lasted so long. Contrary to what everyone thinks, laminates are the way to go if you're going to be traveling a lot, they can really take a beating and with pickups being so good these days the solid wood thing isn't as important, unless of course you are playing mic'd up or pure acoustic. BTW the pick up that came on this guitar stinks, very coney sounding. When I went back out to perform after a long hiatus, I first used this guitar with a pop in Dean Markley pickup. Worked fine with a volume pedal. I have retired her from live performances and moved on to a Taylor GA3 with a K&K Pure Mini setup. I can look at this guitar and be reminded of so much that has come and gone in my life. I would never sell her.

yahama fg110

i have a Yamaha 110 my wife bought for me at a pawn shop for $80 35 years ago. it has lived very hard, never had a case or even a gig bag. tossed around, travelled the country by the strap on my back. rode hard and put up wet more times than i can count. it has more dings, scratches and stains than one can count.....it is still my number one. this guitar is not for sale at any price.

Yamaha FG110

My FG110 was bought at a Franchised Yamaha dealer in Bankok in 1970.
It has a really big sound (Others at folk gatherings have commented on it.) but it has a very hard action. I gave it to my daughter, who never played it and now I have it back. All my calusses are gone now so it will be a while before I can play it much.
What I want to know is, what is the significance of the "KL" on the back batten just above the label (which is orange, BTW.)?

Yamaha FG-140

I am trying to date my much loved red label FG140 bought from a workmate in '71/2 in UK. The serial number is 1189976. The Yamaha serial number identification site doesn't recognise it but I gather that is not unusual. Any help please?
Also, I bought it in a cream coloured 'cardboard' type case with brown plastic edging to the seams and lined in red felt.The case has long since been painted black and now consigned to the attic in favour of a Hiscox hardcase. Were these guitars sold with a case and if so could the one described above be authentic?

Perhaps one of the 1s in the

Perhaps one of the 1s in the serial is actually an l?

$ 300 CAUSE ITS FROM THE 70 S RIGHT? IT CAN BE MORE FOR COLLECTORS I SUPOSSE

fg 110

if the fg 110 is made in the republic of china pre 82 and if it was played everyday for its life ,,, it is worth thousands. if it just sat in the corner or in a case it is worthless. one of the best if not the bes mass produced guitars of all time.

I had a 1974 that was listed at about $120.00.
I am trying to replace it now. Most auctions are going at $75 to $125 dollars. Not much. But, just try to get one. They go real fast.
