Re: YAMAHA FG-160-1

I live in Kenora Ontario Canada. There was a musician who played in Kenora on one particular night many years ago. After the show he had his wallet stolen. My brother had seen the show at the bar and also saw the guy outside selling his guitar amoung other items to get enough money to get back to wherever he was from. My brother bought his guitar for $50.00 and gave it to me in hopes that I might learn to play it some day. I was only around 7 at the time. The guitar is a Yamaha FG-160-1. The musician's initials were on the guitar, GJD, I still have it and I took my first guitar lesson last week. I am 41 now! We have a new friend who is a musician and he put out his own CD a few years ago. He played my guitar while staying with us. I couldn't believe that MY old guitar sounded so deep and rich. Beautiful. He was my inspiration. Why are you looking into this specific Yamaha?

I bought my FG-160 in 1973 or 1974, not sure which year but it was second hand at a music store. It sounds great. not sure if it has a solid top and sides or if its laminated.I tried the serial wizard on the Yamaha web site but no luck.

I own a Yamaha FG-160 and although I don't have any technical info I can tell you it is a fabulous instrument. It hasn't been played in years but I recently decided to start playing again and as soon as I get new strings I will be using it again. Good luck
