Is my Yamaha valuable other than sentimentally?

I have a Yamaha FG-435A BL acoustic 6 string. My dad passed it down to me, and he has had it for as long as i can remember. I can't seem to find much information on it at all! It's black and the finish is kinda worn down, and i thought about getting it refinished, but if its worth more than I think, then I don't want to fiddle with it. Does anyone know anything about it? There is a number printed on the wood inside: 21106288 or 21105288

Federico Garcia Guitars

I hope this comment will be considered because it is important for people to know. I wanted to comment on the Federico Garcia guitars. First, it is sad, to say the least, that people will try to justify the amount they naively spent for these guitars and claiming they are worth thousands. I guess we can claim any price, but, being that there is no such luthier ever been born with the name Federico Garcia, I don't care if it is a "grade 1" approved by congress. I purchased one thinking I had a winner, and the guitar was not bad, but definetely not worth more than the 275.00 I spent "used". I never found a shop in Madrid (while visiting my family in Madrid who is in the Flamenco music business), ever existing. So for folks out there, please beware of such claims. There are guitars made in China that sound great as well, but that does not give anyone the right to deceive others by making it sound more prestigeous by adding Spanish sounding names on the tag.

rebuttle

You are either badly misinformed and have not done the necessary research to comment authoritatively about Garcia guitars, or you have some kind of personal vendetta against Sherry-Brenner. You may be very right that a Luthier named Federico Garcia did not exist. However, it is no crime or misrepresentation to put the name Garcia on any guitar or other product if that name is not legally recorded as the property of others. Further, it is common practice in the guitar industry as well as other industries , to put romantic sounding names on good products as well as poor products, which Garcia guitars are not. During the course of my research, I have discovered that the preponderance of evidence clearly proves that the Federico Garcia guitars were manufactured in Spain early on and that the manufacturing was indeed moved to Japan mid to late 1970 as the progression of label modifications clearly show. Although I am not particularly impressed with the Garcia grade 3s, I have found that even a later grade 2, properly set up and strung with high quality strings appropriate to the type of music being played, performs well against current guitars costing in the thousands. However, I do thank you for your efforts to denigrate these fine guitars, as your efforts (no matter what your motivation) have apparently kept the resale price of the brand inappropriately low, which has allowed me the opportunity to purchase some of these fine instruments for very little money. Frankly, I don't know whether to bless you or curse you.

i need info on a Bradford Guitar that has been around since Columbus Sailed somebody hook a dude type individual up.

Re: bradford

: i need info on a Bradford Guitar that has been around since Columbus Sailed somebody hook a dude type individual up.

Re: bradford

Dude I have one also and it's from the mid to late 20's. It's built very well. I can't find much on the company other than they started as a furniture shop in Chicago then somehow started making these guitars. I also found info on a Japanese company making crap firewood quality guitars under the same name but with a different logo, similar to this standard print here 'Bradford' but with a raised stamping and not the usual cursive print or the " at the peak of the head stock. Other than that I along with many others can't find anything else on them... Which is frustrating non the less.

If you or ANYONE has info on these guitars email me please ozzice@gmail.com

Taiwan FG140 Red Label

I bought a red label Taiwan FG140...mistook it for Japanese Nippon Gakki.(yes..on E Bay!).. It does sound good..but...
I just wondered if anyone knows if the Japanese Fg140 is that much better than the Taiwan guitar, and anyone know the value of these 2 guitars...John

Re: Taiwan FG140 Red Label

I do not own a 140 but I own two FG-110's. One is a Nippon Gakki and the other a Tawian version (1970s). Both are stellar sounding and fairly light. Some Nippon Gakki's had solid tops. Other than that...there really is not much difference other than the collectible status of the Nippon Gakki's. For a small investment outlook, I personally would go for the Nippon Gakki's. For tone and playability...either one is fine as long as there are no structural issues. I love playing both of my FG-110's and would never sell them.
