Yamaha G 130 A l969?

Posted by Linda on Thu, 12/12/02 - 14:03:11.

Came across a Yamaha acoustic guitar serial number either 9707 or 9207 (hard to read it on the foil label). Model is 69 G 130 A.
Has a neck that's about 2-1/2" wide and 3-1/2" across. 14" wide body and 39-1/2" tall. Can anyone tell me about it? value? Supposed to be a first edition. Want to start taking guitar lessons and traded a ring for this guitar. The gal I got it from bought it new. We can't find any information on it anywhere?

I believe this was made in the '70's. In very good condition, it could bring approximately $300.

Solid spruce top, back and sides are a rare African Zebra wood the neck is koa. This is according to Worthopedia .

Re: Yamaha G 130 A l969?

I have this guitar, I believe. The back and sides
are some striped kind of wood, African looking. The fretboard is sandalwood I believe. The top may be cedar but I don't know. Don't quote me on any of those. The woods do appear to be unique for YAMAHA. The model number on my guitar is just G-130A. There is no 69 prefix. There is some stupid unreadable serial like 3202 on the top right of the label. This page might give you some insight on the age and history of your fine sounding instrument. http://www.guitarist.co.uk/print.asp?ID=6848&type=feat

The striped wood is called Zebra wood. I have the same guitar and that's all I remember from when I purchased it as a kid.
