Re: Yamaha G 130 A l969?
I recently bought a Yamaha G-130A classical guitar. Mine has rosewood back and sides not zebra wood.
: : 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
: : Good Luck
: : Please respond with any new discoveries you encounter.
: I have that guitar too. The serial number is 8202 and is on the wood strip under the rosace.(i am french from quÃ©bec)
: The wood of back and sides is Zebrawood.Rare for a guitar. I buy that guitar in 1971 in quÃ©bec.Very good instrument with superior sound.Concert guitar in think.
