Re: Yamaki Guitar

I am a guitar dealer and just bought one at a Guitar show. I have learned that Yamakis were made in Japan in the 1970s. They are well made and area great value. They do not seem to be very sought after.

Re: Yamaki Guitar

They were made in Japan in the 70-80's
they changed name to Daion in late 80's
I have 1 of each
They had 2 main levels of quitars, one that were exported and a very high hand made line that stayed in Japan.
Due to when they stopped making them, hard to say what they are worth, the higher end models are going for upwards of $700 - 1000US
hope this helps

Yamaki 6 string Delux Folk no 118 year build 1971

I have purchase this guitar in California at a music shop on Van Nuys Blvd for $ 130.00 US at the time. I also have the same experience music shop same answer never heard off it. I am telling you it is one of the best guitar that I ever had the sound. I would appreciated if someone out there could tell me how much does it worth today.

Re: Yamaki Guitar

I own a 12 string yamaki nd i must say it is probaly one of my favourite instruments. It plays well and sounds fucking great. As far as I know they were made in japan in the 70s and wre sued by yamah over the simalarity of the names. I work in a music store and no one has ever heard of them. Oh well, their loss. Hope that helper you out mate.

I used to have a Yamaki

I used to have a Yamaki 12-string. A guy I jam with owns it now and the sound is phenomenal. It rivals the sound of many high end guitars. I regret ever selling it but at least I still get to play it
