Re: Yamaki Guitars

I have a Yamaki Custom Folk M-125 that I purchased in 1972 brand new. It cost $200.00 at that time including the case. I believe it is a Martin New Yorker copy. The guitar has always had great timber and smooth base. About twenty years ago I replaced the tuners with Ovation gearhead tuners. The tuners and the plastic pegs in the bridge were always the weak points. The Ovation tuners allowed for tighter tuneing and I would not trade off this guitar for newer instruments that cost in excess of $1200. At the time that I purchased the guitar from Portland Music Company I was told that the construction of body is Rosewood, the sound board Spruce, the neck Mahogony, and the fret board is Rosewood. It's a beauty!
