1980s Yamato Model 120. An excellent looking, previously unheard of Japanese Dreadnought


I've seen and worked on a lot of 1970 and newer Japanese acoustics. They are often one of my favourite guitars to work on as a good repair can virtually resurrect a guitar an owner would have deemed unusable.

That said, I've never seen or heard of Yamato. This is a great looking dreadnought with a cedar top and lovely looking rosewood back and sides.

At $250 Canadian this would likely make a great guitar for years to come.

With a good setup, that is.

  1. Yamato is of course a very apt label for a dreadnought, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamato-class_battleship
