One thing Yamaha has going for them is excellent quality control. The folks at Cordoba would do well to confer with the folks at Yamaha and implement similar quality-control procedures.
That model was the Yamaha GC30A (Spruce/BRW) and later the Yamaha GC30B (Cedar/BRW).Peter Frary wrote: ↑Wed Sep 06, 2017 5:05 pmI used to work for Yamaha music in the 1980s. Although long ago and far away, they were serious about their classical guitar line and produced luthier made models rarely to seen outside of Japan. At that time they brought in Spanish luthiers to make their upper line in Japan. I got to play play several of the high end models and they were very good and projected well, albeit a little on the bright side for my taste. As I recall, the top model was about $10,000, huge money back in the day.
The GC50 I had was made by Katoh. Beautiful guitarlawcch wrote: ↑Wed Sep 06, 2017 3:51 pmFYI, Liona had the Yamaha GC70 C model (not the GC70) and was made by Toshio Katoh.
