Same yet different. The Yamaha GC70 and Yamaha GC30A. Both guitars sound awesome.
Beautiful! Now you can enjoy making music... :guitare:

One thing I'd love to be able to buy is the Yamaha soft case; the one that came with my GC22 (now sold)
It was a huge cut above the normal soft case/gig bag standards; twice as much padding, built like a tank, and very durable. I'd love to be able to buy one but nothing's come up in a search.

I'm not sure if it's the same model, but do search for "Yamaha CG-SC Soft Lightweight Classical Guitar Case".

I saw that one but there weren't enough pictures to make a determination. I didn't want to play the case-roulette and be stuck with it or pay a return fee.

Are you referring to the case that comes with the Yamaha GC32 and Yamaha GC42?

I don't know. It might be the same case as the one that came with my GC22 or it might not.

Is this what you are referring to? If so you can buy it from that famous auction site item number 332621852070

I saw that but there isn't enough information to make sure that it's the EXACT same case. I've already bought one that looked "like" it and wasn't. The quality and ergonomics weren't even close to the original. That's why I'm asking if anyone has first-hand knowledge so that I don't have to just buy things and take a risk.

I think those who bought the Yamaha GC32 and Yamaha GC42 should be able to give you a better picture.

The case that came with my GC42 looks similar but not quite the same. And I believe it is the same one for all the GC line. For one thing, it does not have the big Yamaha logo on the front, but a much smaller one on the side. And the handles look different. It is dark green. It is a pretty solid case, not quite as resistant agaisnt crushing as a real hard case. But probably more resistance against shock because of the very good padding. You can place a full suitcase flat on top of it, but not 4 or 5 suitcases as you could with a real hard case. I find it perfectly adequate for all normal usage, except of course I would never check it as luggage in an airplane. But then again I would never check any hard case in that way.

My previous GC41 came with exactly the same case as what the GC82 uses now.
