Salutations from Seattle!

Post by Signalius » Sat Sep 15, 2018 6:49 pm

Hi all- My name is Ben B. and I am a musician whose love for the classical guitar began when I had the opportunity to buy a 1975 S. Yairi guitar for cheap back in 1999. At one point it was the only guitar I had and would play it often. It sat unused for a few years while I pursued other interests until one day I was invited to play an improv set with a friend at Seattle's Pink Door. The audience was to call out topics and I would make up a song and my friend would make up lyrics. When I got up on stage and opened my case I realized I had taken to tuners off to replace them years ago and never put them back on! I played piano that night instead. My interest in the classical guitar was recently rekindled when I came across a mysterious Japanese guitar at an estate sale and found this forum in an attempt to identify it. I’m looking forward to sharing some photos with some of the experts on this forum to unravel the mystery of this beautiful instrument!
