Here we have a lovely vintage Yamaha FG-200. This is a great vintage acoustic. It plays beautifully well, the neck is straight & the action is excellent, with room to adjust if necessary. There are no splits, repairs or bellying of the table etc & the Rosewood bridge is firmly fitted and tight to the body. It has a very rich & warm tone & is currently fitted with a brand new set of 12-53 brass wound strings.She sleeps in possibly her original period correct case, the case is in perfect condition.
It shows general age related sign of use such as the odd scratch & ding, but given that its heading toward 50 years old, it is in super condition. We noted that there has been machine head replacements over time, she is currently fitted with slim oval head machines, however they are period correct, so they may be the originals! The serial number on the neck block is 0213371 & the number on the cross brace is 20109255 making it 1972
The purpose built Taiwan Yamaha factory made excellent guitars to easily rival the Japanese made guitars back in the 1970s. There is nothing like an old Yamaha & thought by some to be the best laminated tops ever built! The build quality is good as the Taiwan factory was a Japanese Yamaha factory simply moved to Taiwan, so the QC was high.
All in all, this is a great value acoustic & perfect for the beginner-intermediate player as well as vintage guitar collector.
