Yamaha G-50 A Classical (Nippon Gakki Co. Ltd.) originally sold between 1969-1972. Spruce top, Katsura back/sides, Nato neck, Bubinga fingerboard & bridge. I'm not finding any other distinguishing serial numbers anywhere, other than the aforementioned model # on the sound hole label, so no exact year known.
I picked this up about 6 years ago at Eastern Market in DC from a nice man who sold/sells old odds & ends up near where all the jewelry & crafty stuff is sold. It was just sitting out on the sidewalk in the blistering hot sun and had a rather significant sunken area between the sound hole & bridge. After several months of being in my home, the top came back up, almost flat. Has a real nice sound.
I will get some better images up a lil later.
