Pre-Owned 1970's Yamaha Red Label FG-180 Acoustic Guitar
Fair condition vintage FG-180 from Yamaha. These "Red Label" acoustics made from 1969-1975 were one of the first production acoustic guitars from Yamaha. An original one of these is a great find, it sounds fantastic and although there is apparent wear showing on this instrument, they are a sign of its use over the years and add to it's rustic charm. Made in Taiwan, not sold with a case.
I play bluegrass and this guitar for me sounds and plays great, but it's action is on the high side and has nowhere left to go on the saddle. If someone wants this guitar playing its best, it needs a neck reset. The action currently is 7/64 on the high E string at the 12th fret and 8/64 on the low E. We charge $ 500 for a neck reset. The neck is straight and the guitar sounds so great, I believe it is well worth getting the neck reset done. At this time, I am selling the guitar as is and will let a new owner decide what they would like to do.
