The guitar was well used when I rang up my parents to get them to agree to buy it for my 21st birthday present in 1983. The style and internal blue label with printed 'made in Japan' dates it 1973-75. This guitar got me through loads of jams and sing alongs in the early 80s and the first comment was always "that guitar's really loud!" The second was always that the bolt on neck and low action made it feel like an electric to play. Is it any good? Well it certainly responds to a new set of bronze strings, has survived a huge amount of abuse and I'm still playing it after 36 years. Although I have got through nine bass guitars and six electric guitars, I've never felt the need to get a second acoustic.

This guitar ,sn 750253, was bought in Jacksonville Fl. several years before I left in 1973. It is a surprise to read the official production date starting in 1973. Young friends that are professionals are impressed with the solid, heavy construction and deep sound produced. It is very durable as can be evidenced by its journey with me as a teenager playing on Jacksonville Beach through many changes in life; including over 3 decades of marriage with beautiful, hot Latin woman, and now is servicing me while teaching a talented 8 year old grandson to play his first guitar. This guitar is kind to a beginner as the strings are easy to press and the surfaces are flat, not at all influenced by changes in environment for four decades
