Well I contacted Yamaha in late June and requested an update on delivery. I was informed that the guitar was "a bit delayed" and that it was in production with an expected completion in July. The possibility of a delay due to preparation of CITES documentation was also mentioned. In the end after a week of emails...should be delivered to me in August or September. Looks like September to me. Ah well:

"Magnificent Outpouring"

It is said that all the good things
Must come to him who can pretend
He doesn't have to wait
For as surely as the light of day
Must come to drive the night away
The needles and the pins
That's where the line begins
With your magnificent outpouring
Of that old familiar story
That's been used a million times
To ease a million minds

I am just wondering how can I go about ordering a Yamaha GC70?

You cannot order a Yamaha GC70, or a GC70C, GC71, GC60. All these models use Jacaranda/Brazilian Rosewood and under CITES restrictions cannot be exported from Japan. You can order a GC82S/C as these models use Madagascar Rosewood and can be exported with the proper CITES documentation.

P.S. I have two lovely Royal Selangor pewter steins from Singapore.
