I would say around $350 today.jdart3000 wrote:Hi All -
I'm sure someone here might have an answer to this or at least a good guess. About 40 years ago, when my wife and new baby were seriously poor, I used to stop by the Sam Goody record store to play one of their classical guitars. (My own Kay folk/classical left a lot to be desired, so it was a treat to play something better.) I do not know the model number but I remember being surprised that I could play pieces I couldn't play on my Kay and play them with ease. The sound was very full and rich (at least by comparison). This was in 1975 and their price was $75. That was a princely sum for a family for whom ice cream was an unreachable luxury. So I contented myself with occasional visits to the store. From time to time I think of that experience and wonder how much a $75 1975 Yamaha guitar would cost in 2017. Any guesses?
You could buy one today for about $100.jdart3000 wrote:Hi All -
