I've not compared the same models, but my 70s GC-3A from Japan was much better than my GC-7A from Taiwan. Besides it just "feels" better to have a guitar from Japanandreas777 wrote: ↑Sat Aug 19, 2017 8:44 amHi Jon,
have you compared Yamaha GC guitars from the late 70ies and early 80ies that were built in Japan and Taiwan, what are your experiences? I have not found big differences in quality so far but I have not compared the same models so maybe there are some.
Too bad its in Japan, they probably won't ship it. At least not legally...
It will definitely be worth your wait provided the seller don't ask for the sky.andreas777 wrote: ↑Sat Aug 19, 2017 6:22 pmI know three (sic!) Yamaha GC30A guitars in Germany. I'm not sure but one was offered online and might have been sold, the other two are currently not offered online. The seller of one guitar told me that he plans to offer it before Xmas this year, so let's wait and see...

Make sure they are made in Japan and not Taiwan.
