I'm sure your right, according to a Yamaha review on MusicRadar this could have changed in 2012

The GC32 was introduced in 2012...it was not made before that.

I might have a line on a used GC32S Is $1000 reasonable for this guitar?

The lowest price I've seen online is around $1700US new. So if the condition is fine, sounds okay to me.

That would be a pretty good deal if the guitar has been kept in good condition. Also, you know the guitar is newer than 2012, so it can't be too bad. New, it is a $1700 guitar. Plus, it is made in Japan and will have excellent workmanship.

If I could find a used GC32 for a price like that, I would go for it.
