Thanks Robert for sharing. I used to own a GC41S. I used to enjoy playing it and I sold it after I bought my GC30A. Mine was reasonably loud but lack the punchy bass, tone quality and volume of the GC30A. I believe removing the finish and refinish with a thinner coat will definitely improve it's sound.Robert England wrote:My second classical guitar was a Yamaha GC41C. WRC top with Honduran Rosewood back and sides. This was a beautiful guitar, immaculately finished. But the finish, probably some kind of lacquer or polyurethane, was too thick, especially on the soundboard. I'm not very interested in a loud guitar, but this one was too quiet. I didn't keep it for long.

I have. Nicely built instruments but not on the league on the two I mentioned.....HNLim wrote:Take a look at one and you will know what I mean.petermc61 wrote:Marquetry second to none? I think you need to look at a Field or a Rohe.....
Yes, Jeffrey Elliott's rosettes are stunning too. Now, that's marquetry!bacsidoan wrote:Second to none? Each to his own You mean to tell me that this rosette is not worth a consideration to be one of the best in terms of workmanship? I'll concede that this is just my opinion.
My apology to Mr. Lim.dandan wrote:Don't know how the OP feels, but personally I think its a bit disrespectful to hijack a thread intended for those who appreciate Yamaha GC guitars. Feel free to start your own thread. I also happen to agree the marquetry on the high end Yamaha GC models of the early seventies is exquisite. It may not be to everyone's taste but the craftsmanship is excellent.
