I have never heard of "the Butterfly".
I'd love to see the label, if you don't mind, of course.
I used to have a GC-3D, but it has signature from Takahide Kaneko.

Actually I was wrong, my label reads: 金子 隆英 (Takahide Kaneko) - The confusion came from another site and their GC3D. Sorry about that :)

I found the following specifications for Yamaha GC-?A guitars that list some additional properties as the Yamaha guitar archive. I always thought that my GC-3A has a laminated back but it seems it's solid.

I don't get it, I played the 3 top end Yamaha go guitars last month . The gc82 cost £10 k ! It sounded worse than a Paco Castillo 204.

I played quite a few Yamaha's, some of them good, others not so. They tend to be on the warm side, at least the older ones, sometimes a little "boxy" sounding. But my GC3D from 1972 is very sweet for example.
