I am not too sure if the BRW has anything to do with it, but a new GC70 cost almost twice as much a GC82.

It has a lot to do with BRW (rare, protected and dwindling stocks) and the comparison is more 1,600,000 Yen to 1,150,000 Yen (from the Yamaha Japanese catalogue): approximately 1.39 times as much.

I am still deciding on buying a second-hand or brand new GC70. For a second-hand GC, I have to consider refurbishing it as I did on my GC30A.

BTW, someone had been pestering me to sell him my GC30A and I have decided to sell it to him. He played on my GC30A a year ago and met me a few times just to enjoy the guitar and he simply loved it and he also has the skill to to make it sing the way it is designed and build for.

Best of luck on finding a used GC70 or if you decide on a new one...Wow!

I have decided to sell my one time "dream guitar" to this gentleman whom I feel will make better use of this beautiful instrument at a "give away price".,
