Someone that I have never met before but we have corresponded several times via WeChat and email came and paid me a visit all the way from China. He was working on a Cruise ship which docks about once a week at the Singapore Cruise Center. We met several times for lunch and he brought his 1990 Yamaha GC30 with him. He wanted to compare his GC30 with my 1978 Yamaha GC30A. As some of you might have known the GC30A was succeeded by the GC70 in 1984. Both guitars has similar headstock design. This same headstock design appears on the current Yamaha GC82C.
This was how his guitar looks like.
It came with a fiberglass hard case.
The back, sides and neck are so badly "frosted" that it was very unsightly.
The fingerboard and frets were worn out
The bridge was also very badly "frosted".
On his last day in Singapore, at the airport when we were unloading his baggage and guitar, he asked if I could do him a favour. He would like me to give his guitar a "MAKE-OVER".
What? I asked. He said yes, a make-over. What would you do?
