I suspect that a GC71 would add a different character and tone colour to your collection.
I am also thinking of a GC20 or a GC30B.

Remember Anthony Weller, please help. Contact myself or Aaron Green for details.

Here is my lovely GC-31C which I believe is a 2010 model, be great if somebody could confirm this? The serial starts XP.

It's a lovely guitar and sounds great. Really happy with it.

Very nice. I think 2010 is correct. There’s a serial number chart for Yamaha acoustic and classical guitars that you can pull up with a google search.
Yeah that's what I did but it's not the easiest to understand!

It worked for mine. I have a 2007 GC31. I’d already known when it was made. The System #A5 chart confirmed that year.

I recently bought a Yamaha GC35M.
I think it's a rare model.
It has a nice balanced sound. :casque: :casque: I really enjoy playing it.
I also have an alhambra iberia spruce top which also has a nice tone. But Yamaha GC35M is louder and basses are more sustaining.

Thank you very much HNLim for your advise.
Here's the same GC-35M from the 1990's. Original price is around ¥150,000 :D

any idea about the Signature of the luthier?
...
Well, it says Ezaki so I guess it's Hideyuki Ezaki, one of Yamaha's two most famous or desireable luthiers.
You can google the name for more info or maybe some of the guys here will chip in and give you more details.
Getting better bit by bit, day by day.
