It would be interesting to compare the sound of 30A made in Japan and 30A Taiwan ..
I'm not sure that the GC30A was ever made outside of Japan?
Taiwan only produce the GC30. I have compared the GC30A and the Taiwan made GC30. They are world's apart.

I was wondering if they will update the model soon.
I would love a 12 holes bridge and maybe an armrest.
It's not a deal breaker as I could add those after I bought the guitar.
Also on the yamaha canadian web site if you look at the GC82C you can see that it has the old fashion headstock wich I love, is it an option?

This is the original tuning machine for the 1974 to 1978 Yamaha GC30A and the Yamaha GC20M which uses the same 39mm spacing rollers. I have yet to acquire a pre-1978 Yamaha GC30A. However I managed to buy the treble side of the original tuning machine from Japan.
So, my next best option is to reproduce this tuning machine and wait for a pre-1978 Yamaha GC30A to appear in the resale market. I got Rodgers to make a reproduction for me using the best materials that he can get for me. This is definitely the most expensive tuning machine I have own.
As long as the overall length of the tuner plate is the same, I would think it would look just fine...?
