Before answering that question we need some more info. Is it an Y-80 (The round black label) and not YC-80? A picture would help.es335 wrote: ↑Tue Oct 24, 2017 12:09 pmHi Jon and all the other Japanese classical guitar experts. I would very much appreciate if someone could provide some advance information about a Yairi Y-80 which came into my focus? Just to estimate if more serious considerations are requested.
Thanks in advance!
If its indeed an Y-model it was probably made in the 60s or early 70s and was a higher-end model.
However In Japan the common classical models in the 70s and 80s were YC-30, YC-40, YC-50 YC-80, YC-90, YC-100 and YC-150 - Higher = Better. So an YC-80 is in the middle so to speak.
