The Yamaha was very recently inspected by a local luthier. The luthier said the neck is straight, bridge is not lifting, the action is high like in some 1960/s and 1970's classical guitars and ok, there is a little room left on treble side to lower the action. There is some wear through on the finish of some places on the fret board. The condition is fine for the age of the guitar.
