This Yamaha guitar, model GC-10M, ("M" stands for MATSU= Pine/Spruce) was made in 1977 and signed by Toshio Kato, one of the best luthiers that Yamaha ever had.
This GC-10M is a stunning guitar both visually and tonally. The guitar is in excellent cosmetic & functional shape and has been well taken of and has virtually no play wear. It has a few small, pinhead size dings along the edge of the top plate. There are some very minor/tiny chips and dings, scratches and swirls marks (just to be on the safe side), not visible at all at first glance. The frets are in "minty" condition but there are some very light fingering divots on the fingerboard itself. This guitar is constructed of a Honduras Mahogany neck, spruce top, a beautiful dark and dense ebony wood fingerboard and nicely grained rosewood back and sides. The guitar plays so light and easy. It is a traditional fan bracing. It's fairy loud, tonally rich and complex and smooth with a sweet, clear treble response. Great projection and resonance. This is a true professional grade instrument.
The action setup at 12 fret: 1st string - about 3.5mm, 6th string - about 4mm.
I have too many guitars, and spending 90% of the time with my '75 Sakazao Nakade No.3000, and the Yamaha GC-10M would be much happier with someone who can spent more time with her.
