Re: Spruce or Maple for acoustic blues..

Its probably the rosewood fretboard. Yep, must be the rosewood fretboard, in combination wit exporting from inside the EU to outside the EU. The seller needs an export license, and the buyer an import license. So best thing to do is join the EU. There's room for a new member after march 29 :D. Anot...

Re: New,red and sparkly

It's an MGS all original from Yamaha. Check out Bills page of rare and unusual and you'll see them. I already saw the resemblance with Bill's guitar but also noticed the missing headstock decal. Nice, how does it compare to a standard tele? Don't know as I have never played a "real" tele. Ah, we go...

Re: Spruce or Maple for acoustic blues..

Never knew there were maple top APX guitars. Looked them up and boy they look great.

Noticed somethng else I didn't know too. These APX600's have a shorter scale length than most oher APX's: 634 mm on a APX600 vs 650 mm on a APX 500, 700, 1000 etc. Just enough difference for a different feel.

But I think guitarplayers like that are as rare as that fantastic looking guitar. Great Catch.

What type are we lookin at. Customized factory guitar? One off? Overspray?

Re: Yamaha Revstar vs Reverend Sensei Debate

"RS620 Inspired by the 1974 Yamaha ‘Super Flighter’ guitar, the RS620 takes its design cues from a cult classic, combining them in perfect balance with the individual styling and custom-built vibe of the Revstar concept. Its roots definitely run deep, but this isn’t your dad’s guitar." You're right...

Re: HNGD.... but not a Yamaha... sorry

The Les Paul Junior I bought about a month and that triggered this topic has left the building again. Sold her last week. Again some proof that the best way to test a guitar is buying one second hand for a price that you will be able to sell it for again if you want to get rid of it. Of the 100+ gui...

Re: Yamaha c/g 60a? Info about this model?

I agree with Saul. A G60A, production years 1969 and 1970 (the C60A had different sound hole inlays).

Look at this page from a 1970 US catalog showing a G60A, with a price tag of 59,95 usd.:

Re: Vintage Sound Amps V15

The Concert indeed has the Power & Standby switches on the front plate... Yep, you got me there :think: . But that Concert is an amp from the 'Rivera era'. And they had to wait till master Leo sold Fender 8) . But you're right. Some older smaller amps like the first BF and SF Champs had their power...

Re: Vintage Sound Amps V15

but I can't for the life of me understand why they placed the On/Off and Standby switches on the backside of that amp! Miks, must be a keyboardplayer thing. I grew up with Blackface and Silverface Fender amps and don't know better. Seems the only logical place for a switch you don't use only twice ...

Vintage Sound Amps V15

Did some cleaning up by selling some non vintage guitars. Thought it was a good idea to spend the money on something that always makes me very happy: a new amp :) . I normally don't buy brand new stuff and for some time I doubted between buying a real vintage Fender Princeton Reverb or a modern clon...

Re: Happy new project day

Starts looking great ((i)) . And I even saw a word I didn't know before: smurm. Googled but found nothing :( . But I think I understand what you mean.

BTW: sometimes smurm contributes to the mojo of vintage instruments :lol:

Re: Yamaha Amps

The speaker definitly was changed...-but sounds nice. A printmark shows the following: GH1 X T2320, no labels, nothing else. Looks like a Celestion code to me. The code doesn't appear on the known Celestion lists. Somewhere on the web it's mentioned as the intermediate speaker between the late 70s ...
