K Yairi / YW600 / 1976 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
K Yairi was a master luthier, and believed that the most laborious methods of wood selection, preparation and manual carving were central to creating the ideal sound. With a small team of highly trained luthiers, his guitars have built up a strong following. This is a fine example of a Martin D41 copy made in the legendary Kani Gifu factory in Japan. The guitar features a Spruce top with Asian Coral Rosewood back and sides. The fingerboard and bridge are Ebony, and there’s MOP binding on the top and back, plus beautiful MOP fingerboard inlays. The guitar has a big sound, very resonant with excellent sustain. There’s great definition and clarity for fingerpicking, and works well for strumming. It’s in very good condition for it’s age, with no cracks or repairs, just the usual age related nicks and dings. The neck feels great and the action is very comfortable. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
