Yamaha / LL-35 Brazilian Rosewood / 1990 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Only produced between 1984 - 1996, the LL-35 is a Yamaha Custom Shop guitar, and top of the range of the LL series. According to the guitar’s paperwork, the back and sides are Jacaranda, and there are differing opinions as to whether this is exactly the same as Brazilian Rosewood, or a similar variant. What I can say is that it has the same exotic figuring, and an instantly recognisable tone that, whenever I hear it, I think of as Brazilian. With a White Spruce top, Ebony fingerboard and bridge, and scalloped bracing, the guitar has a dynamic tone, very resonant, with long sustain, the bass is full, the mids are detailed, and the trebles are strong. It can handle any playing style from heavy strumming through to delicate fingerstyle. The guitar is in very good condition, with one repaired top crack, and has upgraded Gotoh 510 tuners. It has an LR Baggs active pickup system fitted, and comes in it’s original deluxe 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.
