1981 Yamaha FG-351SB
This striking Yamaha FG-351SB hails from 1981. It's loosely copied after a Gibson Hummingbird, with large fingerboard inlays, stenciled pickguard and a beautiful cherry sunburst finish. In excellent condition, it does have a few minor dings and dents, but far fewer than I would expect from a 38 year old instrument.
The tone is rich and full, though heavy on the mids and a little light on the bass. The playability is outstanding, and it nearly plays itself, but doesn't rattle when I bang on it.
Original Yamaha hardshell case included.
