Awesome stuff lillo, I'm about to make a thread specifically for people's six string builds.

Parlor guitar I made for Harri.

The new thread specifically for your own six-string builds is now up; check it out. :)

Nice stuff Lillo, but remember, this is the thread for gear you've bought, not made, the other thread is up for your own build's. 

My Tokai and Yamaha - Japanese copies of classics but affordable and better than I am!

Great stuff, that Yamaha is beautiful, what's the company description when it comes to that sunburst on it? Looks great.

Thanks Daniel - I bought the Yanaha second hand about 40 years ago.

It's an FG295S copy of the Gibson Hummingbird I guess. It has a narrow neck and my daughter is now the proud owner as my fingers put on weight.

Unusually it was actually made in Japan back then - probably make them in China now like the Tokai was.

Strangely enough, over time Japan has received more and more notoriety as a good builder, it's places like Indonesia that put out the crap these days.  

They made hand made many acuostics and then started mostly machine builds , the ones made by hand in Japan were great sounding guitars

I think Takamine still builds by hand. 

I also have a Westone Concord II with a single piece maple neck - from Japan back in the early 80s. I believe Westone produced bodies and necks for 'third parties' before deciding they could do well themselves at a third of the price of 'named brands'. The photo is from the internet but the same as mine.
