Summary: Along with the FG-140 and FG-180, the Yamaha FG-300 was one of the original "red label" six-string acoustics built in Japan starting in 1969. This 1981 Yamaha FG-300 was built in Japan at the Nippon Gakki factory. It has a Spruce top with Rosewood back and sides. The “V” shaped neck is very comfortable and easy on the hand. This acoustic guitar comes with the original Yamaha hard-shell case.

Pickups/Hardware: Yamaha closed gear tuning keys, flower pattern pickguard, adjustable bridge, Yamaha truss rod cover, white bridge pins, Rosewood bridge w/ pearl inlays, binding on the top/back of the body.

Cosmetics: This guitar has wear that is consistent with an instrument of this age. It has various nicks, dings, and scuffs throughout. The pickguard has started to crack but still fully intact. The frets are low but still in good shape. Overall, this guitar plays very well and sounds fantastic.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable.
