It is a full sized dreadnought guitar, with a 1 3/4 nut, and a 20 fret neck. As can be seen in the pictures, and is not uncommon is Yamahas produced during this period, there is some fogging/clouding in the finish on the back and sides. I have had this inspected by a luthier who advised that it does not/will not affect the playability or long term stability of the guitar, and is purely aesthetic. I have also included photographs of two marks in the finish, also on the sides. The neck is straight and true, the frets have minimal wear, and the guitar plays beautifully.
It is fitted with a new set of D'Addario Phosphor Bronze Normal tension strings, and comes with its Yamaha hard case.
