Description

Owned since new, a beautifully hand-built guitar from Yamaha's Custom Shop in Japan. Has a super-thin satin-finished neck, it's a delight to play. But it's the crystal-clear sound of this guitar that really makes it stand out. It's hard to find a guitar that plays and sounds this good for anything under £1000 - but this one does, and it can rival the depth and clarity of anything above that price-...mark. It's also the exactly the same model that Gaz Coombes (Supergrass & solo) turns to as his main acoustic. I have no claims to Gaz Coombes' heady heights, but this has been my favourite acoustic ever since I bought it. Headstock, hardware, fretboard, neck & body in very good condition for age, with the exception of a set of "wear & tear" nicks & dents on the body top. None of which affects how this guitar plays & sounds. A lot of work has gone into making this guitar look very special, and a lot of work into making it sound very special. Work which has definitely paid off. Do a blind sound test against a higher priced brand - chances are, you'll pick the LA-8. Happy to include a support pack at no extra cost, with: - 5 Picks - Clip-on Tuner - Strap - Hercules Mini Stand - Cleaning Cloth. Happy to meet personally in London to hand over. And if this isn't the one for you, check out my other guitar, amp and pedal listings on Fat Llama!
