Yamaha (founded in 1887 in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka), the world's largest manufacturer of musical instruments and boasting an overwhelming market share in the musical instrument manufacturing and music business alone, was also an early proponent of the classical guitar. In 1966, Yamaha established the Guitar Research Department and began research and development of handcrafted guitars in order to stimulate the classical guitar market in Japan. The following year, Yamaha invited Eduardo Ferrer, who at the time was a mentor in Granada, Spain, to provide guidance on traditional Spanish construction methods, and in 1973, invited Manuel Hernandez (Hernandez y Aguado) to provide technical guidance. The result of these intensive training programs was the Grand Concert (GC) series, which continues to this day as a high-spec series of Yamaha classical models.

YAMAHA 1981 GC-7 is now in stock. The label is signed by Hideyuki Ezaki. It features the solid construction and rigid sound typical of this brand. Although 40 years have passed since its production, there are only a few scratches, rubbing marks from clothes, and slight discoloration on some parts of the paint, and the overall condition is very good. The GC series frequently changed its lineup and specifications, and this model is now discontinued.
