Yamaha GC10 Hideyuki Ezaki Preowned 1981

1 only in stock
This Yamaha guitar made in Japan in 1981 is yet another great guitar introduced by Yamaha Corporation. It was made and signed by one of the greatest Yamaha luthiers, Hideyuki Ezaki.

Hideyuki joined Yamaha’s classical guitar workshop in 1967 and in 1968 left for Spain where he spent 3 years studying guitar making under Eduardo Ferrer in Granada and Manuel Hernadez in Madrid. Upon his return in 1971 he joined Yamaha's custom shop and worked alongside Toshiro Kato (Head luthier at Yamaha's Custom Shop) and Hiroshi Harada. Initially, Hideyuki Ezaki was making some midrange Yamaha models in relatively small numbers. He was also a member of Yamaha's design group, working on various innovations leading to improved tonal properties of Yamaha guitars. Since 1975 through 1982 Hideyuki was making Yamaha's top Cedar top model GC30B. After Toshihiro Kato's departure in late 1980s, Hideyuki became the leader of Yamaha's Custom Shop and was running it until his retirement in 2007. 

This guitar is a great example of Hideyuki Ezaki’s superb craftsmanship. Its sound will amaze every player. It has deep resonating somewhat metallic basses, clear but colorful trebles, all notes well separated, balanced and magnified by very impressive sustain. It's been well cared-for, but the finish has some clouding from age, and there are a few small scratches and dings as you'd expect with a guitar of it's age. Includes hardshell case.
