The model is G55A. This is made in Japan (not Taiwan) and is 1968/1969 manufacture. I believe a couple woods in this model aren't even legal for import anymore? Back in the day this was considered a student model but I think it sounds better than many professionals today. Don't make em like they used to! Includes a Gator semi-rigid case and a spare bone saddle (doesn't need one but a handy spare). $200 firm / Lake Norman area.
