Vintage YAMAHA Guitar Quality

Vintage Yamaha's were of consistently high quality - how did they do it? Pick up one guitar, then another and each is built to the same high standard.

I came across an interesting section of an early 1980's Yamaha catalog I acquired with a batch of vintage material. The first several pages of this catalog were dedicated to showing how Yamaha consistently built such high quality instruments, from start to finish.

It makes for an interesting read, especially on the how the wood is seasoned for guitar necks. As you look at it, you can sense a culture of quality and pride of craftsmanship instilled across the business. Enjoy, and please let me know if you come across one of those cool blue Yamaha uniforms, or even just a hat!
