1970s Yamaki Hummingbird Acoustic Dreadnought – Model H250A
In Good condition, gorgeous sound, classic burst and nice appointments.
The exterior condition is generally good, although there are strum scratches and dents, appropriate for the age and cosmetic blemish. See pics.
The back of the neck and fingerboard are good. The inlay also has a good color and luster. One tuning peg is busted, but can be fixed with glue or replace with one tuner.
Model: H250 A
Nut & Saddle: Ox bone
Tuners: Gotoh YAMAKI

Price reflects cosmetics issues and tuner peg.
The neck is straight. The acoustic is not perfectly straight, and it is set up as bent slightly for playing in low position or open. The rod turns both ways and there is room left for adjustments. You can adjust according to individual preferences, based on strokes, picking strength, and playing style.
The saddle height is sufficient, about 2.8 mm on the 1st string side and 3.6 mm on the 6th string side. Didnt feel the need to lower the saddle to set proper string height. There is minimal fret wear and no dents on the fret board. There are no side burrs. Neck is smooth
The tuners works fine, outside of the one tuner needing fix.
The fret inlays have aged beautifully into a jewel like tortoise, and look great.
There is no bulge under the bridge or top drop around the hole.
