Used And Vintage Acoustic Guitars

We just got in a really cool vintage acoustic guitar handmade from Japan - it's this great Jagard JD-80, something that you rarely see.  This is a beautiful dreadnaught with a spruce top and stunning 3-piece rosewood back and sides.  It's essentially Jagard's take on a D-35, and done very, very well.

Jagard acoustic guitars and mandolins were made in the 1970s in Japan by Terada Musical Instruments, a well-known and well-respected guitar maker.  While the company made many models, both acoustic and electric, it's these Martin-esque guitars that have become highly sought after.  Excellent build standards, premium materials, and attention to detail resulted in some of the best Japanese-made acoustics at a very affordable price.

The solid spruce top features a vintage tint and is adorned with abalone inlays. The headstock and rosette also have abalone inlays. You get high-quality Grover tuners to stay in tune.  The rosewood back is absolutely stunning - be sure to check out the photos.  The wood grain is quite impressive.  The neck is really comfortable to play and the frets have plenty of life in them.  Of course, it's all about how the guitar sounds, and this one sounds amazing.  The tone is full, rich and balanced across the tonal spectrum.  Whether strumming or finger picking, this guitar really can handle it.  A few of us have started to fall in love with it.  

This guitar is in very good condition (see photos to view everything) and comes with a case.  We're not sure if it's the original case or not, but it's a good one, and quite interestingly painted.  The guitar has been vetted and setup to play perfectly by the techs in our shop.  Considering its age, quality of build and construction, this guitar will become a keeper for whomever gets it - and that could be you!
