Thanks for the info! I can't wait to learn to play this beauty. Long and McQuade had put new strings on it before it was given to me.Welcome Tony, and thank You for your service! I have no personal info, but I did find some info online.
My quick response would be: golden era mij (made in Japan) guitar, robust tip of the hat to Martin dreadnoughts. Well worth playing, looking after, and possibly a real gem. Quality like Tama/Aria (good thing) from the good old days. I've only seen one lately, at $500, but too far for me to travel. Let us know what you think of it once you've played it for a spell. Thanks for taking the time to post pic's.

Yours looks great -- with (I think) spruce top & rosewood back and sides. If it's sat fallow for a time. it can take a bit to open up. Time and (maybe?) new strings. Youtube has some great lessons, and popular songs 'with tab'. Congrat's & enjoy!
Hi. I was given a Hayashi acoustic guitar through "Guitars for Vets" and I'd love some information on it. I'm told it's about 30 years old, and the serial number inside the sound hole is 27126M36. There is mother of pearl inlayed in the rosette, and around the edge of the top. The only writing in the inside is "made by Hayashi". Thanks!
