Rare and sought after Yamaha FG180 from 1969. Red label, made in Japan.
Same as the one played by Jimmy Page himself who had one, lost it and bought another. The one he owns is pictured on his "Jimmy Page Anthology" book.
The FG180 model has been produced between 1966 and 1972 :
1966-1968 : light green label
1968-1969 : red label with Yamaha logo on headstock
1970-1972 : red label with fork logo on headstock

Spruce top with mahogany side / back and rosewood fingerboard mahogany neck.
The neck angle is shallow and the low frets are easy to play, making it perfect for strumming folk songs.
