Default Yamaha LL-45

Thought Iíd share some pics of my dads Yamaha LL-45 since Iíve talked about it in a few threads

My dad bought it in 88 around when I was born and it was his only guitar for about twenty years

He let me start borrowing it towards the end of last March and itís just been amazing


I want to get some better pictures eventually

Itís something else, just amazing

I changed the strings and hit one chord, had to call my dad to ask him if he knew how good it sounded

He played a ton and still does, the guitar is as recognizable to me as he is

Almost dropped it flat on its face the first day too

I did what I can so far

The back is especially hard to photograph cause itís so reflective

These were better than the first set I took but I want better ones still

Thanks Eric for sharing your story and pictures of your Dadís LL45! Gorgeous looking guitar!

Itís a pity that the sound is not working in the video. Would love to hear how it sounded.

Wow, that guitar looks to be in incredible shape. Are those pictures recent?

I hope 30 years from now my son is expressing the same level of interest in my 56 ;-0

Heís 8 right now, so for some reason heís not beating my door down yet to play it. Lego guitars are more his thing
