Great history and beautiful Yamaha!

What material is used to cover what I assume is an old barn door? Cardboard or paper?

Yes! Itís from when my dad last played it regularly

He ended up with a tippin crescendo really liked it and got one made to his specs which eventually resulted in him not playing this one too much

I consider that set list priceless and Iím leaving it there as long as it lasts

Ohhhh I see what you meant! Yeah the guitar is so reflective, those pics of the back were the least reflective I was able to take

Yes itís a set list, my dad played this guitar a ton then eventually got a tippin crescendo then another one built to his specs and those two eventually retired the Yamaha. He plays those two crescendos and a martin 000-28EC these days

lol, a setlist. I initially thought it was a barn door hole in the guitar, at an odd place.

That aside, beautiful, well aged guitar with what must be an amazing tone.
