Vintage 70s MONTAYA Classical Acoustic Guitar C88 MIK Hyosung Corp Korea Project

  • Price:$74.50


A Vintage, circa 1970's(?)
 
MONTAYA CLASSICAL GUITAR
Model C88




A nice circa 1970's (I think) Montaya Classical Guitar, Model C88.

I'm calling this a project but it's more in line with needing a minor set-up and a new set of strings than serious work of any kind. It would benefit from some elbow grease to wipe down the various marks and soften the nicks that you find on guitars of this vintage, but there's no cracking or splitting, etc. Everything looks real solid. No loose braces or internal problems from what I could tell feeling around inside.

Neck looks pretty straight with little fret or fret board wear (except for a small chip on the edge of the 3rd fret bass side). Tuning machines are in good working order with a chip or two missing from the ornate tuning buttons. The action seems a wee-bit high but there is lots of height to the saddle so that could be adjusted if you so desire.

Label states: "Montaya/ Model No. C88/ Hyosung Corporation/ Made in Korea". Montaya's were originally crafted in Japan and I believe this was one of the early examples of when they moved their operation to Korea in the late '60's/ early '70's. There is also a small sticker on the back of the headstock that reads "Made in Korea".

Measures 39-1/2 inches in length with about 14-1/2 inch lower bout and 11 inch upper bout. Nice, mid-size guitar with spruce top and maple sides and back. Rosewood(?) fret board and bridge.
