    This one is a 2018 model in very good condition. The varnish finish is nice but a little sticky in humid weather. The case is nice, I bet it is made by Yamaha. Fit and finish is on par with US made stuff, though it feels a tad heavier than an American counterpart. The sound is good too... Overall I am really pleased and happy enough with it that I will be selling my Martin (that says a lot) Here are some pics of the actual guitar provided by the seller:

    Just for grins I am going to try the liquid metal bridge pins from my Martin if they fit...

    I have some brass pins on a few of my acoustics. They can be an acquired taste, but always worth a try. Let us know how they work out for you.

    Well, I should not have done that... It improved the sound of both guitars, IMHO. Now, I can't sell the Martin... Oh well, I knew better and the Martin looks better with ebony to boot... :)

    The Eastmans must be the high-end Chinese made Yamahas, the hard case tells the story, it's the same as the hard case for the high-end MIJ Yamahas... No matter, I like it...

    Something I noticed when swapping bridge pins, the pin holes are slotted. Maybe this one has been modded, IDK...
