Yours Guitar Company Folk Size Acoustic 1970s
Yours folk size acoustic, made in Japan 1970s approx. Let me start by being honest: I bought this for a laugh, I thought the brand name was just perfect. The only way it could have been better was if it said 'youse' on the headstock. It's a nice basic little acoustic; nothing fancy but it has it's charms. The design is a loose copy of a Martin 000-18, so you get the comfy small size body with the classic spruce/mahogany combo. There's plenty of natural volume and attack; it's bright and lively and a great companion on the couch. Frankly, I can't say it better than what the inside label says: "Thank you for selecting me. Let me be with you as a friend and sweetheart, whenever and wherever you are. That's the wish of YOURS." Make it Yours... wait, it already is Yours? Send help.
