Beautiful Yamaha AE-11

Always wanted a Yamaha Acoustic Electric model and finally managed to get one locally: an AE-11 in its original case. It needed a bit of work though… Headstock binding had a piece missing, frets were shot, the tail piece leather was missing and the non original bridge was no good. So that is all fixed now and here it is… a beautiful early seventies guitar.
