For a 1992, it's unbelievable how clean this 12 string is. This handmade Japanese Dreadnaught has wonderful chime and dimensionality to its sound. The DY80 is Kazuo Yairi’s most sought after models from the 1990s and is characterised by a combination of high quality materials and craftsmanship. Upon its arrival, it's been professionally set-up with low, playable action and is wayyy more playable than most 12 strings. This is mastery of design and build!
