Up for sale is my Yamaha Flamenco Standard (STD) Custom Guitar in excellent condition.  This is an extremely rare guitar that one can only normally buy as a custom order from Yamaha's custom shop in Japan.  It is especially rare to find it here in the US (mine is the only one that I've heard of so far).  It is completely handmade and the label bears the signature of the maker.  All the woods are solid and finished with a wonderful French polish.  The guitar is light as a feather and truly flamenco in every sense of the word.  It's got rasp and growl.  The notes are very even and ring moderately load.  And, the action is very low with plenty of room on the saddle to go down even further.  There is only one cosmetic issue which detracts from an otherwise awesome guitar.  When the guitar was originally imported directly from Yamaha Japan it suffered some finish crazing all around due to the cold temperature while in flight.  I'm 99% sure that this issue is purely cosmetic.  None of the finish crazing appears to affect any of the wood itself.  And, I've captured the worst of it in some of the included photos.  Please understand that I purposefully composed my shots to exaggerate the finish crazing (e.g., they don't look nearly as bad in person and from a normal distance).  In truth, I've read that finish checking/crazing can improve the sound of an acoustic instrument.  And trust me when I say that this guitar sounds great.  I've even used it as a classical guitar on occasion.  This model guitar occasionally shows up on the used market in Japan with a typically asking price of over $3000.  I'm starting this auction at $1795 with no reserve.
