Derek Trucks’ Yamaha Acoustic

According to a Vintage Guitar interview from 2013, this was Derek’s first decent guitar, which he moved on from his Jay G Adjustomatic, his first ever guitar.

My parents got me a pawnshop Yamaha acoustic, which was definitely better than that garage-sale Jay.

Unfortunately, Derek did not specify the exact model of the guitar, so we’ll have it listed as a Yamaha acoustic.
