No, it's not a Larry, and not worth a pic.

But under $100 bucks at the pawn shop. Neck looks OK, but there is a gap at the heel joint. However, if it needs work it will be a great way to try a neck reset. Something I'd like to learn to do - besides building my own guitar. Some wear, and really dead strings. But this would be a nice camp guitar if it works out.

I've wasted more money that the cost of this guitar, so I'm not concerned if it turns out bad. Since I've got a complete WW shop what's the worst that could happen?

Sounds like you found a real bargain there.  Solid top for $100.00.  I agree, a great project guitar to practise a neck reset on if required.  Hopefully the glue used on it can be softened.  I've tried on a couple of really cheap asian (not Yamaha) guitars and whatever glue they used would not soften no matter what I tried.  I'm pretty sure you'll be safe with a Yamaha though.

Good luck
