I have a piano teacher who purchased a Yamaha C2(1979) at an auction several years back, that was missing both cheek blocks. I've checked with Yamaha, and with the age, that's a nogo with them. I have the capability to make them(full woodshop), but am looking for some measurements. Obviously, I can measure the hole(s), open spaces, etc. but if someone happens to have a similar vintage C2 and can supply some measurements that would make life a lot easier.

Thanks

I am based in the UK, so I don't know how things work in the States, but I would check local Yamaha dealers to see if you can borrow the cheek blocks from a current model and then check if they would fit (with a little modification, if necessary).
