Salaam! Welcome to the forum. Where are you in Iran? My step-father is from Abadan (gholoo).
As long as the price is right, I'd go for it. Those older Yamahas can be fantastic. I've got an FG-110 from the early 1970s that really sounds wonderful.
Your English is fine, by the way.

Here in the states the price is way too high. Not sure of supply and demand and value of cash......
Take a straight edge, lay it on the frets. If you see a dip or a bow in the neck it might be adjustable (truss rod) Then look where the end of the straight edge hits the Bridge. On a Yamaha 1/8" to 1/4" below the top of the bridge (not the saddle) is acceptable. If the straight edge lands over/high of the bridge or the straight edge heads to the body then the neck is shot. A neck reset is likely more money than the asking price.

I have a general quastion about the strings:
When I tried to to hold strings on fingerboard, after about 2 minutes my Fingertips became painfull...
I had played with my friend's classical guitar before, but that was no such a pain!
I know the string are of metal, but seriously how you guys play with it without problem?

I only know a little bit of Farsi, and I can't read it, but I think I can say "Merci! Khoobam. Khoobii?" After that, I only know when I'm being offered chai, ab-jo, and fesenjoon. Bokor!
I'd guess that $260 isn't firm. The seller probably set the price a little high so that it can be haggled down.
Tehran! You know that Los Angeles is called Tehrangeles? :lol: I've also known some folks from Shiraz and Isfahan (Esfahan Nesf-e Jahan).

You just get used to it. The pain will go away after you've played awhile and developed callouses -- your fingertips will get tougher the more you play. That's the remedy ... keep playing. :lol:

I really enjoyed talking with you dear Stackabones. Thank you so much

I think I got the first line, but everything after Kheylii (very, right?) is a mystery
Beautiful country, wonderful people, rich history
I still haven't figured out how to make the rice and get a good tadig
Do you know about Shiraz (aka Syrah) wine? There's a legend about someone getting the grapes from Shiraz and taking them back to Hermitage in France to grow them
Usually get to eat kabob (sultani) and I'm probably the only Texan who drinks doogh. There are other dishes that I can't remember the name till someone says it or puts it in front of me
We have another Iranian forumite named d0nut
When will you have a chance to look at the guitar again?
You mentioned you found a teacher?
