Guitarras Clásicas de Concierto, José Yacopi, Guitarras Criollas, Guitarras Españolas En el segundo, entre 1950-1980, influyen las tendencias mundiales de la época que exigen una mayor potencia sonora; como consecuencia aumenta las proporciones de la plantilla y el grosor de los materiales y estructura interna. En su ultimo período regresa paulatinamente a los parámetros empleados en el primero y desde 1989 sus conceptos de diseño se asimilan casi en su totalidad a los de Torres. Pero en todos estos períodos está presente el rasgo sonoro que distingue su manufactura: calidez tímbrica y equilibrio de las voces. Yacopi produce anualmente en su taller alrededor de trescientas guitarras. En cuanto a las características estructurales, se destaca la configuración interna de la tapa armónica creada en 1947 por Gamaliel y José, cuyo abanico de siete varetas se abre desde la base del lóbulo mayor hacia la boca.
