Re: paying top dollar for 1974 and earlier FGs

i have a fg 180 I think its a 66 serial #20798403 w/ a red label and the nippon gakki and a k inprinted inthe wood

Please help

Hope someone can help. I recently bought an old yamaha acoustic guitar but unfortunately the label has been torn in half and so I can not identify the model.
The model finshes in 50. From the ID number I know it was made in 65, 75, 85, 95 or 2005. It is definitely not 2005. From the wear on the neck I do not think it is 95. The stockhead is the v cut and has an eagle logo (looking like a Y) on it below the yamaha name. I can provide photos if that would help, but can anybody tell what model this guitar is?

Cheers
P

Re: Please help

Update on this is that I now think the model number is a 450 and the Guitar was made in Taiwan so that appears to date it as 1985 onwards.

I have a CJ838S from the late 70's so I'm told. Very nice quality jumbo with very rich tones. Pretty rare. Not many made from what I've learned. What is the "II" part of the 838 that you have? How much did you pay for it?

1967 FG-335 Made on Valentines day

I have a FG-335 guitar that I bought second hand from someone back in 1987. A lady that worked with me, she told me that the guitar was 20 years old. From my estimation, that would make it approximately 40 years old.
Went to the Yamaha guitar website, punched in the serial, and found out it was built on Valentines day, 1967.
Does anyone have any idea what it is worth now? I paid $75 for it back in 87.
Thanks

red label fg 180 Japan?

are the older fg 180's that have the red label but don't say "nippon gakki" made in Japan? If they are is there any difference in quality? I heard they were made in Taiwan if they don't say "nippon gakki" but I don't know if it's true.
thanks, Chad
