My FG300 has a red label, and a serial number, but doesn't say Nippon Gakki anywhere on it. So what other labels where there in this guitar, that determine it's value or year it was built?

thanks for your help. :-)

Yamaha FG-300 Orange Label - Nippon Gakki Japan

I have been looking around and I see a lot of people saying only the red labeled Yamaha guitars are the ones made in the nippon gakki Factory. I have a gold labeled FG 300 and It does say built In Nippon-Gakki Japa. I was wondering if anyone knows what the difference is between a red and orange labeled FG 300 provided both were made in the N-G Factory? I cant find a serial number on it, my only guess would be that it would tell you something about the age of it.

Re: Yamaha FG300 Acoustic Guitar

I have a Yamaha FG-300, flowered pickguard, Red Label w/Nippon Gakki within; 'Made in Japan' on the back of the head stock, adjustable bridge, etc., but NO SERIAL NUMBER inside the sound hole.

Could it be 'under' the label? Any thoughts? Person I bought it from said he's owned it since 1976 and bought it used.

Thanks for your help.

It's been over a year. If you are still looking for an FG300, I have one. All original, excellent condition, pick guard sits flat & never re-glued. Serial #40404 Let me know.

Re: Yamaha FG300 Acoustic Guitar

It seems the winning combination is the red label, Nippon Gakki, and "Made In Japan" on the back of the headstock. Those appear to be the famous ones, beat out only by the Japan ones made before that I believe that were not exports out of that country. After these initial exports, they were assembled other ways, including in Taiwan and production standards were hard to monitor.

The red label Japan models gave American guitar makers a real run for their money. These were still plywood guitars (veneers) but are sought after today for a reason.

Re: Yamaha FG300 Acoustic Guitar

I have a Yamaha FG300 Red Label Humingbird SN#1222788. It has "Made in Japan" on the back of the head stock. It is in very good condition with a black case with red lining. I believe the case is original. The pick guard is coming up, but otherwise is in very good condition. I have been thinking of selling it, but want it to go to someone who appreciates the guitar. Any takers?

Re: Yamaha FG300 Acoustic Guitar

thanks everyone for your input on this. I bought the guitar in 1970 or 1971, after my other guitar was damaged in a house fire.
