I bought a new Yamaha Guitar and When you look inside the guitar hole it looks like the model number is written by hand.

I called Yamaha, and the voice at the other end told me it was a grey-market guitar, never sold in the US, thus they would not have that info. thanks, vince : Hi, : I'm trying to find out what the build date is for a Yamaha FG-140 I recently bought, # T0085566. The TOxxxx numberyou quote is I assume located inside on the heel block. A friend bought one 2/3 years later but his was notably inferior. The only number on this guitar that I can find has 7 digits without any letters...1573975..

I just wanted to clarify one point: since you say you can't find the model number written anywhere, maybe it would be helpful if we could try to reach a consensus on what it says.

Japanese-built Takamine Pro Series guitars can be reliably dated from the eight-digit serial numbers typically found at the neck block inside the instruments.

The first two digits designate the year of manufacture, followed by two digits denoting the month.

IF I HAVE USED ONE OF YOUR PICTURES AND YOU’D LIKE ME TO REMOVE IT, PLEASE CONTACT ME AND I WILL TAKE IT DOWN IMMEDIATELY.

I am trying to find some info on a yamaha FG335 I recently purchased from a friend who was in a pinch, I do not know allot about accustic guitars and would appreciate any info on determining the year and approximate value of this guitar.
