Dating your yamaha guitar black women dating agency in the uk

View Pro Series Guitars Japanese-made Takamine models distributed in Japan have their own serial-numbering scheme that can be used to reliably date them.

In mid/late 2012, US distributed Japanese-built guitars switched to the year designation that guitars distributed in Japan use.

See below for the formula used to tell the year of manufacture.

Custom Shop, Made in Japan, 1966-1985: 001-1042 in sequence Custom Shop, Made in Japan, 1986-1990: Letter-####, like so: J7012.

The letter at the beginning represents the month, so J would be March (see chart above). Custom Shop, Made in Japan, 1991-1996: Letter-letter-###-letter, like so: HP213J. 111 is the unit number; and the final letter is an internal code. During 1999, they starting the count each month at 200 rather than 500. Tenryu/Wada Factory, Made in Japan, 1946-1968: #####.

The number following the letter is the year, in this case . Using the charts, we see that H=1991 and P=September. Custom Shop, Made in Japan, 2004-: Letter-letter-letter-###-letter, like so: QLY111C. Yamaha Music Craft, Made in Japan, 1997-1999: Letter-letter-###-letter, like so: ON521J. (See previous entry for Yamaha Music Craft for more on the numbering.) Yamaha Music Craft, Made in Japan, 2001-: Letter-letter-letter-###-letter, like so: QIL123A.
