Ok that is one of Yamaha's "odd" serial numbers that never seem to make any sense.

There used to be a guitar archive on Yamaha's site but as they often do it has been removed without any redirection or notification of when/if it may resurface.

All I could find was a ref on the Acoustic Guitar Forum as follows:

Year(s) Sold: 1985-98
Original MSRP(US$): $1610.00
Top: Solid Spruce
Back / Sides: Solid Jacaranda
Neck: African Mahogany
Fingerboard: Ebony
Bridge: Ebony
Body Depth: 100-125mm
Color(s): Natural
Finish: Lacquer top/Polyurethane back and sides
Tuners: Gold
String Length: 650mm
Nut Width: 43mm (55mm@14th fret)
Included Accessories: HSC
Notes: Hand Crafted

So essentially if it is in good condition you have a pretty valuable a much sought after guitar on your hands (Y)

Thanks for your help! I think I bought it in 1983. Made in Taiwan
