YAMAHA FG-110 (Red label)

Unread post by MrFabs » Wed Feb 21, 2018 8:46 pm

Hi all,

I am new here, so I've got a question. I've got a Yamaha FG 110, red label, serial T0050938, and has "YAMAHA" on the headstock rather than the "Star" monogram. So I need to know where and when it was made please? Can somebody help me? Thanks a lot!

Have a look on the pictures:

Hi and welcome to the forum:)

You said that "I've got a Yamaha FG 110, red label, serial T0050938, and has "YAMAHA" on the headstock" but then you linked to an active Ebay auction. Is that your guitar for sale? If not I would suggest you post pictures of your guitar...attach them to your post.

Commercial links with products for sale are generally restricted to members who have 50 posts or more. This is to prevent people using the forum only as a free way to promote their sites and sell their goods.

That rule is of course open to moderator discretion so if in doubt always ask one of the moderators, buzzard, parametric, Derek, Miks, Jima or me and we will confirm the situation.

Welcome to the forum and the string section. :D

Auction has ended ..... are you the buyer or seller ?

info from the auction:
CURRENTLY SOLD OUT
1971 Yamaha Fg-110 Acoustic Guitar (all Original)
MPN T0050938

Somebody must have an idea of when it was built. :wink:

If you are the new owner,
please take some closeup pictures so we can see if there is more important info on the label or any other writing/print on the guitar.

Regards

My guess from what I have been able to find out is that this Red Label FG-110 was made in Taiwan and is late 1971/early 1972.

All the Taiwan made Red Label guitars had just the 'Yamaha' name on the headstock.

Hope that helps?
