FG-460s-12a Photos and question.

Unread post by Oldtickers » Sun Dec 01, 2019 3:40 pm

Greetings all,

Here is my latest Yamaha. A one owner 1991? FG-460s-12a.
I have some "higher grade" 12 string guitars that do not sound as good as this one.
It is difficult to get a good photo (last picture) with these shiny guitars..lol
The "imperfection illusions" on it are from windows and such.

What years were these made? I have seen different years posted on the internet.

Thanks!, Ed

Ed,

Most sources agree about the start of production: 1989.

On stopping you can find 1993 (the old Japanse guitarchive) or 1995 (the US guitarchive).

I go for 1993. I have a 1993 UK pricelist where the guitar is mentioned. In a 1994 pricelist she is gone.

Thank you very much.

That matches the 1991 receipt that came with it.
