Yamaha CG101 (K?) And serial number questions.

Unread post by treankare » Mon Jun 11, 2018 3:26 pm

Hello!

Today i got my hands on a Yamaha CG101 (K) and i was wondering if anybody knows what the K mean. And if someone is good at decoding serial numbers, 00503707. What is the age?

Thank you!

Hejsan, welcome to the forum and the string section. :D

I haven't been able to decode the serial number given by you, yet. :oops:

The "K" could very well be that your guitar was made in Korea,
but the country of manufacture should be readable on the label inside your guitar.

Best Regards

Tjenare, Buzzard. On the guitar label i read: "Made by Kaohsiung Yamaha Co, LTD" From what i find Kaohsiung is located in Taiwan.
I guess "System # A9" on https://www.yamaha.com/yamahaguitars/Ac ... ystems.pdf seems to be correct but how should i read the first two numbers, as they are 00? 1980, 1990 or 2000? Could be either from what i can see.

It's always difficult with Yamaha guitars because as you discovered they reuse the serial numbers every 10 years. It is also not helped by the fact that the CG101 is still a current model and has been in production for many years. Can you post some pictures of the guitar including the label?
