And dating the early models with 6 & 7 digit serial numbers.

In the Repair section I cover how to do a neck rest on a vintage Yamaha FG, and other topics.

Working out the date of your Takamine guitar is easy for most models, and with the aid of a serial number you can usually pinpoint the age of your guitar down to the precise day on which it was made. This will be inside the sound hole, on the interior of the body.

In my current Projects, I’m trying to find the time to finish a couple of neck resets, then start working on the YAMAGULL.

I’ve created this site because I love Yamaha Pacifica guitars–especially the older Pacificas from the mid 90s.

For example, serial number 07100091 indicates a guitar built in 2007 (07), in October of that year (10), and that it was the 91st guitar made that month (0091).

Similarly, serial number 09050112 indicates the 112th guitar made during May 2009.

IF I HAVE USED ONE OF YOUR PICTURES AND YOU’D LIKE ME TO REMOVE IT, PLEASE CONTACT ME AND I WILL TAKE IT DOWN IMMEDIATELY.

Japanese-built Takamine Pro Series guitars can be reliably dated from the eight-digit serial numbers typically found at the neck block inside the instruments.A guitar with a serial number starting “050108” would have been made on the eighth of January 2005.Note the final two digits for the maximum amount of precision.NOTE: IS PURELY A FAN SITE AND HAS NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSE WHATSOEVER.I HAVE USED MANY FANTASTIC PICTURES THAT I HAVE SIMPLY FOUND ON THE WEB.So if you have a Yamaha Pacifica guitar or want to know a little bit more about them, I hope you find this site fun, useful or inspiring.
