I have been thinking of selling it, but want it to go to someone who appreciates the guitar. : : It seems the winning combination is the red label, Nippon Gakki, and "Made In Japan" on the back of the headstock. The the sound hole says 40417 does anyione know what this means?Those appear to be the famous ones, beat out only by the Japan ones made before that I believe that were not exports out of that country. Related Gear: See where Yamaha came in our Silent Guitar Roundup Mine is a Nippon Gakki, with the Yellow Lable..Many different models of Silvertone guitars exist, but the vast majority of them can be dated via the serial number.In general, the older the guitar is, the more it is worth. Look behind the headstock and on the base of the neck.So what other labels where there in this guitar, that determine it's value or year it was built? :-) hi i have a couple of fg 300s one i bought in oknawa 1974 one from a pawn shop for less than 100 dollars. i tell my friends i think the value of the yamaha made in japan (pre 1975) are worth the number in the sound hole. the fg 300 plus numbers that were made in korea or tiawan are not the quality of the old ones (i don't think). Saludos I also have an FG300 with a yellow label that states "Nippom Gakki Co. My sound hole number is 40423 so we're nearly neighbours!i tell my friends i think the value of the yamaha made in japan (pre 1975) are worth the number in the sound hole. the fg 300 plus numbers that were made in korea or tiawan are not the quality of the old ones (i don't think). The only info I've gathered was off a guy from the US who claimed to be a bit of an expert on these guitars.

: : My FG300 has a red label, and a serial number, but doesn't say Nippon Gakki anywhere on it. So what other labels where there in this guitar, that determine it's value or year it was built? :-) : : hi i have a couple of fg 300s one i bought in oknawa 1974 one from a pawn shop for less than 100 dollars. Es probable que sea aproximadamente de mediados de los 70's Muchas gracias.
