...and I ain`t kiddin`. Latest #1 arrived, and it came in it`s original shipping box which is a first for me, they just don`t seem to be around anymore. Apart from one scratch on the back it looks like a brand new guitar. Guess I`d call it marachino cherry red...

Wow, nice one!  An original shipping box from an early 60s guitar, now that's unusual   ohmy

Whats the nut width on that one?  The few steel tuner-post models I've seen here in US have all been 1.75" nuts, while the plastic roller models have all been classical width nut at 2".

5 digit serial and black label place it mid/late 50s. On the front of the box theres a place where the model number should be but it wasn`t there however when I was putting the box away I saw along the ende of the top they stamped a #1...so Im guessing it`s the original box. From what I gather, Yamaha reached 6 digit serials and had the white label with red dotter border by 1960.
We`re metric here...why you guys holding out?...so it`s 45 mms.

Your last two pictures have moved or deleted messages. Love those old Yammies though. I'm not in your league Sneaky but I've owned and still have a few Yamahas, that's for sure.

worth?...I keep a record of how much I`ve paid for all of the ones I own, the least I paid was about $10.00, the most was about $150.00. Hard to say how much folks would be willing to pay but to me they are great guitars, love the tone and the fat necks...I prefer the Dynamic necks to classical necks. Quite a few people here seem to use steels on theirs, I tried that but didn`t like the sound not to mention the intonation was a night mare due to the uncompensated saddle...and mine are simple cylinders...some thicker than others.
There should be a serial number stamped on the neck block, if you look through the sound hole you oughta be able to see it. How many digits is it?
