Scratch that last post ... spoke to my mom ... she bought it in 1985 ... I used her guitar during my high school days :)

I have a Yamaha FG-480S - at least that is what the label inside says. It has bird inlays. My memory is not that great but I know I graduated high school in 1982 :) and know that I used this guitar to start a high school garage band. My parents brought it back from Hong Kong - at least a year or two before I graduated. Maybe Yamaha made it for Asia distribution before they made it available to the US?

The yamaha models FG-460s, FG-470s and FG-480s were made from 1985-1989...thus yours cannot be a 1981 model. The earlier versions (first 18 months or so) are distinguishable by the dove inlay on the headstock and the bird inlay on the fingerboard. Later models have the leaf inlay on the headstock and \'snowflake\' fingerboard inlays. I have one of these and it is a guitar which I would compare to a high end Martin. They are excellent guitars and extremely hard to find.
