I have a YTS 61 tenor I bought in the late 70's. It has an A after the 6 digit serial #. I was unaware that this meant America. Were these horns assembled in the US? It's got "Yamaha Japan" on it as well in black ink.DougR said:There was one mentioned here a while back - I have not personally seen plated keywork on a 61 - but in the early 60s it was an occasional thing on hi-end horns.
Is it a Built-in-the-USA horn? (A at the end)
Oh, I just looked up the link above and saw your comments in that thread about Yamahas being assembled here. Nevermind!
