I haven't got a clue. I looked on the internet, but I couldn't find the info. The 420 looks cool. I like the headstock. There's a blue one, which is really cool. I prefer the 220, though.
I love yamaha guitars, I have 4 in all. Three electrics and a bass. My Fav model is an old one called and eterna that I think was only avaliable in black.
Myst - how do you host those pictures??? I will put up a picture of my yamahas as two ofthem are HEAVILY modified - I think you will dig it.
I use www.photobucket.com
. You can upload pics and vids in heartbeat there. I can't wait to see you Yamahas, Big Job!

They're definitely on the lowest rung of the ladder in build quality and tone. Stick to US, Japan, and Taiwan Yamaha models... you'll be much happier.
In the pic, the 220 looks
like a sturdy instrument, though. On the back, on the bottom there is a oval shaped line, in which you see text which says in which factory it's made. The text is different from my nineties Yamaha, which is made in Korea. I'll have to check the guitar out in a shop, and see if it's any good or not. I hope it is, because I am really interested in it!
I've just bought one of those 604's and it's awesome!
In fact, I've become VERY fond of the Pacificas. I bought a 521 not long ago too and was suprised to find that it had a beautiful flamed neck and played better than pretty much any other guitar I've had (sounded great too.)
What color is your 604W, Ibanez249?
My Yamaha is the finest guitar I played so far too. It's amazing. I'm glad to hear you like the pics, Ibanez249.
I'll see if I can find any more which are worth posting. I took a lot of them the other day.
And that blue one really looks great! Don't know about the humbucker in the neck position, though. I always thought that didn't look so good.
