Find the manufacture date of your Yamaha piano from its serial number
This tool will decode the serial number of your Yamaha grand piano or Yamaha upright / vertical piano to show the year and location of manufacture, it works by firstly decoding the factory code to see where it was made and then comparing the rest of the serial with records for the first and last manufactured pianos in each year from each factory. It covers pianos made from 1917 to 2012 in all 6 factories (Hamamatsu Japan, South Haven Michigan, Hangzhou China, Thomaston Georgia, Jakarta Indonesia, Taoyuan Taiwan).
Please enter your piano's serial number. It can normally be found somewhere on the gold plate.
