I bought it eBay for $200-300 at least five years ago. Seller said it was a prototype. It is made in japan and the SN is 4P14xxx with the x's being the production number. Yamaha dater puts it to Sept. 14 of '94 or '04. I'm leaning toward '04, but that is just a guess.
It has active electronics. I replaced the knobs, as the originals were plastic and I think one of them was broken. The replacements don't fit perfectly, they are cocked to one side as I believe the shafts were smaller than the knobs. I should probably go at them with some pipe fitting nylon.
Active electronics but passive pups I believe. All bass, treble, and blend switch all notched in the middle. P and J pick up configurations.
I really have no idea what it is. I believe he had some model number on it when he sold it, but I've long forgotten it. It has a very slim Jazz style neck. It does say Yamaha on the head stock, but it is very dim and translucent lettering. It was missing the truss rod cover when I received it originally.
Thank you all for your time. Here are some pics. (sorry for the dust!)
