Default Info on Yamaha FG460SA?

I recently acquired a Yamaha FG460SA. From the serial number, I've determined that it's about a 1992 or so model. Does anyone have any information about this particular model? Solid or laminate? Where it falls in the Yamaha guitar food chain?

It plays great, with a "heavier" sound that my Taylor 310CE. Again, just curious if there are any thoughts on this instrument from forum friends. For one thing, I'm debating if it's worth installing a K&K in it - I know that if it sounds good that's all that matters, but I don't want to overvalue it. Thanks!

I have had one for over 10 years. It has laminate back and sides, solid spruce top, and a (cheesy) abalone binding and rosette. Mine also has gold tuners. (I would tell you what I paid and what it is worth but it would be censored here.) Yamaha also built an all wood line as well as an all laminate line so I would say these were in the middle of the pack. Also with Yamaha's serialization you can only tell within ten years when it was made (71, 81, or 91) I think they are a very nice guitar for a modest price. I also have the sales brochure listing the entire line during that era but have no way to post it.

Enjoy it!

Thanks, SMan. Mine does indeed have the binding and gold tuners. I bought it to use as a travel or camping guitar, but boy, I really like it a lot. I've had a few guitars over the years, and this model is just a real solid guitar. Loud, too. Thanks again!
