Yamaha SA 2100-11

This image is supposedly a 2100-11 but I can't be certain but it does look very like the catalogue scan.

According to the Yamaha archives this guitar was made ( presumably in Japan) from 1988 to 1991 and retailed on release at 150,000 yen.   It appears in the 1990 Japanese catalogue at 139.000 yen showing an Antique Stain guitar.
There is speculation that this guitar is a 2100 made in Taiwan, or that it is the successor to the 2100. Given that the 2100 was in existence up until 1991 at least and this guitar first appears in 1988 it isn't the successor to the 2100. It has a different headstock style so isn't a version of the 2100 it is a separate model. Also the 2100 was made in Japan and Taiwan. The made in Taiwan bit could also be right for the 2100 though, I haven't seen one of these anywhere. They only appear in Japanese catalogues suggesting domestic only but maybe those made in Taiwan were exported. All the information below is from the Archives and catalogues.
