First, does your red label say Nippon Ghaki on it? If so, it's possibly a 1971 model, made on April 7th, unit number 261. The 7 digit serial numbers aren't listed on the chart, but I have an FG300 with a 7 digit serial number, made in Japan 1971.
Can't be sure as this isn't very well documented.
I also have 2 Fg-75 guitars, both made in Taiwan, and the have 8 digit serial numbers.
