I have a YC G-185 Grand. The serial# is G 054208, I can't figure out the age. Can anyone decipher for me ? I am trying to figure out if this piano was manufactured during the years when the faulty alloy was used on the action brackets. I have read this took place 1990-1994. Thanks for your help.

If it was, you would already know it as the brackets would have expanded to the point where the piano wouldn't play.
