What's the meaning of the R of the Yamaha G2?
The serial is "R 4941645". is it a 199x piano?

The R is information about some particular aspects of the piano. Someone from Yamaha may know what they are. It would date from about 1991.

The letter designation indicate which "version" it is. The versions differences were generally cosmetic (i.e. beveling the lid, different music racks, etc.)... usually nothing major. It enables their parts department to know which replacement part to ship.

Common models of the G Series were G2E, G2C, G2F, G2R, G2J, etc.
