But in looking your number up I cant find a reasonable explanation. No letters...and there are 6 digit numerical numbers but they dont match yamaha's codes...I would call yamaha and talk to a tech at 1 (714) 522-9000 Good luck
From the SN alone, it appears to be a 2003. Gibson quite frequently used the first and fifth number of the serial to tell you what year the instrument was built in. But this completely depends on the model/ where the serial number is located/ if it is stamped, embedded, or located inside of a hollow body. If you can post a picture of the guitar and the serial number that would greatly help.
That is a 1959 EB 2. For great condition, you can expect to get around $3200. But, a guitar is only worth what others are willing to pay so use the info to find what they have sold for. Great find, though!
It would help if you had identified the guitar maker and location of the serial number. I assume it's a Yamaha, but the serial number doesn't coincide with any of the typical systems they used. The first two numbers could be the year of manufacture, but the earliest Yamaha I could find was 1966, so you may want to go direct to Yamaha and ask if they recognize the number based on the model number.Yamaha Corporation of America

Well the "A" just refers to a sub model of the Yamaha CJ-818 (which is the model of the guitar). What is the location of the second number you listed? You might look inside the soundhole and at the butt of the neck to see if the serial is there.
If you will turn the instrument upside down you will find a date of production somewhere. My CLP-50 has been built in 1985 for example, I discovered in 2006. (I have forgotten the exact location of this date.)
