Not underrated here, I have a few I brought back from Japan with me and owned a whole lot more while I lived there. Mine are nylon strings however, there were old Yamahas in every single guitar store I went into over there, had a bunch of their electric too....probably my favourite brand right now, they seem to have the thickest rosewood fretboards than most other makers. Even the low end stuff I saw had great necks.
Congrat's Mark! Prepare to be pleasantly surprised, and enjoy.
(I think the 't' designates a tinted top. Looks like a two piece back? Most are a three piece back, but some are two -- both are desirable, with the two piece being the rarer. The Yamaha Guitarchive seems to be down for the last month. )
