Re: Aria model A 551 B classical guitar

: : I have A Aria A551B and the serial number is 00292. They started making these in 63, and stopped making them in the early 70's. They retailed for about $150 Back then. They also came out with a A551M in the early 80's. Made in china at that time, unlike the early ones made in Japan.

I just started playing my mom's old A551B (It has to be about 30 years old) SN is 00586...it sounds great, and I'm loving playing it...and mom is ecstatic that it's not just collecting dust anymore. I'd also like more info.

Re: Aria model A 551 B classical guitar

I have an Aria classical guitar I bought new in San Francisco in early 1969. I paid $65.00 and it came with a hardshell (wooden) case. It is model A551 and SN is 08128. Not in very good shape after all these years, but still has great tone. Doesn't seem to be much info about these old guitars. Would be interested in any history or current value.

I purchased My Aria A551 s/n 00710 from a pawn shop for $100.00 back in 1994. It must be considerably older than I thought by the serial number. I figured late 60's early 70's. Made in Japan. Anyone found more information on this model?

Aria Model # show H FA 583 452717

I have and Aria FA 583, it was purchased as a gift for me about 1970 on the sticker inside it has the model number but no serial number, 452717 is stamped in the wood above the sticker. I think it was about $100.00 but I am unsure since it was a gift!!!!!!! I don't use it much but is in excellent condition and sounds great.

Hi, I have a Aria Model 551 Serial No. 344 and i bought it new in a shop in Germany at 1974 and i payed around 125 € at this time, that's all i can tell, and it's still in a very good condition, because barely played after the 70s Peter

I have a Shiro labeled A550 by Aria

I inherited the guitar from my late father, who purchased this guitar from Meyer-Musik Germany 1970, its exactly the same shape as the A551 by Aria, with some difference's.Has Brazilian Rio Rosewood back and sides, instead of Mahogany as the A551 of Aria, also according to my mother, item was purchased brand new, so how does a A551 b out date a previous model that was bought New in 1970? Is this guitar older than originally stated? Labeled Shiro after Shiro Arai founder of Aria Guitars.

Aria model no.a 551b

I picked up one of these at a pawn store as well.I paid $300.00 dollars for it and a soundhole pickup.I`m just now putting new strings on as the old ones were dead.it was labelled as being produced in the early 60`s.I thought it may be a bit pricey but the playability was just too exciting for me to pass up.I`ll keep you posted.I think it`s a beautiful classical guitar.

Re: Aria model A 551 B classical guitar

My girlfriend has one of these guitars. She just brought it over here today, It says "2052" written on it and "a551" printed on a piece of paper inside it. It says "Japan" on the back of the headstock. I dont know anything else. Tell me what you think? Her grandmother bought it a long time ago, she says it was later sixties or early seventies... other then that she has no idea. I think it is pretty cool. Her brother put steel strings on it but I switched them for some nylons and it sounds very pretty to my ears. Its pretty sweet, I have never really played classical, mostly blues (gibson les pauls)

Re: Aria model A 551 B classical guitar

They say early 70 models don't have serial numbers, i have an Aria guitar, model No A-6 26 with no serial number. If anyone has info on this model that would be great.

Re: Aria model A 551 B classical guitar

I have a Aria Model A551B that I swapped for my old classical guitar. The serial number is 01221. The sound on it is fantastic too. I couldn't find any info on these guitars either.

Re: Aria model A 551 B classical guitar

I picked up this guitar off the street the people where going to give it away. It says 1960 on it. I don't know anything much. Have you found out anything?

Re: Aria model A 551 B classical guitar

My Aria Concert series model A551B serial no. 01122 was purchased in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1969 for about $80.00 Canadian which at the time was about $95.00 American. It still looks great except for a couple of scratches and nicks. The sound is amazing. For the person who put steel strings on theirs, never do this as the steel puts too much stress on the neck. You couldn't pay me enough to part with it now.

We purchased a Aria Classical Guitar in June, 1969 with a much earlier serial number. WE, also cannot find any information as to the value. Thought the date of purchase may be of some help to you. Have you come up with any other information since your posting?
