Re: Aria classical guitar Model #A552
Very few of these excellent sounding Aria A552 Classical
Guitars ever come around these days. If you get your hands on one for under $600 U.S., you'll have a real bargain on your hands. The ones made in the late 1960's are highly sought out by Japanese guitar collectors, because they were produced for export only. Imagine working in the Aria on these excellent guitars and not being able to purchase one!
Everytime I see one of these A552 Classical guitars for sale on online auctions, the price seems to go through the roof. I have had mine since Christmas 1969, and my serial number is 2247. I will never sell mine, it's been my favorite guitar for nearly 40 years. They really stand the test of time. I've only met one other person in my life with one of these A552's and he was keeping his too!
