Classical Yairi custom - help!

[The body of this post has been lost]

Re: Classical Yairi custom - help!

(Originally posted 13:16:53 8/06/06)

Very blurry pictures, but it looks like a late 1960s/early 1970s K. Yairi Y40. It may possibly be a Y70. The guitar has laminated rosewood back and sides, with a rosewood fingerboard and a cedar or spruce top. Its a nice playing guitar.

The Yairi Y series is an early Yairi classical guitar series that is a distant cousin of the current CY classical guitar line.<

K. Yairi AR 373E

I have a signed - both inner label and on guitar top - 1983 K.Yairi acoustic/electric AR373E. I am not the original owner. It is VERY close to origninal/ mint condition...some very minor fret wear...I think it sounds awesome and have yet to see another like it. I occasionally check ebay and have only seen only some that are close to being similar, but none identical.

Re: K. Yairi AR 373E

hold onto it with both hands and don't ever let it go, it's a great guitar. I have a 1985 and it has tripled in value since I bought it

Know this is a very old post, so won't add a lot here, if you wish more info follow link near bottom of this post.

The DY92 LUTE BACK is made of alternating pieces (33 in total) mahogany, maple and rosewood. Labor intensive to say the least. Top is solid Spruce. Only second to the DY96 Abalone Supreme (in cost).

For help with most question on K. Yairi, Alvarez Yairi, Sada/Sadao or Hiroshi Yairi Acoustic guitars.

A friend of mine recently purchased on of these second hand for aud 2k ( in australia )
then again, a guitar is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
they are very rare and i believe they were produced as some sort of promotional deal.
Only two of these guitars ever made it out to australia. i can find out more if required. cheers
