looking for info on alvarez 5021

I recently purchased a 5021. The sticker inside says model no. 5021 and inspected by 21-8-75. Inside stamped on the heelblock are the numbers 02500. I'm assuming that's the serial number. Can anyone shed any light onthis instrument? What year was it made, what woods were used, etc. Thanks.

There's a web site that explains the number stamped on the heel block. It is www.alvarezgtr.com/homepgs/yairidate.html

I would have to say it was made in august 21 of 1975. Not sure what the 02500 number is. Maybe the production number.

I am the proud owner of a 1979 Limited Edition CY115, serial # 32411 with head # 54080494 and guitar number 671 of 600(if that makes any sense). The head number verifys the August 1979 producton date and the info I have is that this was a very limited production built by Kazuo Yairi himself. Anyone with more info please pass it on. I have owned this since new but can find no listings of the CY115 in any Yairi websites.

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
