Hello, I have this Guitar, you will buy it?

Re: Alvarez 2555 Silver Anniversary

Commenting on the 2555. I have had 3 of these and they usually go for 200-300 dollars depending on condition and desirability at the time, of course. Do you have one for sale? Thanks in advance for responding.

Advice wanted - My 1983 DY-47

Hi! My DY-47 sounds great (with bone nut & saddle) - but, sadly is very, very, worn. I need a new guitar - on a budget. What new acoustic might sound like this old gem? I was thinking a JUMBO guitar? EJ-200 or the Yamaha jumbo? Any comments?

Re: Advice wanted - My 1983 DY-47

Yes, anything made by Taylor.........

Yairi Model 750

I haven't play mine in a long time. It is a Yairi and inside it states "Sada Serial 36 Model 750 1970" There is also a stamp that I can't quite make out.
I'd appreciate any info and I was considering letting my daughter take it as a loaner.

dy71

A family member gave me this guitar a DY71.I was wondering how much is it worth ? and a little bit about it ? its in new condition It is nt for sale.Thanks

Re: dy71

Hello,

Alvarez-Yairi guitar DY71 is a very nice, yet mid priced guitar. It was hand made by craftsman Kazuo Yairi. This is a six string acoustic dreadnought with a solid spruce top rare Koa back and sides. Excellent sound and playability. I Purchaased a used 1995 model recently for $875.

Re: dy71

PS Just to clarify, this guitar is the highest of qualities and is every bit the quality of the high end guitars made in the USA. I have both. The automatic predisposition against guitars made overseas is unfortunate, and in this case, is unconscionable.

Re: dy71

The original price was 1150.00. The award-winning electronics (sys500) were 300.00, if they were included. Did not usually come with a case. They have high grade Koa back and sides (Hawaii) and usually Spruce or occasionally Cedar sounding boards. Upgrades on mine are ebony fretboard and gold hardware. They are excellent guitars. If you ever want to sell it let me know. Even though they are made by a very special luthier or his apprentices, Kazuo Yairi, they don't hold their value well because they are made in Japan rather than the US. They make entry to the US through St. Louis Music. Later, SJ cby4evr@msn.com

what is my Alvarez Yari worth?

I bought an Alveraz Yari in 1995. It is a black acoustal electric. It has gold tuning knobs and pearl inlets. I bought it for around $1,100 in 95. Did I get taken or is it really worth that much. It has a certification from Kazuo yairi that it was hand made.

J.C.

Re: what is my Alvarez Yari worth?

at $1100, you didn't get taken. I'm not as familiar with your model, but Yairis generally go for $1200 and up retail. I've admired these guitars for some time now and will soon be bringing home a '91 DY 50.

Kiari classical guitar

I'd be grateful if anyone can tell me how my guitar fits into the Yairi range, indeed if it's genuine or not. The label inside says Kiari Guitars by K.Yairi, Japan, model number is fuzzy but appears to be CY 640, serial number is 5 1157. I bought it new from a UK dealer in 1974/5 not knowing much about guitars at the time and use it to play folk/acoustic accompaniment. It looks identical to photos of the current CY140 classical, sounds superb and wows people who here it for the first time.

Also, what are the best strings for this guitar.

I'm just considering buying a Yairi G-1f second hand giutar in mint condition what would be a reasonable asking price

DY-78 guitar. replacement of pick guard and refinishing???

Greetings from Warner OK.

I have an Alvarez Yairi guitar that has been played with the pick very low on the strings. There is worn finish and some wood abraded away just below the pickguard. there are lots of scratches and abrasions on the finish. Would it devalue the guitar to attempt any type of repair/replacement of the pickguard?
The finish could be polished down and then a fresh coat of finish put back over it to smooth out the various scratches. Would this devalue the guitar??
The guitar is in excellent playing condition.

Thanks!
Ray

Re: DY-78 guitar. replacement of pick guard and refinishing???

Ray,
I bought a DY 78 in a pawn shop recently. The previous owner flat picked it and the burl pick guard was ruined. I got some pick guard material from Stewart-MacDonald and replaced the pick guard and head stock veneer. Looks good. Don't know if/how it will affect its value, but I like it.

K Yari 1976 model YW135 ?

Does anybody know what this is worth.It has been played very little,like knew?

K Yairi YW135

I don't even know if this site is still active. I have one of these, which I imported from a seller in Japan in 2010. It is an amazing guitar to play and the sound is as good as anything I have ever heard. I have a collection of 20 to 30 guitars and this is one of the better instruments on the walls. I aid a total of $875 and think it is worth considerably more today. I have only heard of three others in the States.

Alvarez Yari DY 47 1988

I have owned this guitar since the late 1980's. Any idea what its worth? (good condition) Serial # 57660. Inside label bears Kazoo Yari's signature.
