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.

I have a S. Yairi Model 9108 AD___ and have the same question. Also, any recommendations for fixing the fret that's too high for the high-E string where the neck meets the body?

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.
