1971 S. Yairi

I have a 1971 Yairi Classical Guitar. It has a crack on the front about 8 inches long and 1/32 wide. It is signed by S. Yairi and is numbered as 1061 clase 9001. I am wondering if it is worth the $75-$150 to get it fixed.
Thanks
Mark

Re: 1971 S. Yairi

You're absolutely nuts if you don't get it fixed. If you don't, I'll take it off your hands for a couple hundred.

Re: 1971 S. Yairi

my 70's syairi 650 clasical suffered exactly the same damage .... a crack from heel to bridge along the book match .. most definatly fix it( or have a luthier do it) i love my syari's full rich tones,... and that old wood... Irreplacable! go for it!!

yairi 1172

bought a classical yairi 1172. It said "ad 1966" does this mean it was made in 1966? It seems pretty old.

Yairi Model 600

I just aquired this classical guitar. It says "made in Japan by Yairi" on the inside label and is dated 1966 or 1961 (handwritten and hard to read). I can't find any info on this guitar or what its worth. It sounds great though! Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Yairi Model 600

:I bought one similar "ad.1966" I guess that means it was made in 1966? Mine has "model 1172"If you look up the alvarez web site it says a.d. means the year of manufacture. But that is about all i know.
