Alvarez 5009 Artist series.

Hi.
About 6 months ago I bought an Alvarez 5009 classical guitar.
The 5009s are now called the Professional Series. My 5009 is called the Artist series. I saw Professional 5009 advertised as a 1997 guitar with a 90xxx serial number. Mine has a 49xxx serial number, thus I assume much older. Any Ideas of the age?
Thanks, Charlie

Can anyone tell me about this guitar? I can find the DY 38 but not the DY 38 commerative.

This isn't a commemorative model, the C in the model only denotes it should be a cutaway model.

K.Yairi guitar model AR373E

I was wondering how many of this model were made. I bought mine in 1985 and still have it and will always have it. I paid $500.00 and worth every penny. I only saw one identical to mine in a Irish pub, the gentleman told me to keep it since it had triple in price. For me it's not the price that matter's it's the quality and sound that I enjoy. Cheers!

I can probably help you, but would need more info. Post the numbers you find on the heelblock (block of wood, inside the guitar at the base of the neck).

These are all laminate models..top Spruce, back and sides Rosewood depending on the year made, older models may be worth a little more, or less. Usually sell for less than $175 on EBay, just depends on who is looking at the time. Not bad considering they had a MSRP in 1980 of $220.

Yairi FY 40B value?

I am considering trading in my Yairi FY 40B (circa 1990?). What's the most reliable source for a value range?
I'd sure appreciate any help...
Thanks.

Alvarez model 5053/ ser # 17293

Can someone tell me what this guitar is worth? I traded a yamaha 12 string for it in the mid 70's. Been playing it ever since. The sound has gotten better as the years go by. It's not a Yairi.
Thank you very much.

Re: Alvarez model 5053/ ser # 17293

I can tell you it is an all laminate model, spruce top, Flame grain Rosewood back and sides. Have seen them for sale at silly prices that you'd expect to see for an Alvarez Yairi model, and incorrect specs listed (solid AAA tops, Brazilian back and sides, etc.)~

Idea on value of a 1984 Alvarez DY56

DY74 - 1990

I own a Model DY74 - 1990 with Serial # 44524, and my question is how much is this guitar worth at this time and will increase much in the coming years ?

Re: DY74 - 1990

: I own a Model DY74 - 1990 with Serial # 44524, and my question is how much is this guitar worth at this time and will increase much in the coming years ?

It has a lot to do with the condition of the guitar, past repairs, needed repairs, cracks, dents, dings, etc. Also the newer version isn't as popular as the original, so would probably bring in a little less.

If in excellent condition, around $500 to $600, average condition, $350 to $425.

These guitars are more popular now than 10 years ago, but there's no way to know if it will increase or decrease in the future.

It was the bottom of the Y series line, from the early 1970's.

Alarez- Yairi DY54

What are the Top, Back and sides made from? Is it all solid wood

Alvarez- Yairi DY54 1982

Does anyone know what this guitar is made of? Someone once told me Cedar Top-and I buy that. The back is made in two pieces and I would guess mahogany but I am not sure. The sides are the real puzzle. I can't even tell if they are solid wood or laminated. I hope there is someone out there who can help me w/this info. I want to sell it. The sound is excellent. Thanks Rob

1983 Alvarez Yairi Dy 74 Signed in mint condition

She's been with me from the day she was born. It is signed by Yairi and made in Japan without a scratch, I was wondering she's worth anything. NOT TRYING TO SELL!!! Couldn't part with her, I bought her when I was 21 in 1983 and she goes with me everywhere. I am poor due to living on disablilty after working 23 years. But I was curious and bored today so I was playing and looked at the serial number to cover for insurance when I noticed it was signed and was wondering how much I should insurance to put on her along with the rest of things. She maks the most beautiful sound I have EVER heard. I went on line having no idea what a Yairi was and found this note.

Sincerely,
Janine
