Alvarez Yairi WY1

-Hello. Does anyone have one they want to sell, or trade?

Re: Alvarez Yairi WY1

: -Hello. Does anyone have one they want to sell, or trade?

I realize this is a few years old, but if anyone is interested, I have a nice WY-1 for sale, made in '92

jordan_rocks6@yahoo.com

Alvarez Yari WY-1

Mine says it was made in '90. I play professionally, and my WY-1 has been great for these 24 years. I moved the output to the strap end as having the cord come out the bottom was a problem playing while sitting. I also put longer wire on the battery connections. My only problem with this guitar is having to take the strings off to access the battery. It plays like a dream, and encourages improvisation.

Yairi flamenco made for Charlie Byrd

I have a CBS Masterworks Yairi MWG Y1040 , handmade, cypress and rosewood flamenco guitar made for Charlie Byrd to play with his initials in mother of pearl on the neck of the guitar. Just wondered if anyone could know the value? I bought it from Richard Harrison (his arranger) at the Charlie Byrd music house in maryland in the early '70's when he was selling some instruments.

Are you sure it's not a YW500?

Re: 1976 YM500 K Yairi

It would be a YW500 (Yairi, Western), it is the designation used for non US yairi's. US yairi's were DY's (Dreadnought Yairi)

Yairi No 889 1965 B&M Soloist

Hello, and I hope to find out more about a guitar a friend bought for
�10 from a car boot sale a few years ago. Its a bit battered and the
neck is now detaching from the body so another friend (who builds
guitars) is going to fix it. Its marked inside the body as a

B&M Soloist
Yairi
No 889
AD 1965
Japan

anyone know anything about this instrument. Its a lovely dark wood
with darker markings, and a small sound hole and S shaped end to the
fret board at the body end. (excuse my ignorance of guitars and even
music, im absolutely un-musical myself) What sort of wood would it be?

I've seen various comments and some adds on the internet listing the WY1 as having solid back and sides.
