::The DY 50 was one of Yairi's limited editions. Not too sure about the construction of the DY 50 but the
DY50N was a laminate Brazillian Rosewood. As you may surmise, the Brazillian Rosewood stocks are reserved for the primo stuff Kazuo produces. Matter of fact, the "N" suffix always denotes Brazillian. I have owned two, recently selling the cosmetically best one to the lead singer/guitarist of "Nellie", formerly known as "Worship Project", a band of some repute here in Salina, KS. FYI, I own or have owned 9 Yairis, and rate the 50n's I have owned as the top of the "creme de la creme". Only one I have that compares is a non-Alvarez Yairi, model # AR321S, which is also a straight shoulder but has a sound that smokes all of the Gibsons for the bright/country sound. The 50N that i kept has a repaired broken headstock that nonetheless smokes most d28s for tone, sound and volume, and i have played quite a few of those.
Hope this helps, and by the way, I have only seen one Yairi that was a "lemon", a DT38 that was "rode hard, and put up wet"! In short, you will probably never go wrong with a Yairi. Check "em out at Harmony Central reviews, and you will see what I mean. Over and over again, you will see, "Bought a Yairi, sold my Martin"
Hope this helps,
Steve Lawrence

Hi Rod, I may have much information about your particular guitar. Did you buy it in Chadbourn, NC ? If so, I owned it for about 30 years.

That is really one of the GREAT Yairis'. It is the 50th anniversary issue. I bouught one new in 1980 and for the period that I owned it I couldn't have been more pleased. When new it came with a belt buckle (for a 2" belt, sign of the times) I got a divorce and as things go my guitar mistreiously disapered. Hmmm. Anyway, I'll I have left is the 50th anniversary Belt Buckle.
The guitar is a keeper. Give it allot of love
