I have a 1984 K. Yairi AR381 (signed by Kazuo Yairi) that I bought new in 1986. I believe I paid $400-$500 for it at that time. It is a shallow bodied (about 3.5" deep) electric(passive)/acoustic dreadnought cutaway. It has an ebony fretboard with abalone inlays, a metallic blue sunburst finish and a lacquered black back/neck. It has an arched back but is a flat top. I am unable to tell what type of wood it is made of because of the finish. It is a very unique beauty that has wonderful sound and action. I have never been able to find any mention of it anywhere. It is in very good condition. Has anyone ever heard of this model? Does any one have any idea of its current value?
