Re: yairi 'cbs-masterworks' classical ca. 1971??
: For those who love a challenge, I'm trying to see if this guitar is a legitimate "vintage" Yairi Masterworks classical or something else. All I know is the following:
: The label says it's made for "CBS Masterworks by Kazuo Yairi"
: has "MW" burned into back support, vertical arrangement of letters;
: has "MWG-Y1010" as model number on label;
: has serial number 14611, supposedly
: All of this affirmed by seller. I've not seen the guitar in person.
: My concern: I thought serial nos. started with dynastic year, then month, so 4611-- would be better. Also, can't fine model number--nobody's heard of it. And, finally, what is "CBS"??
: Any help greatly appreciated, please email me.

Well.... In my search I came across this post, Makes me
smile! I have a ceder top "CBS Masterworks"
Kazuo Yairi Model no MWG-Y 1030, number on the heel is
11466. That number is one away from Enzo's :o)
I know this is no help. Small world.
