YAIRI GL600 PARLOR SIZE GUITAR FROM 1970's

I need to replace the bone saddle on a K. Yairi GL600 Parlor size guitar made about 1975.

The original saddle was about 3 inches long but the thickness seems to be much thinner than full size acoustic guitars.
Can anyone please tell me where I can obtain such a saddle ?
What are the official factory dimensions of the ORIGINAL GL600 Saddle ?
I would prefer if the new bone saddle is pre-slotted.
Thank you everyone in advance for your valued assistance.

Kind regards,

K Yairi model GL600 guitar

This parlor model classical guitar by K. Yairiis no longer made, dates from the early 1970s. Mine is a 1973, have had it for over 30 years from the original purchaser (now-deceased.) I will not part with it for anything! According some references I have found, it is now considered rare. The GL-600 is Kazuo Yairi's incredible re-creation of the early 1800's "Romantic guitar."

So far as pricing, I saw one sold a couple years ago for $430, and another listed in Jan 2012 for $650 (don't know if that one sold yet.)

As a general guideline, info below says it's between $300 to $600, depending upon condition.

I have this same guitar. It says inside 1973 but I suspect it was made years prior to this aswell. Did you ever find out a worth on your guitar?

Thanks Chris

I picked up a GL 600 in Santa Cruz in 1983, inside lable says manufactured in 1974. Join the crowd, no idea what it's worth and not much info on the web.

Re: K. Yairi - Model GL600

I have 2, most of these are from the early 1970's, but you would need to check for numbers found on heelblock to narrow down the exact year, if it isn't stamped on the label.
