I owned a YairiDY61, Serial 64905. They 'kicked my door in'...(Thanks to a friend)...and took it..and all my stuff..**** ers..thats gettin busted in Kansas..hah..anyway..I still have the book and certificate that came with it..so I know the Woods..but not knowledgeable of Prices..ok..here's Exact quote..
Mine was completed on 5-87 and signed by the Guitar makin Guru..and has Date of Manufacture of 12-86..followed by his hand signed name. So..here's the Quote in book.

Signature Standard
DY61
"Each of the Signature guitars is unique. Kazuo Yairi feels special pride for every guitar, so each instrument bears his signature on the top.
The exquisite headstock is inlaid with a combination of natural materials that make a statement of distinction. Maple, abalone, ebony, walnut and burled mahagony all are hand inlaid with pride. tghe warm solid cedar top, natural wood bindings and beautiful burled mahogany give the instrument its tonal character. Even the machine heads are unique; gold, amber buttoned and die cast for accurate tuning. The genuine abalone and mother of pearl is inlaid in the 12th fret position to state the DY61 is truly something special."
There ya go..hope this msg is of value to you brother....d

ps The book i got with it has a bunch of alvarez yairi discriptions..so if ya need info on others i might have it..later

: : I have a 1986 DY61 and I love it. I have had it for 17 yrs +. I wonder what the value is - not that I would ever sell it.
