My very first electric guitar in 1965/66 was an Ayar. It was an absolute piece of junk. Other than for nostalgia, I wouldn't really want one. ;-)

I bought a Hofner Bass copy made by Ayar back in 1972 after my Hofner was stolen.It was a dead ringer for the Hofner.Many people asked me about it as I removed the Ayar name from the head stock.It played,and sounded as good as the Hofner,as the Hofner, back then was a relatively cheap Bass guitar,only made expensive by McCartney using one.The music store I purchased it from told me it was probably made in Japan,and further stated they were decent guitars for the money.I played on a few Ayar acoustic guitars that were basically junk.I suppose you win a few,lose a few .I don't think any of the Ayar brand guitars will ever bring money,or value.However,if you have a good one,and it plays well,keep it !

:I have a 4 pick-up Ayar 6-string solid body. Above the strings, in a stainless steel housing, are the flip switches for each pick-up plus an R-> and <-S switch for each pick-up. It also has a roll or rotating switch for each set of two pick-ups. My dad bought this guitar (used) in breckenridge, Tx in the late 1950's or early 1960's for my brother and I. My brother graduated high school in 1964 and left the guitar at home for me to play. If my memory serves me right, the company that made the guitar may have gotten in to some trouble because the guitar was too much like another guitar already in production. I've never really heard anything else about Ayar. This one has a couple of scratches on it, but I'm going clean the switches and I need to replace the plastic (or ivory) inserts around the tuning keys. Other than that its in pretty good shape and brings back a lot of memories.

I found an ayar guitar at a garage sale. I paid ten dollars for it. It has all it's strings, not missing anything, but someone replaced a tuning key. No one seems to know anything about it. I had some guitar experts look at it and they said it has good tone,but to not go professional with it. I plugged it up to distortion and it sounds great.
