: Who can tell me anything about Morris guitars, especially steel string, model WJ 20S, no. 809213.
I have a PA-65...I know absolutely nothing at all about it. All I know is that the sound quility is superb, and it has one of the best necks I have ever used.
I have a Morris that I bought in Sydney Australia in 1977. The only number I can find is W645. It has a three piece back with some nice abalone trim. Nice ivory style dots in the string pegs.
As a friend said "It's no longer a tree".. It sings. Really good for the big strum thing. I've had a passive pickup slotted into the bridge, put some slightly heavier strings and it now gets some bottle neck workouts.
Last time I saw any thing by this people was at a music show in London circa 1995 for nearly a £1000.
I'm amazed that I haven't seen more as it's nicely built, looks like a Martin D whatever (dreadnought stylee) and sounds great.
Just wanted to let you know, that I have exactly the same problem. I got a WJ 20S S.Nr.808446 and can't find anything about the guitar. Maybe we can stay in touch if we find any information.
Hello, my kids found an old morris guitar, and I cant seem to find anything about it either. Please let me know if there is a site about this product! Thanks (in advance) ---Chris
Here's the Morris site:
Morris guitars are made near Nagagno Japan. They are one of the most popular guitars in Japan. A lot of the other manufacturers have moved production to Korea or Southeast Asia but Morris is still made in Japan. I find them to have a little more personality and detail compared to comparably priced Yamaha and similar guitars.

: Who can tell me anything about Morris guitars, especially steel string Model M-300 LHNAT
I know about the company and about their higher end fingerstyle guitars (S-series). Their S series guitars are all made in Japan and are of high quality. What would you like to know? I can try and find out for you. They will be having an English website soon. Right now, it's all in Japanese so of no help to most of us.

I was dong a search for info on my Morris and came across this message board. I've got a Morris Les Paul copy guitar that my dad bought at a guitar store for 75 bucks around 14 years ago and gave it to me when I started playing 8 years ago. As far as I'm concerned the quality and sound of this guitar is better than any 1500 Gibson Les Paul out there.
Anybody know anything about my Morris W-25. It seems very old...
I have a Morris MB-305-12 and also cannot find anything about it on the net??? Help?
I need info on the Morris guitar line, im not sure what model i have but its a full bodied electric...any clues?
I`ve had a Morris for about 13 years and have tried and owned all sorts of guitars. This one is a Model 335 but with gentle and softer neck. Very much a custom in between a 335 look with an Ibanez/PRS neck. Something odd but unique. Have had and tried several 335 Gibson but one would give the soft feeling this Morris has. Actually also have a Gibson Tal Farlow. Don´t fall in the marketing trap. If you feel she`s the one for you, follow your instinct.
: hi, i recently bought a old jazz bass by Morris made in japan. it's very 70s looking as it came with the vintage pickup shells. just that the the neck is as fat as a precisiion bass which most jazz bass are slim. But the sound is as good as my fender jazz. ANYONE LOOK ABOUT MORRIS BASS as i couldn't trace anything online. greatly appreciate from Singapore.

I have a Martin look-alike Morris W609TM, Serial No. 82106 and I bought it in 1985 in Europe, used, for $500 (US). I haven't found anything about this model anywhere on the Internet, so if someone has some info to share, I would really like to hear it. All I could find was that Morris guitars are very highly rated with acoustic guitar players all over the world and they were selling them in US up until 1980. Recently (in the past year, they have introduced a new line of acoustic/electric and classical guitars and there are approx. 20 dealers of these new Morris guitars in the US today. Their web-site is http://www.morrisguitars.com/ but there's nothing on the history of Morris guitars and no words about the models before this new "S" line. Of course, there's nothing about their line of electric guitars. But, maybe they are owned by a bigger company (Moridaira) now, so there's nothing on past history. I'll try to find out more by writing to them.
I've been playing for over 30 years, 15 professionaly, and have owned and played just about any guitar out there on the market, but none of them have the sound (playing live or recording in studio) and the personality like this Morris. In so many words, this model is the best sounding instrument I've ever owned.
I have a Morris a-18d signed by A Harats or Haruts. Serial #300905. Please email me. It was my departed fathers so it's not for sale. I just want to k ow its value and more about it. Thanx in advance
Here's my email email@example.com. I'm the a-18D guy.
I just purchased a classical guitar by Morris it's an M50. I contacted the company and was told it was built circa 1975 spruce top and rosewood sides and back. It is a beautiful sounding instrument. It was in near perfect condition too, just one scuff the size of a dime on it's side. I paid $60 for it. Score in my opinion.
I recently had a morris model pa50 nat given to me, a steel string acoustic with a cutaway and pickups. The neck is similar to an electric. This guitar plaus and sounds amazing. I still haven't tested the pickups. It seems there is info on many morris models but I have found nothing on this one. I reallly Really would like an estimate on its value or any other informatipn about it. Please please please if anyone knows email me
we have one too and can't find out a thing. I bought this for my hubby years ago from a warehouse that distributed all kinds of instruments and the only reason they sold it to me was I begged & worked next door and promised not to tell anyone as they were not supposed to deal with the public. It came in a cardboard box. We were told it was a Fender copy. If anyone knows anything please let us know too. :-) Thanks.
pa-50 1986 model
Anyone know about this one? It's beautiful and has beautiful tone. It needs a new string, and I am wondering if I need to stick with nylon?
like to know what is the cost of a md500 morris guitar
I purchased mine in 1979 for $125.00 and the counter guy thru in a hard case for free.
It has a spruce top and mahogany sides, back and steel strings ,it was manufactured in Korea and it still is in very good condition .
I have never adjusted the truss rod , tuning heads still work ,holds a tune for months and months .
No splits , No glue letting go , the finish is still very good .
The action was very high ,I lowered it and playability is much better .
I happy with my inexpensive Morris.
I hope this helps. Cheers! :)

They have all the new stuff on site and a good bit of the guitars history but nothing on the 801.
Can anyone help?
There is a fan page on facebook.... https://www.facebook.com/pages/Morris-Guitar-Fan-Page/197384863694528?fref=ts
Heaps of people just like the rest of us trying to find info and sharing even more old info.
May i know the manufacturing dates for Morris A-10 and Morris M1501?
I have a black Morris Custom Les Paul style guitar and i can not seem to find any info on this guitar. I have seen from other pictures that it appears to be early to mid 70s make.. Does anyone have a clue what this guitar could be worth?
Hi, anybody here knows the age of my acoustic guitar Morris WE1080. I bought it almost 10yrs ago 2nd hand.
I own a Morris WT-19 (N°829941) bought around 1980
Anyone know its value? Purchased my Morris standard guitar on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles circa 1972-1974. It is in excellent condition and as someone above mentioned it does hold its tune for months/years. Used very seldom. Made by Terrada Gakki Mftg. Co. in Nagoya, seen on the inside. I suppose that is a Japanese maker. Has a signature of Yamada as inspected by.
Was given a Morris Guitar from a friend. Model No. F-12 inspected by T. Okabe, doesn't have a year on it. Would like to know an around about year it was made and just some history on it if anyone has some. Thank you
I bought my Morris W-840 in 1983 in Sydney Australia for around $A360 new. At the time I knew zip about tonewoods and guitar history & design. All I knew was that I loved the tone: deep, resonant lows, rich, warm mids, and sweet, shimmering highs. So I played it for 5 years or so before drifting into Telecasters, then recently dug it out again after reading "Clapton's Guitar" by Allen St John. Lovely, lovely instrument. Very like a Martin dreadnought in looks and design. Looks like a bookmatched close-grained spruce top, brazilian rosewood sides, 3-piece rosewood/maple/rosewood back, ivoroid binding on sides & neck. Even with the old strings, the tone is rich & glorious. Here's me thinking, "Wow! What have I got here?!" I've tried contacting Morris / Moridaira guitars on their US website for info about the W-840's background, but haven't had a reply.
Anyone got any info on a Morris MG26, its a classic nylon, with solid top and bottom. Has Made in Japan sticker on the back of the headstock also Serial number 835678.
I have just inherited a MG26 from my brother who passed away, Its Serial Number is 852554.
Stamped inside on the base of the neck is "062501" which I am guessing is 25 June 2001 build date.
I know nothing else about it. I'm an Aussie but my brother was in Boston from 2001 - 2006, so I'm guessing he bought it there.
It plays nicely. I've never had a quality classical guitar before, just cheap ones. This one far exceed anything I have ever played and I would never part with it.
I know exactly what you mean....
I have a spruce-top MG-23...
Equal in build to really high-end guitars...
Check the "Inspected By" signature...
A number of them were signed by Matsuoko....possibly before he started his own brand..
I have a Morris FY-503, has anyone ever heard about this model. I found it in an old house
