Wilson Classical made by H. Yairi Luthier

Posted by Roger Hill on Sat, 10/26/02 - 21:50:03.

I own a hand made classical acoustic guitar, made in Japan by H. Yairi Luthier. It is a Wilson guitar and I am looking for some informaton about this. I have owned the guitar since 1975 and the number inside apears to be 85-1, or something close and is signed by H Yairi Luthier. Does anyone know any information about this type of guitar?

Whoops! Sorry about my last "follow-up." I hit "submit" a little too soon.

At any rate, no, I don't know diddly-squat about the Wilsons, but I did notice there's one for sale on ebay. Just thought it might be fun for you to watch the auction. :o) The title of the auction is, "1970 Hand Made Short Scale Wilson Japanese," at the following link.

It caught my interest because I have a little classical with no name on it, no label, solid cedar top and koa back, so I'm trying to find something out about it, as well. I guess it's not a Wilson, though, becuase inside, at the base of the neck, it says, "Made in Finland." It's driving me nuts, that I don't know what it is!

Good luck in your search for information.

About the yairi guitar with the Wilson name on the head.

I had one back in 78.It was made of laminated woods,and had a really good sound and action.It cost me 290.00 dollars with a hardshell case that looked like alligator skin.The head on that guitar tapers to the top.It was imported from japan by the firm Wilson & sons from new Jersey,and was made by yairi.Mine was stolen from me.It was in the trunk of my Honda Accord,also stolen. I would like to get another one.

Yairi/Wilson guitar

Hi Charles,

There are a couple of Wilson/Yairi classicals on eBay right now. One is a Buy it Now(with a case) at what seems a reasonable price. Just do a google 'Wilson Yairi guitar'. Good luck! I found it while looking for an S. Yairi to replace one I gave away years ago. Didn't know those things would become so collectible, although it always had a nice complex, deep sound. I bought mine(1973 S. Yairi model 800 class I think) new back in early 1974, and gave it away about 20 years ago. Still kicking myself. Long story.
