Pearl accoustic dreadnought by Hayashi # 01376

Posted by kevin lloyd-jones on Sat, 02/14/04 - 17:24:24.

I bought this guitar second-hand in about 1976. It has the name Pearl (as in drums) in exactly the same logo inlaid in mother of pearl. I have never seen another guitar by this maker. Inside the guitar it says "Pearl Guitar" underneath this it says Four or Tour(I can't tell)then "Made by Hayashi" and the Serial # is 01376. It is black with a rosewood/ M-O-P inlaid neck. Can anyone give me any info about the history/value etc. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks - Kev

Hayashi is a Japanese name.He is probably the luthier who made the guitar. The makers of Pearl drums once made a guitar, but stoped making guitars to consentrate on drums and accessories. The guitar is probably worth way more now than when new, and is likely to be a collectors item in Japan.The inlays are probably of real mother of pearl and real abalone. try a few searches for pearlmusic, pearldrums,etc to see if you can turn up a lead on the company,maby get lucky and email the company.
