Kazuo Yairi Alvarez CBS Masterworks guitar

Posted by Breana Morgan on Mon, 04/19/04 - 15:10:31.

Looking for information on a specific guitar, but can't seem to find info about CBS Masterworks ANYWHERE! My mom had a CBS Masterworks Limited Edition Classical Acoustic, that she bought in 1968. It was signed by Yairi, and the line of guitars was discontinued, so it's of significant value, but trying to pinpoint how much. (My brother GAVE it away, in a trade for a car that didn't last 2 months)

Anyway, enough rambling, if anyone could let me know if/where I could get information on CBS Masterworks guitars, it would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Kazuo Yairi Alvarez CBS Masterworks guitar

I have a CBS Masterworks 12 string that I bought new in the 60's, it still looks brand new and the sound is great. I had it appraised a few years ago $3500.00 Canadian. The neck has never bowed as a lot of 12 strings have. I paid around 300.00 for it but I don't think I could ever sell it. If you are interested I could send you some pictures of it.
