I bought it in 1971, and recall paying between 700-800.00 for it ser# 24290, DY68...originally had the chrome diamond shaped tuners and the abalone inlay bridge pegs and the brown "foamfit" case, which I have since replaced...
as you can see, the headstock has the logo inlay, not the name...inside label has the K. can anyone help with a value, picture reference, or any other info you feel might be helpful?
Anyone interested in looking at it around the Columbus Ohio area? It is in excellent condition except for a small crack in the headstock that I've never been too concerned with because its been there now for 25 years (it sort of got sat by my young daughter while on the sofa). I am in Northern CA just moved back from WA so I haven't changed my # yet. (seller knew nothing) I just loved the look of the wood, sound, action, condition,etc.
I bought this new around 1974-75 and has original case. Yairi signature and M2 as model, SN 22451, Gifu, Japan. If anyone can give me a ballpark for what they'd list the guitar at if they were selling it, I'd be very grateful!

I thought I might sell it now because it's rarely played anymore, depending on what I can get for it. I have an Alvarez Yari Dy- 72 Signature Series 12 string 1991.

On some of the older models, Yairi used the "Patent applied for" Grover tuners. They repaired it and cleaned it up like the day it was new. I just love hearing the music that comes from that guitar. Yairi 12 String I'm wanting to sell, it is a Signature Series, Model No. Will email pictures to anyone interested and would greatly appreciate any info on value, construction etc. I have my dad's old 1984 Alvarez by Kazuo Yairi DY 56 BB that he bought for my mom to learn on, but he has since passed away and she knows nothing about it.
