Great info. Not to be confused with the high-end Yairi YC-250dandan wrote: ↑Sat Oct 21, 2017 8:58 amThe Yairi 250 was towards the bottom end of the Yairi range, but still a nice guitar. It has a solid spruce top and laminated mahogany back and sides. This is the same spec as the Yairi Soloist sold in the UK by Barnes & Mullins, which I have a soft spot for, as my friend's dad had one that I coveted when I was a kid. I guess I can trace my love for Japanese guitars back to that...BoiseClassic wrote: ↑Fri Oct 20, 2017 2:46 amThis is my first post (other than the introduction). Hope this is the right place.

Picked this up recently in my wanderings. Most of the Marco Polo guitars I have seen are no-name or suzuki. But this one had a Yairi label. Perhaps they did a small run for Marco Polo at some point? Label says year 1965. It came in, what I have to believe, is the original case. It is in good shape and surprisingly light. Played but not abused. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
