I am from Munich, Germany and started to play guitar after more than 15 years. I play at the moment mostly nylon strings guitars (although I do have two steel strings guitars I used to play other before 15 years break). I bought these two old "ladies" in last half a year.
I searched a lot aboot Yairi and Carulli guitars but perhaps can somebody add some new information to the facts I already know or correct me.
The right one is 1977 Carulli H110. It is Ramirez 1A copy, probably made by Yairi. It is a big guitar, Scale Length: 665 mm, Nut Width: 54 mm. Cedar top and laminated (rosewood(?) sides. In internet I found out that Carulli H150 is Carulli branded (for German market) Yairi CY-130 Conquistador. But I still don't know the corresponding Yairi guitar for my Carulli guitar. The back and sides look like 70er YC-90 (model for Japanese market), but headstock and sound hole rosette are different. The guitar is loud and sounds really great with really deep basses and clear and strong trebles. I asked already by Yairi about it but haven't recieved any answer.
The left one is 1982 K.Yairi YC-04. It seems that YC-0X guitars have been mainly made for Australian market. I found two guitars for sails in gumtree which are looking pretty similar to my (YC-03 and G1). Top: cedar, back and sides : probably laminated schizomeria (because of the Australian market?). Scale Length: 660 mm, Nut Width:54 (or 53, I'm not 100% sure) mm. After getting new strings it is even a little bit louder and has more dynamic than Carulli and somehow more modern in the sound.
Does somebody has more information about the guitars and perhaps owns one?
In next weeks I'll try to record sound samples or/and videos and post it.
Thanks a lot in advance for your answers.
