Kazuo Yiari 5009, 1970

Post by TheEvan » Tue Dec 25, 2018 11:50 pm

A friend just inherited his stepdad's Yiari. He doesn't have a cell so no pics. But I think I recall the 5009 was the top model of the day. He's trying to establish a value. He's calling it near mint...no cracks, no string dings, but a few pick marks below the soundhole. The case is near mint as well. I told him I thought value is in the range of $700-1200.

Thoughts?

Did a bit more searching. I'm thinking the value may be more along the lines of $400-700
