  1. Just found this site, it seems to be somewhat active, and there’s some good information here. Maybe someone can help me out, I have an Alvarez by Kazuo Yairi that I’m trying to figure out the date on. I bought it in 1992, love this guitar and want to know more about it.

    Here’s the details:

    Alvarez by Kazuo Yairi
    Model: DY-68
    SN: 2813
    Heal block stamp: 471072

    On another site, it was suggested that the heal block indicated year 47 of Emperor Showa, which was 1972. When I bought it, for $200, the guy at the shop said it was from the mid-1980s. I don’t know what to believe, anyone know where to look these things up?
