I took me a while to get it tuned, but that is expected from nylon strings.
I am impressed by the sound I can get from this instrument.
The spruce top is paired with similarly resonant mahogany backs and sides.
Pickguards are elimated to reduce unwanted vibrations on the soundboard.
The solid cedar top is supported by traditional ladder bracing and produces a warm tone and plenty of dynamic range. The mahogany neck features a dual action truss rod, which keeps the guitar playing perfectly in any environment.
We have not been able to track down all the serial numbers.
Some archives have been lost during the owner changes.
However, the process continues and we will update these pages when we find more information.
Here is a bit of information I found while searching for information about my Aria (Ariana) A570 Classical Guitar, which you Aria owners may find beneficial. The manufacturing of Aria guitars were subcontracted out to Matsumoku from 1964 to 1986. All in has is a model number of "A9414" and another number stamped into the inside of the guitar of "61218".
At least for Aria guitars, made by Matsumoku, the serial number contains the year of manufacture in the first 2 digits, thus a guitar from 1979 would have a serial number, such as 79####. Here is the serial number on neck plate stamped 2030915 A sticker on the heel of the neck PB02XDBS There are no indications stamped or stickers relating to where it was manufactured as of country or manufacturers Last l would like to know a close proximity of its value in today's market (blue book) as well what a new one would go for if still made! 7/6/16 USA I purchased my guitar in summer of 1970 from Bernardo's Guitar Shop on Brooklyn Avenue, Eat Los Angeles.
