About This Listing

Really nice Aria SA-30 from the early to mid 70's with beautiful smooth and even sound and good volume. A few small dings and scratches typical of a guitar this age.
Solid cedar(?) top and laminate rosewood back and sides. The fretboard is ebonized rosewood. I approximated the year of production based the date of a similar model that has a later serial number.

Okay, the controversy: Another seller has stated that the SA and AG series were supervised by none other than Masaki Sakurai in the Kohno shop. He's still producing guitars so I sent him an email asking about this and he responded vaguely - in effect "we do our production and Aria does its production." He then offered me the customer care email for Aria and I then emailed them for a comment. An Aria spokesperson informed me that all records related to the model, year and serial number of this guitar have been lost.
Mmmmmm... the company hasn't changed hands and I've seen Takamine and Aranjuez guitars with Kohno and Sakurai signatures, and Aria employed other famous luthiers like Matano and Matsuoka. And, the headstock really looks like Sakurai and the workmanship is very good, but you'll have to decide for yourself with this one. ;-)
