Aria 9634

My Aria 12 String Western Guitar is a very sentimental piece to me. It was the first guitar I bought with my own money in 1979. It has no serial number, just the model number 9634.

Aria is a Japanese guitar company. It was founded in 1956 already by Shiro Arai. The letters of his name were switched around to “Aria” which means ‘expressive melody’. The story of the company is an interesting read.

Playing a 12 String guitar always was an amazing experience to me – and still is. It is perfect for adding a layer of rich chords when it is needed.
