I don't have any pictures, but a friend of mine has an Aria AC30 and was wondering its value. I'm not really familiar with classical guitars or how they appreciate. Its in decent condition for a 30 something year old guitar. Does anybody know the value?


Also, it doesn't have a truss rod...do all classical guitars come without one? How does the fretboard get adjusted it if flexes too much or little??

Probably around 300 or so. That's what mine was appraised at. It was made before Aria even started really serializing their guitars, so it's kinda rare or whatever. I'm assuming his is like mine.

And to my knowledge, classical guitars don't have truss rods. I sure wish mine did though. But the tension on the neck is so little, if the guitar was crafted properly, it wouldn't get out of whack unless you left it in the sun or something.

Truss rods were made for the switch to all metal strings, since the tension increased so much.

Yeah, a majority of classical guitars are built without a truss rod. But nice find! It's always fun finding vintage instruments.
