I saw an all mahogany 12 string acoustic at a pawn shop this week. The guy claimed that it was a Goldfinch 5221, from the Yairi lineup, probably around 1990 or 1991. However, the sticker inside the body said made in Korea. The price ($180) seems too low for a Yairi build. I thought Yairi's were made in the motherland (Japan)? Could this actually be a Yairi?

This was my understanding also. Any chance you could get a pic of it?
