Hi everyone

I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of an Arirang Guitar. I was recently given this guitar its very old but is still in good condition. I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of the brand before and could tell me anything about it?

Here are some photos I took:

I couldn't find anything on Arirang guitars besides the fact that a lot of people find them in pawn shops and they're pretty good guitars. Other than that, I looked up the word "Arirang" on Wiki and here's what I got...

"Arirang" is arguably the most popular and best-known Korean folk song, both inside and outside Korea. Arirang is an ancient native Korean word with no direct modern meaning. 'Ari' means "beautiful" (For example 아리따운 native Korean word means "beautiful", "lovely", "charming") 'Rang' can mean "dear". Because of those words, arirang could be interpreted to mean "beautiful dear". Arirang is a mountain in Korea"

I guess it's Korean...

Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

It is always a bad sign when your guitar is trying so hard to pretend to be another specific guitar model. This guitar clearly wants to be a Gibson Hummingbird when it grows up.
Death to Ovation haters!

That is what got me interested to know where it came from because I noticed that it does have the same scratch plate as a gibson hummingbird. It was my girlfriends fathers first guitar and is probably over 20 years old but is still really good. Thanks for the replys
