    Default Ariana AW-65

    I have this pretty rare guitar made by some lesser known company called Ariana. I don't think this company even exists anymore. My guitar model name is AW-65 and this guitar and the company is almost impossible to find and I know just little about it. Do any of u guys know anything about this company or the guitar's value?

    I have several Ehdwuld branded guitars

    Could this be a rare Vanity Chinese build that someone commissioned for the daughter named Ariana?

    Sorry for not getting back to you. I was pretty busy these days but here are some pics of my guitar. Not the best picture quality as you can see.

    Looks like something Japanese or Korean from the mid/late 70s to maybe late 80s. The hardware doesn't look like any of the more recent Chinese guitars I've seen.

    What does the sticker on the back of the headstock say?

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

    The sticker says 'Made in Indonesia' and the guitar is from 1995 - 1996. I searched it up on the Blue book of Guitar Values a while ago and that's the manufacturing date. Though it still didn't say much about it.

    Looks like early ones were Japanese, later ones ('80s-early '90s) were Korean made

    Not much out there on them
