What is my 1970's Aria HF, modle 9420, solid top, tiger maple, acoustic guitar, ec, worth?
Hi, thanks for your question!This is an Asian guitar and if it was made before the mid-1970's then it won't have a serial number on it. This was a lower end guitar as far as construction is considered so the price will take that into consideration. Retail these are selling used for between $200-$350; private sale value would have these between $100 and $200. Assuming yours is in excellent condition you can aim towards the high side of that figure. Best wishes!
Sn is 385537, and what about being of tiger maple construction?
Thanks for your reply. Serial numbers were a bit strange with this company. Usually, the first digit would indicate the year made, but it would obviously recycle after each decade. Since you know it was built in the 1970's then the serial would date it to 1973. The Tiger Maple does help value and set it apart from others which is why I gave the value range above. I've seen some selling for less than $100, so you should be comfortable in the $100-$200 range with tiger maple. If you're selling, try starting out at the high end, or closer to $300--doesn't hurt to try! If it sits for too long you may adjust the price down. Best wishes!
I have not seen any models on-line that are HF 9420. This guitar is in mint condition.
Do you have a photo of it?

I sent a craigslist link. I hope you can access it....
Hi, I do not see any link. Please copy and paste it here
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX that time. It looks like you have it priced right and it appears to be in beautiful condition. I do stand by my original range for this guitar, especially considering age. I saw another one just like yours that sold for $80, so just keep in mind you may need to be flexible if it takes a while to sell. Best wishes!
