Here are some photos of a rarely seen guitar from the Daion guitar company,a Japanese maker that was around in the late 70's to early 80's. Many of their model are variations on the classic parlor,dreadnought and jumbo designs. As you can see,the '81 Caribou is something a bit different! This model is part of the "year series",thus the '81 is actually part of the model name. If you would like to learn more about this little known guitar company,there's a whole website dedicated to it here: http://daionguitar.com/acoustic.php Enjoy!
