Shiro Arai Co. Most guitars produced by Arai such as the Aria Diamonds not to be confused with the Aria Pro II Diamonds , Lyle, Conrad, Maxi-Tone, Japanese Epiphone, Univox, and the other pre guitars often had serial numbers usually on the neck plate I imagine so dealers could track warranty, etc. Unfortunately the number was arbitrary and had little to do with when the guitar was produced. After Arai joined forces with Matsumoku, the serial numbers began to have some bearing on the guitar’s production year and rank in production sequence. Serial numbers on these guitars were arbitrary numbers and did not indicate date of manufacture. When dating these guitars only ballpark ranges is possible. One tip is the type of pickups. Guitars produced by Matsumoku Nearly all guitars produced by Matsumoku beginning sometime late or early bore serial numbers indicating the year and possibly production sequence. A small number of guitars produced had serials preceeded by a letter, but as to what the letter inidicated is yet a mystery and one can only guess without concrete evidence. I have seen both 6 and 7 digit serial numbers excluding the letter if it is present.

It appears the Diamond series was gone by so your instrument was likely just a one year release, hence very little info available. If you are not familiar with the Aria Archive, you can check it out here.
