1973 Alvarez-Yairi 5037 Classical
Brazilian RW -
The 70's produced great guitars from K. Yairi, and this is a rare gem, even if the "classical guitar snobs" would turn their noses up on it. If you search 5037 you will find the subsequent 12-string model. Cedar top; OHSC; has some player wear; this is a beautiful guitar with book-matched laminated rosewood (it looks alot like my old '68 Martin 00-21 that had Brazilian back and sides); whatever the wood is, it is a great player with wonderful sound as well; ebony fingerboard, mahogany neck with ebony back-stripe; RW binding with maple purfling; this is really an awesome guitar! This model evolved to the CY-140 (also top of line from Yairi) in 1974.
Price: $1450 (USD)
