Price : US $577.00
You're looking at a 1990 Alvarez Yairi DY 75 acoustic, hand-made in Japan. There has never been a pick up installed (no patched up holes)...The label inside says: Alvarez by Kazuo Yairi Serial # 43013, Model DY 75 DCB 1990.
There are two pegs for attaching a strap, one in the usual place and one in the front of the body, to be used instead of tying the strap around the head.
I bought this guitar about 4-5 years ago with the idea of sitting in the back yard to play it. ( I have an expensive 1971 Martin D-35 also) I have not used it outside, and when inside, guess which guitar I go for? If you said the Martin, you're right. Not to minimize the great tone of this guitar, though. I used it for flat-picking BLUEGRASS. Has rosewood back and sides, spruce top etc. I think the rosewood sides are laminated, not solid. It is not as heavy as my Martin....Shows very minor signs of wear.
Comes tuned with Martin strings and an almost NEW hardshell case, but it is not an expensive case.
Any questions, please call Roger..201-828-5707 or email me, and thanks for looking.
