Here is an extremely rare 1983 Alvarez 5029 Ash Festival Dreadnought Acoustic. Features a fully bound solid Ash top, sides, and back, ebony bridge plate and rosewood fingerboard. Floral design tortoise shell pickguard, diamond mother of pearl fret markers and 'FESTIVAL' inlay at the 19th fret. The nut, bridge and bridge pins are solid brass. The tone is truly amazing, strong volume and well balanced percussive bell like tone with solid bass and clear mids. There are a couple of small cosmetic scratches as seen in the photo's but they do not affect the playability or sound of the guitar. This instrument is in extremely excellent condition considering it is 24 years old.


Frets are dressed and have no buzz to the 19th fret (didn't play past there) Truss rod adjustible from the soundhole and the neck is straight and true.


Labels on the inside are 'grey 60th aniversary 1922-1822 St Louis Music Supply Co. Adjusted at SLM Guitar Shop by 'TJK 3-83'' and square tan 'Eagle with Guitar - Alvarez Guitars, Model No. 5029 Ser. No. 59876 Inspected by_______, Made in Japan. Also stamped on the bracing just above the soundhole is '588'.


The case that is included is a new plywood hardshell with black tolex exterior and black plush interior and brass hardware.  It is in perfect condition except for the one slight tear on the bottom when I nicked it on my door.


Shipping will be $40 and I only ship to the lower 48 states.

I have an Alvarez 5029 that I bought in the eaarly 80s. it does not have a pick guard and doesn't look like there ever was a guard. I don't know much about the history of it and I 've never seen another one like it. I would be greatful for any information you can share. Thanks, Don Kerr dker20@aol.com
