Alvarez Acoustic Guitar - Model 5043
Up for auction is a 1970's Alvarez Acoustic Guitar, model 5043, serial # 47271. I have discovered through research that Alvarez's serial #'s aren't too accurate because they were manufactured in different plants in Japan. Several features that help date this guitar: 1) the tapestry-like pattern around the sound hole, 2) the adjustable saddle in the bridge, and 3) the detailed inlay on the back.
This guitar has a deep, rich tone and booming volume. The action is easy and fast. The neck is straight and so comfortable. The frets are in very good condition as well. The neck is mahogany, the top is spruce, and the back and sides appear to be walnut. Check out the ornate inlay on the back! There are some minor scratches on the top, back and sides, and a small dent on the top and the neck. There is also some blushing in the finish on the sides and on the back. But all in all, this is a great vintage guitar, and the sound more than makes up for any physical flaws.
I recommend that you do a little internet research on this model and read the reviews. This guitar has the sound quality and the feel of the really expensive guitars.
The guitar will be packed securely for shipping. It comes in a foam lined economy case.
