1977 Alvarez Yairi DY 78 Tri Back
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-19)
Price : US $1,641.
Here I have up for auction a 1977 DY78 Yairi Tri Back in what I have to call near mint condition if not 99%. Made in Japan. All of the case candy that came with it new is still in the original case. In fact this one was obtained from the original owner. This is a very beautiful piece and is also a very nice player. It has been very well cared for. If you are a collector this is the one for you. If you want to play it, this is the one for you. It does play and sound great. This piece is virtually scratch free. The top is a very nice grade of spruce, the back is rosewood with a section of mahogany in the middle. Sides are rosewood. There is herringbone and wood binding. Also the pickguard is made from some exotic wood. This is one of the high end Yairi's, and to find one in this condition has to be next to impossible. Feel free to ask questions, if you are looking then I assume you already know a little about these, so I will let the pics speak for themselves. PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU HAVE ZERO OR LESS THAN 5 FEEDBACK SCORE. No reserve, good luck bidding.

I bought this guitar in 1977. It is a great instrument with an excellent sound and tone which improves with time. The narrow neck allows me to play for hours. This is a great guitar which, sorry for you, I will never sell. This is the only acoustic I have and I have no desire to buy another
