This auction is for an Alvarez Model 5040 Koa Dreadnaught Acoustic Guitar. I don't know a lot about this guitar, but there is one thing I know; it sounds terrific, and plays as easy as an electric. This Alvarez has been a very pleasant surprise; it has great volume, great warm tone, and the notes are as clear as guitars costing thiousands. One of the cleanest sounds & best voices that I've heard lately. These 5040 models are very rare; about three per year come up for sale. The reason is, when collectors acquire one, they tend to hold on to them. The Hawaiian Koa is ''bookmatched'', and it is absolutely beautiful! The ''sweet smell'' that comes from the guitar is worth owning one; it's almost like being there. The Koa wood is becoming more rare all the time. The inlays are understated & beautifully done. The body binding is gem grade Tortoiseshell; the same as on the Bob Weir Koa models. The case came with the guitar, and is in excellent condition. I don't know the guitar's date of manufacture, but I believe it was in the late nineties. You don't have to pay thousands of dollars to own a Koa guitar when you can get a great deal on one right here. The winner of this one will be extremely happy!!
The guitar is in Excellent Plus Condition!! I cannot find anything on the guitar, anyplace! The only indications that it has ever been played, are a few ''angel hair'' brush marks on the pickguard; and that's it! A super quality guitar, that has only been played a few ho
