Kazuo Yairi is one of the last luthiers who still builds guitars by hand.  This nice old Alvarez is an in-line decendent of his company.  It is the 5020S and is the Silver Anniversary Model which I believe makes it circa 1975.  It has a new set of Elixir strings and except for the usually pick scuffing on the pick board, a case scuff mark on the shoulder which polish will probably hide and a couple of small blemishes on the top of the head, this guitar is in mint condition.  It has a straight neck and close string clearance that makes it a pleasure to play.  The frets are like new.  The body and neck construction are mahogany -- the fingerboard is rosewood with pearl inlay and the bridge is ebony.  The sound hole decoration is not a decal.  This is a beautiful guitar that will become a collectible.  Well worth the opening bid.  Thanks for your interest.On Jun-29-07 at 12:59:39 PDT, seller added the following information:
A question from a concerned customer has challenged my age on this guitar  --  circa 1975.  I was basing this date on the Silver Anniversary of Yarir --  the original owner of Alvarez.  This was a mistake.  The Silver Anniversary model according to the St. Louis Music Company who now owns Alvarez, is bsed on the start up of Alvarez.  This guitar is a 1991 or 1992 mid-line model that retailed for $600.00 when it came out at that time.  It was a popular guitar used by many artists for stage performances -- was seldom used in the recording studio.  I hope this answers questions others of you may have had.  It is a nice instrument, just not as old as I had originally listed.  Still worth the opening bid.  Sorry for any inconvenience.
