1970 71 Alvarez Guitar Dove model 5024 Collector Item
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2006-09-12)
Price : US $409
This is a 1970-71 Alvarez 5024 Dove in very good condition. Mahogany back and sides (stained cherry) with a spruce top make this guitar sound like a $1,000+ guitar. Mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard with twinparallelogram inlays plays great with very smooth and easy action. Weightis 4 lbs. 12 oz. Nut width is 1 3/4'', Scale is 25 1/8''.
<p> Alvarez made this guitar as a copy of the Gibson Dove and consequently, were sued by Gibson so they had to change the model. This makes this model a collectors piece. A recent mint 5024 went for $755 here on eBay.
<p> I am the original owner and have never found a better sounding guitar for under $1500. It also has a great playing neck which make it easy to play and pick.
<p> It is used however. You can see some of the nicks and dents in the pictures.
<p> Shipping is $55 via insured UPS in the US. A semi-hard case is included.
This guitar is sold (sold on 2006-09-12)
