This is a handmade Alvarez Biphonic 5084. Little is found about this guitar. Some call it a Yairi some say Wildwood project. All I know is that it is amazing sounding and plays like butter. It has split pickups and seperate controlls for the top three or bottom three strings. It is a rare handmade vintage Alvarez from c.1984 +/-.

I own this model, it\'s not hand made, all laminate, mahogany back/sides, spruce top. That said, the neck plays well, the action is low. I have been playing this guitar since I bought it new in 1987.

I have the same guitar as pictured. I purchased it to keep in my recording studio as a back up and something to pluck on. I've had it in storage since '86 when I sold the studio. Dug it out tonight, tuned it and can't put it down. Can't wait to re-string it tomorrow. The serial number on mine is 850068. I too would like to find more info. Awesome sound... firstname.lastname@example.org
