This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-01-15)
Price : US $500
This wonderful guitar was made in Japan by Kazuo Yairi. This Alvarez FY-40 was made in 1997. This is one outstanding guitar. All you need to do is go online and do some research on Yairi and you will understand how these fine instruments are made and why they are one of the best guitars that you will ever own.
This guitar plays and sounds incredible. I only have to get rid of this guitar becuase I bought a Martin and have to sell this one to fund it. I was really trying to find a way to keep this guitar but my wife says it has to go.
It has a K&K mini-transducer pickup under the bridge. You can research these pickups and find lots of info on them. It sounds excellent plugged in. The action is very low and it plays fast.
There is a slight problem on the bottom by the end pin where you plug it in. Someone, before I purchased it, must have dropped it on the bottom because there is a quarter-sized dent (see picture). It is very slightly pushed in and is mostly unnoticed unless you are really looking for it. I took it in to a professional luthier to have it looked at. He put a mirror inside and said there was absolutely no damage to the guitar at all except for what you see on the outside. He said he would probably leave it the way it is. Other than that it has the usual minor nicks and scratches from everyday use.
Again, this is a great guitar and I would like nothing more than to keep but it has to go. It comes with a standard black hard case. Please feel free to email questions as needed.
