Price : US $ 600
Alvarez-Yairi DY76 12 string acoustic. First and foremost, this is a player's guitar. There are some cosmetic blemishes on the soundboard, two dings that are noticeable. It also has some humidity cracking and some dings/scratches. The back and sides have very minor scratches, and the back of the headstock shows some minor wear, and that's it for the issues!
Structurally, the guitar is a tank. It was just checked over and is in great, sturdy condition.
I believe it has a solid Canadian spruce top and laminated rosewood back, sides, and neck. The number on the heel block is 509406. After a little searching I believe it to from 1975 as this chart is even up on the Alvarez website: http://yairiluvr.wordpress.com/ (you will have to scroll down a bit to find it)
But if I'm reading it wrong someone please let me know!
The sound this guitar produces is amazing. The woods have aged nicely (it's always been kept humidified in its case as long as I've owned it, while I'm not playing it of course), the notes ring out like you wouldn't believe! It has big bass tones, and smooth, clear ringing trebles. The twelve string effect on a guitar this nice is just pure magic, it really sounds incredible.
The guitar will ship with an older hard-shell case. The case is extremely sturdy, and all latches work as they should, but the strap that keeps the case from opening all the way is broken, so it does open up all the way. The guitar could definitely use a new set of strings. Will be fully insured for shipment. Let me know if you have any questions. Asking $600 or best ofer
