  • Alvarez 5039's

    Just got one of these from ebay and contrary to what I have read, the top definitely appears to be laminated. I have 2-5023's, a 5045 and those tops are obviously solid. Anyone else have a 5039 BiCentennial? Tom Kruskza at SLM has no pertinent info.

    According to this it's a solid sitka spruce top. Nice looking guitar, BTW. Congratulations.

    Three Dreads......2 Martins and 1 YamahaA fiddle, a mando, a uke, eight harmonicas, a Zoom H2, a Panasonic recorder, coupla penny whistles, an Italian made Titano accordion, three handguns, at least a dozen chess sets, more power tools than Bob Vila, and one old Westclox "Big Ben" wind-up alarm clock that still works! Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention my ocarina and maracas.

      I have an Alvarez 5039, #509, slightly modified, but in very good condition.  I was wondering what you consider the value to be after having purchased one?
