Alvarez Yairi proudly announces the release of four new instruments for 2007. Handcrafted and loaded with professional features, these new Yairi models are the latest creations from the shop of legendary luthier Kazuo Yairi.
The FYM96C cutaway folk guitar features a solid ovangkol back and sides and a distressed solid spruce top, which offers superior tone and projection. The body is exquisitely bound in tortoise/herringbone. FYM96C's abalone rosette and antique gold die-cast tuners round out the aesthetics, and the included System 600T MKII electronics keep you superbly connected. (MSRP: $2,999)
For those who prefer a jumbo cutaway, the JYM86 is an excellent choice with its solid flamed maple back and sides. The solid spruce top features an abalone rosette and our new gloss - light amber tint finish. Our classic ivoroid multilayer binding and finest gold die-cast tuners add to the JYM86's stunning good looks. (MSRP: $2,399) Also available in a cutaway tobacco sunburst finish, the JYM86C TS features Alvarez System 600T MKII electronics. (MSRP: $2,999)
The cutaway WY1M folk guitar features highly figured flamed maple everywhere you look. An extremely articulate instrument, the WY1M was designed especially for fingerpicking and recording applications.
