This acoustic Alvarez Yairi is brand new. It is labeled as B-Stock due to a subtle factory blem. It is a small spot to the right of the bridge where the finish is slightly lighter. You can’t feel it, and it’s not a ding, it’s just a small finish mark. You can only see it at certain angles and it’s very subtle but we wanted to point it out! The guitar has been discounted $100 due to this!
The Yairi factory is in the small town of Kani, in the hills north of Nagoya, Japan. Here they have been making guitars for 80 years. The late Kazuo Yairi was one of the finest and most successful luthiers of our time and helped design and make Alvarez-Yairi guitars for nearly 50 years.
The pride within the factory is immediately evident. Floors are made of mahogany, some walls are rosewood tongue and groove, and furniture is hand carved by the luthiers. The amount of naturally seasoned tone wood is legendary and the production line marries time honored handmade craftsmanship with modern day design and processes.
Every neck is spoke shaved by hand, braces are carved and tops are tuned to perfection, attention to detail and quality of the build is impeccable. Alvarez Yairi guitars are beautifully presented, wonderful sounding, luthier-made instruments, which in our opinion are some of the finest guitars in today’s market.
