String Configuration: 6 String Body Type: Dreadnaught

Up for sale is an 1979 Alvarez Yairi DY-77 Canon in Excellent shape. Minor pick rash and light scratches as you would expect from a 30 year old guitar, but nothing major, nothing through the finish. There is a small hazing patch on the back of the neck, doubtless due to the infamous black foam from the old guitar stands. This guitar was purchased 5 years ago from the original owner. Five years before that, he had noticed some finish separation at the neck/body, and had unable to determine whether it was a finish problem alone, he paid to have it professionally reset. It hasn't moved a micron in the last 5 years he owned it, or the 5 years that I've owned it. I wouldn't mention it except its only fair to do so, non-issue or not. ( I have 100% feedback for a reason). This guitar thunders, with big, bright, evenly matched sound. This one has an under saddle pickup/endpin jack, which works flawlessly. Yairi's as you are likely aware, are hand made, and play, sound, and feel like it. This is a player's guitar that will really let you stretch your ability. I own Five (Soon to be Four) Yairi's, and I would buy each and every one of them, including this one, again and again. I love this guitar, but I have new gear I have to purchase, and must cut deep to do it, otherwise I would not be selling one of my children. Neck is straight, frets in excellent shape. Comes with original hardshell case, great shape, all latches functional.  I will be posting some additional pictures tomorrow, and if you need or want additional shots, just email me. No zero feedback bidders, Domestic US only as listed, No PO Boxes. Shipped exceptionally well packed to verified addresses only. Email with questions. All Sales Final.
