Alvarez Law Suit Dove Model Not 5024 but 5025???

 

Alvarez "Law Suit" Dove with unique model number 5025, there may be more out there but my research has not turned one up! I contacted Tom K. with the St. Louis Music Co. that originally would have sold this guitar and his comments were "there are no records of this 5025 Dove model in any archival Alvarez literature, and sales records from that time are no longer available. Our best guess is that a shipment arrived with the wrong model number and the St. Louis Music Supply sales team elected to sell them as a parallel model to the 5024".

 When I ask if he could date the guitar his comments were "the tags you mention, with the West Pine address, put it 1971 or earlier. The first Alvarez hit the stores in 1965, with 1967 being the year they started appearing in quantity. There are no date codes in these old serial numbers that we are aware of, and no records either".

That is all the expert advise I have been able to gather. For most of you there is little I can tell you and the pictures tell a better story, I know this Dove was well used but not abused. As you can see the dove tail and a lot of the floral pattern has been worn off from playing.

I can only assume the hard case is original, after purchasing I found the contents pictured stored in the case. One of the items found and I thought was rare to still exist was the original store shelf tag that has the exact same model and serial numbers as the tag on the inside the guitar.

Please look at the pictures carefully, I tried to make issues as clear as possible. It is not in the wood but the finish above and below the bridge is cracked, I have found this to be true for most of these I have found to view. Also looking at the bridge you can see a small glossy spot, I believe this was a small splinter in the wood and someone may have coated it with finger nail polish or something.

I am not a professional and know little about these guitars, I have said about all I know and will leave it up to people who do know!
