Value of 1980 Alvarez Yairi Dy-75

I have posted this elsewhere so pardon the double post.  I am thinking of selling my 1980 Alvarez Yairi and wonder about a fair market value.  It's a DY-75 with Barcus Berry hot dots installed.  So,…Continue

Hello All,

I just purchased a Alvarez AP-66SB Parlor size guitar. I really like this little strumbox!! All Mahogany construction, clean build, beautiful finish, plays well and sounds excellent. IMO a finer instrument of this size and price point does not exist. Great job Alvarez!!

Just wanted to say I've spent a lot of time over the last few weeks playing a batch of Alvarez "Artist Series" guitars at their new showroom. Some nice instruments there for sure. I ended up taking the AP66SB mahogany parlour home with me. They're also bringing in the ARD70 Slope Shoulder 12 fret dred which I am very interested to see and play and hear...

I've never owned an Alvarez before but an entertaining the idea of getting an Alvarez AP710. Anyone have any words of wisdom? Pro/cons?

Excuse the intrusion... I've found what looks like a great deal on a Alvarez AD90SCK Artist Series guitar.  Was wondering if any of you current Alvarez folks care to comment on that model.  For $375 appears to be a good deal, but I don't know much about them.  I'm looking for an alternative to using my HD-28 for stage work.  Any info will be appreciated.

Has anyone ever checked out the Baritone that's currenty on sale?

Comment by Don Bartenstein on July 29, 2012 at 7:56am

Yes, I did install the I-Beam.  Loving it!  Everywhere I play out, other players comment on the fine tone of the 5022/Baggs combo.
