Description

Here's a classical Alvarez Yairi CY130 guitar in Brazilian Rosewood and Red Cedar. This instrument, crafted in 1978 is a great workhorse nylon string for the gigging or woodshedding musician. This would be an excellent guitar to amplify and use for weddings, travel, etc. as it offers great tone and playability at a wonderful value.

Alvarez Yairi guitars are known in the industry as workhorse guitars that are stable and reliable with great tone and playability. This one is proof of the craftsmanship as it is 31 years old and still plays like a new guitar. This is a great gigging instrument for the guitarist playing in a group or at weddings, etc. Would make a good guitar for Brazilian music as well.
 
I was pleasantly surprised at how good this guitar sounds. The balance is even and the trebles are clear. It has a nice strong voice and would be a great guitar for any beginning classical player or for a steel string player who wants a decent nylon without spending a bunch of money. This is a Japanese-made guitar and the quality is top notch.
