This is a great-sounding guitar from Kazuo Yairi, one of the most respected Japanese luthiers of the twentieth century, who helped design and make Alvarez-Yairi guitars for nearly 50 years. Despite some scuffs and dings in the finish, the guitar is in excellent playing condition with no damage or repairs. It plays and sounds incredibly good and has a typical cedar sound - each note having a rich layer of overtones, giving it a big, warm sound. The action is set very comfortably, and helps make this an overall very enjoyable guitar for player and audience alike.
