Alvarez Yairi acoustic guitars are made in a stubbornly old-fashioned workshop, hidden in the still beauty of the Japanese mountains in the
village of Gifu — far from the computerized factories of high-volume guitar manufacturers. In fact, when other guitar companies were building
even larger factories, Kazuo Yairi, was buying wood. When other makers moved to simpler techniques, Yairi remained resolute in honoring
the slower, classic construction methods like the labor intensive dovetail neck joint and hand shaped bracing. It is the fruit of these
time-honored techniques that create the exquisite instruments that are rare treasures to hold and to hear, with the Alvarez Yairi hallmark of
sweetness and balance that is world renowned as “the Yairi sound.“
You’ve heard the boomy overtones, the intensely annoying feedback and the ear-splitting treble range that occurs when guitars that haven’t
been designed for amplification are amplified. That’s why you’ll more than appreciate the Yairi Virtuoso.
This is a Yairi handmade Bob Weir
signature series acoustic/electric guitar which features a fabulous sounding cut-a-way orchestra/folk sized body style available in a variety of finish colors
on a solid Cedar top with hand carved scalloped bracing and Rosewood back & sides. This acoustic/electric guitar also has the remarkable
System 600T Mark II preamp system which features a built-in chromatic tuner, multiband EQ with sweepable mid frequency adjustment, special notch filter to
control feedback, auxiliary input mix adjustment and phase switch.
Other highlights include Maple/Herringbone or Abalone body bindings (see pictures), Abalone soundhole rosette inlay, a 20 fret Ebony Fingerboard with 12th
fret diagonal inlay, Ebony Direct Coupled® bridge, clear pickguard and a Yairi lifetime warranty. The
Yairi Deluxe Hardcase is included. Each guitar we sell is set-up by our shop, so we unconditionally
guarantee your satisfaction with this guitar.
