Alvarez Yairi Dym60hd Masterworks Dreadnought Adirondack Acoustic Guitar Natural


Alvarez Yairi Dym60hd Masterworks Dreadnought Adirondack Acoustic Guitar Natural


$2699


The Yairi DYM60HD Masterworks Dreadnought Adirondack acoustic guitar has a solid, vintage Honduran mahogany body that has been paired with AAAA Adirondack spruce. Sonically, it's incredibly full and powerful with huge clear bass and mids. Theyre almost intuitive in the way they respond, and captivating in the way they draw the player in and take them away. You will lose hours in your day playing one of these amazing instruments.<br><br>The Yairi DYM60HD Masterworks does everything youd expect from a correctly designed dreadnought and more. Made from AAAA North American Adirondack spruce, vintage Honduran mahogany (naturally seasoned for 50 years) and ebony components, this guitar has incredible genes. The quality and seasoning of these woods help to make this guitar very light in weight. This helps in several ways when it comes to tone. The guitar is alive and extremely responsive. The added stiffness of the Adirondack helps in creating more energy, and when paired with the mahogany, generates a stunning warm and open voice with powerful, clear bass and middle frequencies. The trebles are a little darker than Alvarez's rosewood guitars and have roundness to them, plus a bell-like quality. <br><br>Drive the Yairi DYM60HD Masterworks Dreadnought as hard as you wish and it will keep responding, even to extremely heavy strumming or flatpicking. Approach the guitar with a lighter attack or fingerstyle playing and its instant response is even more apparent. The speed of which the DYM answers you is instantaneous. <br><br>The guitar has custom, hand-cut FST2 bracing which is a forward shifted X, and the top is expertly tuned during the carving of this system. The one-piece mahogany neck has been spoke shaved by hand and the other appointments include the sublimely accurate Gotoh 510 tuners, bone saddle and nut, flawless, thin poly finish and subtle Paua abalone and mother-of-pearl inlays. <br><br><strong>The Story of How It Came To Be</strong><br<ul><li>AAAA solid Adirondack spruce top with seasoned solid Honduran mahogany body</li><li>One-piece mahogany neck with semi-gloss finish, ebony fingerboard</li><li>Assymetrical scalloped tone bars</li><li>Natural gloss top, body finish, semi-gloss neck finish</li><li>12th fret paua inlay</li><li>D'Addario EXP217 strings</li><li>Dovetail neck joint</li><li>Ebony direct coupled bridge</li></ul>

Alvarez Yairi Fym66hd Masterworks Om Honduran Mahogany Natural


Alvarez Yairi Fym66hd Masterworks Om Honduran Mahogany Natural


$2399


This Yairi FYM66HD Masterworks OM Honduran Mahogany acoustic is a stunning little guitar made from old-growth Honduran mahogany which has been naturally seasoning for 50 years in the perfect climate of Kani, Japan. The Yairi FYM66HD Masterworks OM Honduran Mahogany is rich and warm sounding with wonderful strong mids and round, bell like trebles. <br><br>The guitar itself is very light in weight due to the quality of the wood and thin finish; you feel it resonating as it instantly responds to your requests. Its projection is open and its volume for an OM body size is loud. Being a Yairi its intonation is incredible and the all-around spec of the guitar is of the highest level with the amazing Gotoh 510 tuners and ebony bridge, fingerboard and headstock veneer.<br><br><strong>How They Came To Be</strong><br>This magical line of Yairi Masterworks guitars came about, almost by accident, as Alvarez-Yairi designers were detailing the specs of a guitar for a wonderful player named Jack Pearson. It was thought that Adirondack spruce paired with Honduran mahogany would be the best combination needed for Jacks tonal requests.<br><br>Mr. Yairi amassed an incredible amount of tonewood throughout his life and although most is in or around the factory, some was stored on a piece of land he owned some miles away. The Alvarez team would go and see the wood on every trip to Kani, it became a ritual after lunch, but because most of the supply had darkened due to the elements making them unsure what all of it was. Looking back now, Mr. Yairi may have been thinking, “One day they will realize what is in here.”<br><br>Well that day came. Suspecting that Mr. Yairi had a supply of Honduran mahogany on his piece of land they travelled there again, and what they found in terms of tonewood was pure gold; perfectly conditioned billets of old growth Honduran mahogany that had been naturally seasoning for around 50 yearsunbelievable.<br><br>Had Alvarez's team not discussed Honduran mahogany<ul><li>One-piece mahogany neck</li><li>Dovetail neck joint: Dovetail</li><li>Direct coupled ebony bridge</li><li>Paua abalone and mother-of-pearl inlays</li><li>Ivoroid binding</li><li>Ebony bridge pins </li><li>DAddario EXP16 strings</li></ul>

Gloss finish with tobacco sunburst.The top is bound in ivoroid and features a double circle rosette around the centered sound hole. The neck is made of mahogany and is attached to the body with a dovetail joint set at the 14th fret. As soon as you lift this guitar out of the wood frame case it comes with, its quality is evident. The detail, the balance and the stunning beauty of the woods instills a great sense of appreciation for the workmanship and design. It features side dots for player orientation, and a lovely custom inlay at the 12th fret. It is comfortable to wear and sounds great acoustically.The onboard L.R. Baggs Stagepro Element is a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers battery access and a full chromatic tuner that is hidden beneath the control panel to maintain a clean, classy look.
