A top notch 12 string at a great price! Alvarez is one of the bang for the buck champs in quality acoustic instruments. Players love their top notch Yairi series. I've seldom seen one that didn't play and sound like a million bucks.  This professional series jumbo 12 string is no exception. Nice tone and quality at a great price. The top is solid Sitka spruce while the back and sides are Indian rosewood for good tone. Scalloped bracing adds to the good sound and projection of this instrument.  The mahogany neck features a wood bound rosewood fingerboard with a tasteful 12th fret diamond inlay. A rosewood bridge and sealed tuners keep it rock solid. Alvarez' System 600t MkII preamp and pickup system delivers natural tone when plugged in. It even comes equipped with an onboard chromatic tuner. Tasteful appointments include multiple binding, gold hardware and gorgeous abalone inlays. The finish is a matte satin violin sunburst that not only looks great but lets all of the tone out. A great 12 string for almost any musician.

This Alvarez plays and sounds great. The neck is straight and the action is good. The frets are fine. the pickup delivers a variety of useful tones. Everything works as it should. A good performer. This is a solid used guitar. It shows some playwear but would make most players happy. It shows light scratches, moderate wear on the pickguard and some light indents. It is stamped used on the back of the headstock. It comes in a used and very tight fitting aftermarket hardshell case.

This Alvarez is a very nice performing guitar at a great price. It looks to be no longer available new but listed for $1189 without a case a few years back. Here's one at a great price.
