Gloss finish acoustic-electric with cedar top.
A wonderful performance guitar or just for playing for pleasure, the Alvarez Yairi WY1, from the Bob Weir Series AC/EL Folk line, is a medium-depth acoustic guitar with a single cutaway and select tonewoods, most notably a select AA Western red cedar top. The grain on these tops is very close and even, and in concert with the rosewood back and sides, the overall appearance of this instrument is striking. 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. The three-band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions. The system includes the Element pickup and pre-wired strapjack.
