There's No Substitute For Quality

By SLO&ezdoesit

The workmanship is beautiful. All solid woods. Fretting and playability is crisp and clear. Although I'm not a professional, this guitar is how I unwind after work. I wish I'd bought it forty years ago. The neck is somewhat more narrow than some 12-strings and is much easier to bar chord (all the way up the neck). At the same time, finger picking is smooth and relaxed. No tangles. I shopped for a long time and played many top of the line quality models before choosing my Alvarez MD8012. I had decided that in making my selection, the playability would be the deciding factor for my selection; and would ignore the brand, cost, and cosmetics. This guitar has it all. I knew that it would be mine the moment I picked it up and played it. It was like putting on a really comfortable pair shoes.

Better than expected

By Barn Owl

from Silverthorne, Co

I swore I wouldn't buy another guitar without playing it first, but the nearest music store is 100 miles away, and my Alvarez/Yairi DY40 is my favorite 6 string. The positive reviews, the Alvarez name, and the price convinced me to give it a try. I knew this wasn't a Yairi, but Chinese guitars have been getting good reviews lately.I couldn't be more impressed. This guitar is flawless.Looks great, sounds great, plays great. Even the case is beautiful. Obviously, the people that made this guitar take great pride in their work.
