Masterfully Handcrafted in Japan, This Dreadnought Unleashes Robust Tones with New Bracing.

The Alvarez Yairi DYM74 dreadnought acoustic guitar transports you to the picturesque hills of Kani, Japan, where master luthiers have been handcrafting premium instruments for over 80 years. Constructed with all-solid tonewoods and featuring the innovative FST6 bracing system, this guitar produces a robust, open tone with rich overtones that inspire you to play for hours.

Resonant Vintage Redwood Top

The DYM74's solid AAA vintage Californian redwood top provides a bright, projecting voice with complex overtones. Redwood is prized for its ability to age well and open up over time, delivering vintage tone from day one. Combined with solid Indian rosewood back and sides, the redwood top generates a balanced acoustic voice with articulate highs, warm mids and tight low end.

Premium Components for Flawless Playability

The DYM74's solid ebony fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle and open-gear tuners are all top-shelf components selected for their ability to transfer string vibration efficiently. The mahogany neck has a comfortable rounded C shape and 25.5" scale length. These high-quality parts work together to provide buttery playability so you can focus on making music.

Innovative Bracing System Produces Open Tone

Alvarez Yairi's FST6 bracing system is lighter than traditional bracing, allowing the top to vibrate more freely. This innovative design broadens the DYM74's tonal palette and enhances bass and treble response. Notes ring out clearly and fully, with impressive sustain and harmonic complexity. The open, resonant tone inspires you to play dynamically and expressively.

Timeless Design and Premium Appointments

With its classic dreadnought body, elegant wood binding and rosette and gloss lacquer finish, the DYM74 has an appearance that matches its inspiring tone. Gold open-gear tuners, an ebony bridge and endpin and an abalone and mother-of-pearl logo inlay complete the upscale look. A guitar as special as the DYM74 deserves to be an heirloom to pass on to future generations of players.
