Masterful Japanese Craftsmanship Meets Innovative Electronics in the Alvarez Yairi GYM72ce Acoustic-Electric Guitar.

The Alvarez Yairi GYM72ce cutaway grand auditorium acoustic-electric guitar provides serious musicians with an instrument of unparalleled quality and tone. Handcrafted in Japan by master luthiers with over 80 years of experience, the GYM72ce features an Adirondack spruce top and East Indian rosewood back and sides for a robust, complex sound with shimmering highs and a tight low end. The lightweight FST6 bracing system opens up the tone for impressive resonance and projection.

Premium Tonewoods Produce a Warm, Nuanced Sound

The GYM72ce's solid AAAA Adirondack spruce top and solid East Indian rosewood back and sides were carefully selected by Kazuo Yairi himself for their tonal qualities. The spruce top provides bright, clear highs while the rosewood back and sides add warmth and depth. Together, these tonewoods generate a full, balanced sound with rich overtones that inspire your creativity.

Innovative Bracing System Enhances Resonance

Alvarez Yairi's new FST6 bracing system is lighter than traditional bracing, allowing the GYM72ce's top to vibrate more freely. The result is a remarkably open, resonant sound with sustain for days. You'll hear—and feel—the guitar's tone blossom as you play. The FST6 bracing makes the GYM72ce highly responsive, giving you an intimate connection with the instrument.

Premium Appointments and Electronics Provide Versatility

The GYM72ce's ebony fingerboard, bridge and nut provide a smooth playing surface and crisp note articulation. Open-gear tuners keep the guitar in tune through heavy use. The L.R. Baggs HiFi pickup system captures the fullness of the guitar's acoustic tone when plugged in. With a three-band EQ and notch filter, you have control over the amplified sound for any live or studio situation.
