Japanese Artisanship Meets Innovative Design in the Alvarez Yairi GYM74ce.

Crafted by master luthiers in Japan, the Alvarez Yairi GYM74ce cutaway grand auditorium acoustic-electric guitar provides an unparalleled playing experience for discerning musicians. Featuring a solid Californian redwood top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides, this guitar produces a robust yet balanced tone with shimmering highs, rich mids and tight low end. The FST6 bracing allows the top to vibrate freely, resulting in impressive resonance and sustain.

Premium Tonewoods for Superior Sound

The rare, vintage redwood top is lightweight yet durable, imparting a clear, articulate sound with airy trebles. Paired with Indian rosewood, renowned for its warmth and projection, you'll achieve a dynamic tonal range suited for any style. The dovetail neck joint and scalloped bracing showcase expert Japanese craftsmanship, allowing the woods to reach their full tonal potential.

Playability and Comfort

The slim mahogany neck and 12" radius ebony fingerboard provide a comfortable playing surface for complex chords and single-note lines. Smooth fret ends and a bone nut and saddle add to the luxurious feel. The cutaway body offers easy access to the higher frets, ideal for lead playing.

Pluggged-in Performance

The discreet L.R. Baggs Hi-Fi system captures the guitar's natural tone when plugged in. Featuring volume and tone controls, you can adjust the output and EQ to match the venue. The Element pickup uses dual condenser mics to reproduce the nuances of your playing.

Timeless Construction

From the abalone soundhole rosette and binding to the gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, every detail of the GYM74ce is meticulously executed. The Alvarez and Yairi insignia on the headstock signify a legacy of guitar-making mastery.
