About This Listing

THIS ONE IS KILLER!! SET UP IS PHENOMENAL!

THE SOUND IS ONE OF THE BEST SOUNDING YAIRI'S I HAVE OFFERED AND WILL BLOW YOU AWAY AND ANY GUITAR IN THE ROOM!

An acoustic guitar from Tim's Acoustics means you get more than just someone's old guitar, you get a guitar that we spend a lot of time with.
Making sure you get a guitar that has been brought back, to as close as possible, to its original playing condition, most of the time even better. This one has had the frets leveled, re-crowned and polished. New compensated bone saddle and Bone w/Abalone dot pins,To say the least.

1978 ALVAREZ by K. YAIRI DY-74S w/OHSC!

MADE IN JAPAN! ORIGINAL CASE WAS MADE IN THE USA(same co. that made martin cases that era)

SIMPLY THE BEST YEARS FOR YAIRI WAS THE EARLY TO LATE 70'S!

YAIRI'S OF THIS EARLY NATURE WILL NEVER BE MADE AGAIN, WE LOST K. YAIRI A FEW YEARS BACK AND AS WITH ANY LOSS OF A GREAT CRAFTSMAN, HIS CRAFT SOARS IN DESIRABILITY AND VALUE!-DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!

THE EARLY YEARS IS WHEN YAIRI WAS YOUNGER HIS ATTENTION TO DETAIL WAS INCREDIBLE!

THE 70'S DREAD'S HAD THE MARTIN STYLE HEADSTOCK WITH A HAND CARVED VOLUTE AND THE NECKS WERE ALL SHAPED BY HAND AS WELL.

YAIRI AGED AND AIR DRIED ALL HIS OWN EXOTIC WOODS AT HIS SHOP'S STORAGE AREA HIGH IN THE JAPAN HILLS. PERFECT CLIMATE FOR THE PROCESS HE DEVELOPED.

SIMPLY WATCH THE YAIRI FACTORY TOURS ON YOUTUBE (PART 1 & 2, LINK ON THIS PAGE BELOW) AND BE AMAZED AS I WAS, ON THE COMPLETE HANDS ON, SMALL OPERATION OF ARTIST'S DOING THEIR CRAFT!

-SPRUCE TOP, WELLINGTON ROSEWOOD BACK AND SIDES, EBONY FRET BOARD AND EBONIZED BRIDGE.

-NEW COMPENSATED HAND CARVED BONE SADDLE!

-COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL, VINTAGE USA BULLS-EYE GROVERS, THAT ARE STUNNING AND ARE WORTH $150 BY THEMSELVES.

-FRETS HAVE ALL BEEN LEVELED, RE-CROWNED AND POLISHED TO PERFECTION!!! THEY ARE AT 70%+ LIFE. YAIRI USED MEDIUM FRETS AND THE NECK IS REALLY FAST WITH THEM!

-THIS ONE HAS ITS SHARE OF DINGS AND LIGHT SCRATCHES ON THE TOP. NO HUGE HITS ,THERE ARE THE TYPICAL PLAYING MARKS/SCRATCHES ON THE TOP AND AROUND SOUNDHOLE AS WELL, THE BACK AND SIDES OF THE GUITAR IS IN REAL GOOD SHAPE FOR THERE AGE, JUST SOME TYPICAL LIGHT TO SMALL SCRATCHES.  OVER ALL SHE IS A NICE VINTAGE YAIRI-THE PICTURES TELL THE STORY! SHE SOUNDS AMAZING! GREAT NECK ANGLE AND LOW ACTION. THE TRUSS ROD WORKS SMOOTH AND HAS ALMOST ZERO PRESSURE ON IT TO KEEP THE NECK STRAIGHT! SWEET!!!

THIS ONE HAS A 9VOLT POWERED TWIN PICKUP SYSTEM BY BARCUS BERRY. NO CONTROLS JUST PLUG AND PLAY. IT HAS THE TRANSDUCER UNDER THE SADDLE AND ANOTHER PICKUP SENSOR MOUNTED ON THE BRIDGE PLATE, WITH A PROCESSOR LOCATED IN THE JACK ASSEMBLY.


HERE AT TIM'S ACOUSTICS WE ALWAYS FIND THE BEST YAIRI'S AND THE MAKE THEM EVEN BETTER!
