About This Listing

Vintage Made in Japan classical guitar by Alvarez.  This is the 5001 model with Brazilian rosewood back and sides (layered) and the grain is mesmerizing. I am approximating this to be a 1970s build. In good playing order and appears to be an all original guitar except for the strings which are fresh. Frets show normal wear.  

There is checking on the top in the finish but does not go into the wood top.  These can be seen in the photo with a side-photo of the bridge/sound hole.  There is also some what looks like oxidization on the bottom of the guitar where the guitar rests against your leg and looks like a cloudy area in the finish.  No structural issues, just cosmetic things to note.  

Based on my research, the top is solid Spruce but I am not an expert so please do your research as well.  If you would like any other photos please let me know.  

Comes with the vintage chip-board case.
