‘The FYM95V is a full size 12 fret OM size wide neck model, made of the finest tone woods from the K Yairi workshops. An extremely rare and sought-after model. The 12-fret setup gives a tighter feel than a normal 14 fretter. Solid naturally aged top-grade sitka spruce with tight grain for the top, and all solid Indian rosewood for the back and sides. Ebony bridge and fingerboard, mahogany neck, the headstock is open slotted in the true vintage style, with gold Gotoh tuners. The deep sound is laden with overtones, precise but precise and responsive. This is truly the guitar of a lifetime for the active player who is looking for a retro instrument that is discrete in appearance, but with absolute tonal perfection. Finger style paradise.’

This Alvarez Yairi FYM95V acoustic is a stunning little guitar made from Solid Indian Rosewood. The Yairi is rich and warm sounding with wonderful strong mids and round, bell like trebles.
The guitar itself is very light in weight due to the quality of the wood and thin finish - you feel it resonating as it instantly responds to your playing. Its projection is open and its volume for an OM body size is loud.
Being a Yairi, its intonation is excellent, and the all-around spec of the guitar is of the highest level with the amazing ebony bridge, fingerboard and headstock veneer.
The guitar is in excellent condition. There are a few light scratches and some evidence of buckle rash, but nothing offensive. It has had no changes, modifications or repairs and presents as a beautifully made, lightweight instrument with an open, warm voice.
Comes in its original hard-shell case in new condition.
