The late Kazuo Yairi was one of the finest and most successful luthiers of our time. He helped design and make Alvarez-Yairi guitars for nearly 50 years. Every neck is spoke shaved by hand, braces are carved and tops are tuned to perfection. The attention to detail and quality of the build are impeccable. Alvarez Yairi guitars are beautifully presented, wonderful sounding, luthier-made instruments, which in our opinion are some of the finest guitars in today’s market.
