Price Paid for Alverez Yairi WY1K: $950 USD
Description of Alverez Yairi WY1K: Made in Japan. Acoustic with pick-up. Body is all Koa wood. Saddle and fingerboard are ebony. Neck is mahogany. Inlay is all Abalone shell.
Tone of Alverez Yairi WY1K:
Comments about Alverez Yairi WY1K: Every single string sounds full and even with no particular tone standing out. This guitar sounds amazing when picked. Because of that balance the guitar also sounds great when strummed. Since I bought this guitar everything else sounds sloppy.
Quality of Alverez Yairi WY1K:
Comments about Alverez Yairi WY1K: After a year of ownership I've found one small area where the curve of the body isn't absolutely perfect (but it's close). Considering the fact that this is a hand made guitar I think that's pretty good. I can't find anything else wrong with it.
Overall Opinions of Alverez Yairi WY1K:
Pros: I got this guitar at cost and haven't seen it anywhere else for less than $1600. I would happily pay $3000 or more for a guitar like this but the only other guitar I've found that compares is a $5,000 Taylor. I've got eight other acoustic guitars that I'm going to have to sell because I don't play them anymore.
Cons: I pay this guitar on stage and every single sound comes out perfectly on the P.A. But that also means every little mistake I make comes out loud and clear (G). This guitar is not at all forgiving to mistakes.
