This Alvarez 5008 classical guitar was built in Japan in 1970. Signed and dated by Kazuo Yairi on the label. It features a Spruce top with an intricate Rosette inlayed around the sound hole. It has a traditional Mahogany neck that is arrow straight with a Rosewood fretboard that has a 12/19 fret configuration. The scale length is 660mm with a 2-1/16" nut width. The body is made of Rosewood which is book-matched on the back with Rosewood binding around the top and bottom of the guitar. The headstock has a matching Rosewood veneer.
