Overview

A wonderful performance guitar or just for playing for pleasure. The Alvarez Yairi WY1, from the Bob Weir Series AC/EL Folk line, is a medium-depth acoustic guitar with a single cutaway and select tonewoods, most notably a select (AA Western Red) cedar top. The grain on these tops is very close and even, and in concert with the rosewood back and sides, the overall appearance of this instrument is striking.

The top is bound in ivoroid and features a double circle rosette around the centered sound hole. The neck is made of mahogany and is attached to the body with a dovetail joint set at the 14th fret. As soon as you lift this guitar out of the wood frame case it comes with, its quality is evident. Every detail, the balance and the stunning beauty of the woods instills a great sense of appreciation for the workmanship and design. It features side dots for player orientation, and a lovely custom inlay at the 12th fret. It is comfortable to wear and sounds great acoustically.

The SYS650 is a dual pickup system incorporating one under saddle pickup and a transducer pickup placed under the soundboard. Select between the two or blend a mix of the two in order to find changes in response for lead, picking or strumming. The system also features a chromatic tuner with backlit LCD screen, 3-bands of rotary EQ and a notch control for identifying and cutting overly prominent frequencies that are causing feedback.
