The Alvarez Yairi FYM72 acoustic-electric guitar offers serious musicians a handcrafted instrument with premium tonewoods and components for exquisite sound and playability. Built in the Yairi workshop in Japan, the FYM72 features an AAAA Adirondack spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard and bridge for resonant tone with rich overtones. The new FST6 bracing system provides a more open and balanced sound with clear, full bass.

Premium Materials for Stunning Tone

As an acoustic guitarist, you'll appreciate the FYM72's all-solid wood construction using some of the finest tonewoods available. The AAAA Adirondack spruce top provides articulate highs and projection, while the rosewood back and sides add warmth and depth. The result is a shimmering, complex tone with lush overtones. The bone nut and saddle, ebony bridge and mahogany neck also enhance resonance and clarity. Overall, the FYM72 delivers a premium acoustic experience worthy of the most discerning player.

New Bracing System Opens Up the Sound

Yairi's new FST6 bracing system builds on their expertise crafting acoustic guitars for over 80 years. The redesigned braces are lighter in weight to allow more vibration of the top. You'll immediately notice how open and responsive the FYM72 feels under your fingers. Single notes ring out with piano-like clarity and full chords resonate fully with rich overtones. Whether fingerpicking or strumming, the FYM72 projects a balanced, nuanced tone that inspires you to play for hours.

Electric Versatility When You Need It

While the FYM72 shines acoustically, it also features an L.R. Baggs pickup for gigging or recording. The Element pickup captures the natural tone of the guitar with minimal coloration. Paired with the Stagepro EQ, you have control over the blend and tone when amplified. Connect to your favorite acoustic amp or PA and share the resonant voice of your FYM72 with audiences. For acoustic players who value both unplugged and amplified performance, the FYM72 delivers exquisite tone in any situation.
