Handcrafted in Japan using time-honored techniques, the FYM74ce features a solid AAA vintage Californian redwood top paired with solid East Indian rosewood back and sides for a balanced, nuanced sound with shimmering highs and a tight low end. The mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard provide a smooth playing experience so you can execute intricate passages and complex chords with ease. LR Baggs HiFi electronics give you studio-quality plugged-in tone for live performance or recording.

Resonant Tonewoods for a Nuanced Sound

The FYM74ce's solid AAA Californian redwood top produces a clear, articulate tone with sparkling highs and focused lows. When paired with solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, the result is a resonant and balanced sound with a quick decay. These premium tonewoods, combined with Alvarez Yairi's FST6 bracing system, generate impressive volume and projection so your playing cuts through.

A Neck and Fingerboard Built for Speed and Comfort

The FYM74ce's mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard are designed for effortless playability at a fast pace. The mahogany neck provides stability and sustain while the ebony fingerboard offers a smooth surface so your fingers glide across the strings. A 1 3⁄4" nut width gives you ample room for complex chords and fingerpicking. Nickel silver frets with a 25.5" scale length let you bend strings and play high on the neck with ease.

Plug in for Studio-Quality Tone

The FYM74ce comes equipped with L.R. Baggs HiFi electronics for a natural amplified tone. The HiFi system accurately captures the nuances of your playing and the guitar's resonant sound. A mix control lets you blend the signals from the bridge and soundhole pickups to suit different styles. With discrete controls for bass, mid and treble, you have the flexibility to shape your tone for any musical situation. The HiFi system gives you studio-quality tone for live shows, recording or jamming with friends.
