    Product Description

    The Alvarez-Yairi Masterworks instruments represent the ultimate crossroads of old-world traditional craftsmanship and modern construction techniques. After 50 years of refinement, the Yairi luthiers have constructed a guitar that embodies the magic so many players seek and yet few have yet to find: the delicate balance of roaring power and subtle, shimmering detail.

    The connection you'll have with these instruments can only be described as telepathic. Every input, no matter how dynamic, practically leaps out of the guitar like an arc of electricity. The experience will change your perspective on what an acoustic instrument should be.

    The luthiers in the Yairi shop have learned a few things in 50 years - most importantly, the magic is nothing if you can't replicate it consistently, guitar after guitar. Part of that equation is a maniacal attention to detail. Another component is the use of modern construction techniques unique to Yairi instruments.

    If you're going to redefine the idea of balanced tone, you've got to experiment. The Yairi luthiers started by building dozens of prototypes, each using a different bracing pattern. Through almost two years of testing, they gradually narrowed the field until they had settled on what everyone believed to be the most responsive, loudest, best-sounding guitar they had ever built. The bracing technique used in that guitar is now known as FSTII,’ short for ‘forward-shifted, type 2.’ This unique bracing pattern is now found in all Yairi Masterworks instruments, and is at the core of their vibrant, explosive tone.

    Part of what makes Yairi instruments so responsive is the direct-coupled bridge. Under the top, there is an ebony block with a flange that pulls the bridge plate and top. When inserted into the bridge, the strings pull up on this block, which couples the strings directly to the bridge plate and top. Simultaneously, the strings exert down-pressure on the saddle and bridge, ensuring that it cannot be pulled off the guitar. The complete system could literally function without any glue, since the string tension pulls the block tight to the top while also holding down the bridge, increasing sustain, volume, and resonance while creating extremely clear articulation between the strings.

    Yairi instruments also use an extended dovetail neck block. This adds support to the area between the body joint and the end of the fingerboard. Combined with a longer adjustable truss rod, this results in a significant increase in stability all the way to the sound hole. This in turn has a dramatic impact on tonal balance, and gives these instruments their immediate, punch-in-the-chest response when you really rip into them.

    This perfect collision of innovation and tradition is what Yairis are made of. Uniquely expressive instruments that'll give you the chills every time you pick them up, now and forever.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I've been a Yairi owner for years. The two reasons why these are not the most famous guitars on earth are that the standard Alvarez brand is best known for inexpensive instruments and because the distributor has never bothered to do any marketing of the Yairi brand. I will put a Yairi up against any contender - Martin, Taylor, etc., and come up the winner. The full, rich and lively tone of my Yairis have been amazing right out of the box. One, which I have had for 38 years is just as great as when it was new - in other words, it did not take a decade of aging to develop a great tone. It is built right in. Not only do the Yairis sound better than my D-28, but they are much, much more playable. I cannot think of any better guitar for serious blues - you can really pull a lot of soul out of them. I've also used them for years for down-tuned steel-finger picking. I even restrung one as a banjo and recorded some really amazing bluegrass - a great woody tone without the twang. Top kudos!

    It holds it's own with brand name guitars costing hundreds of dollars more.

    The sound, the playability and the looks are as good as it gets no matter the price or brand name. You can't go wrong with the quality and workmanship of this instrument. I would buy it again.
