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.

  • Dreadnought
  • Mahogany neck
  • D’Addario EXP strings

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.

Product Review

I have three other Yairi's, a Martin Dred and a USA Guild; all great playing and great looking guitars. Shiny gloss Sitka tops and mahogany/rosewood bodies. Beautiful. This guitar looked pretty plain on first sight; satin finish with a dull brown cedar top. Picking her up though I noticed her finish was unlike other satin finishes I'd seen; attractive. The lines of her top wood were straight and close together with silking on cedar. Her build was flawless and when she spoke her voice was softer than the others with almost an ethereal third dimension to it. Although I soon found out she could speak out when she wanted to! Oh yes, just plainly perfect.

I love this thing!

Product Review

This product culminates years of my searching for a great acoustic guitar. I can play this guitar randomly and it still sounds good because every note is "musical". You get a special feeling when you open up a new guitar shipment and the guitar is perfect. It inspires confidence in the company and the instrument. This one needed no set-up at all. It tuned up very smoothly and a week later the tuning was still exact. Two weeks later still the same thing. What a pleasure! I am amazed to finally know what some cords are really supposed to sound like. It increases my ability to innovate by about 50 percent. You don't have to "dig" at the strings to get individual notes to ring out loud and clear, neither does it compress the volume when you strum hard to get volume. OH, and it is about 30 percent lighter than a typical Dreadnaught. I received superior and cordial service from Glenn W

Glass of milk and honey or glass of vinigar ? Unbelievable !

Product Review

This is the GREATEST guitar I have ever had in my hands , bar none . I have 23 guitars mostly Martins and Gibson also 5 Taylors . Do not get me wrong they make great guitars.But I am ashamed to say that the Yairi ( I have 2 )will DESTROY all of them . And the cost of the Yairi is pennies compared to the rest. I am an old man and I hate to see this in our great country. These guitars say it all ,night and day,black and white . Try one and see.

Sleeper for half a century

Product Review

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.
