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.

The PYM70 is such a musically expressive parlor guitar... tonally rich and balanced, good sustain and projection, dynamic, light weight, easy to play. The vibrations of this beautifully crafted instrument make you feel very connected to the notes you’re playing. Thank you Yairi. Thank you AMS.

Beyond impressed!

Product Review

Such a big difference between this guitar and the MPA 70 and AP70... so much so where the difference in price is justifiable in my opinion. It has a lot of volume , a very thin finish( can see it sunken into the grain on back and sides) very good grain in the wood, and every detail on this instrument screams quality. Just watch the yairi factory tour on YouTube.... The neck is the most comfortable I’ve played on. Finger board is smooth and frets are honed perfectly, Tuners are very well made and hold tuning great. The string spacing at the sound hole took a few minutes to get use to but I like it. I cannot express how much I love the tone this instrument provides, every other parlor I’ve played sounded boxy and almost like a toy, the pym70’s highs have a beautiful chime to them, mids are pronounced and the bass response sounds very full. Most comfortable guitar I’ve played also.... simply not enough room here to elaborate enough.
