Product Description

The Alvarez-Yairi luthiers really had their work cut out for them when they set out to create a next level baritone acoustic with world-class tone and playability. The YB70 is the end-result, and it's everything they wanted to be - and then some!

With a forward-shifted, scalloped bracing system, the YB70 really roars, with a low B string that'll knock the wind out of you. An extended dovetail neck block and extended-length truss rod adds significant structural rigidity and stability. The direct-coupled ebony bridge plate creates a more efficient transfer of energy from the strings to the top, making the YB70 lively, vibrant, and responsive - never floppy or mushy like your typical de-tuned acoustic.

Product Review

I have the Chinese ABT 60, love it. Mahogany. Thought the Japanese YB70 Rosewood might be a nice pairing--different flavors/sound. Makes it nice when a guest comes over to offer them a baritone. No muss no fuss transposing. While that is a good skill to work on with the baritone. The YB is an 1 11/16ths nut. The ABT 1 12/16th. Otherwise they play very similar, sound just a little different. I tune standard baritone B to B. Puts many songs effortlessly in my vocal register with the fine tuning option of capoing as many as 4 frets and still being below E to E standard. When capoed at the fifth fret in E-E they both sound good and you can think in the key others are playing. While the baritone sustain is cool, it is the support and ease of singing that draws me to the baritone. Very happy with my reasonably priced Yairi. Both were made much more enjoyable with a good technician setup.
