The serial number is 97030775 and am wanting to sell it . Regards, Max I have a beautiful Alvarez 5051, 60th anniversary edition of SLM 1922-1982, SERIAL NUMBER 000003. Beautiful tone and plays and sounds as good as any of my guitars and I have a 1962 Gibson J-50, a 2005 Martin D-42, and several more guitars. Can anyone tell me about this particular model, and what it might be worth? I am looking to sell an Alvarez Custom 1981 DY60 Yairi Anniversary 6string Acoustic-electric & wanting to know a price. Alvarez is a guitar brand founded in 1965 by distributor St. Alvarez has generally produced acoustic and acoustic-electric guitars, including classical guitars, and for a time solid-body electric guitars and basses.From 2005 to 2009, the brand was owned by LOUD Technologies, which also owns Mackie, Ampeg, Crate and other music-related brands.The only serial numbers listed on Alvarez's website is for their Yairi guitars. It is special because of who owned it and not because of what it is. I was unable to find anything online or a email address for Alvarez. Thanks, Rob PS: I did upload photos to the photo gallery. Alvarez support should be able to give you a definitive answer, but I believe the letter prefix is a factory designation, and the first digit gives the year. Go to the forum on the site labeled "Alvarez and Alvarez Yairi Info. Alvarez support should be able to give you a definitive answer, but I believe the letter prefix is a factory designation, and the first digit gives the year.
I have a alvarez fusion 5080N Purchased around 1995 for 8 to 900.00 dollars that is and electrical accoustic in a hard case in mint condition . If you got a Kazuo Yairi for 0 you need to play the lottery right now! If you di not have it any more maybe you have co-ordinates of present owner?
Dark Brown solid color, quite a pretty guitar, and plays well.
Never learned to play very well, only about 10 hours. I think it was made in 81 or 82, is a thin body acoustic/electric with a tone and volume knob.
Good Evening, you were wondering about what your Alvarez Artist, model 5042 (60th. Well I happen to have the same guitar, I purchased this guitar brand new in 1982, I think I payed somewhere around 0.00 for it and I have wondered like you have of the value of this fine guitar. I was just looking on ebay and came across the same guitar we own, the seller (Jax Pawn) has a "Buy it Now" price of 99.99. I bought it new and was looking for a new case for her..original one is worn out. I'm glad to hear the value is more than I paid for it new.
