Hey all a few years back I was scoping for a cheap acoustic to pick around on and I came across an Alvarez Artist 5041 60th anniversary ser.#000630 acoustic electric at a pawn shop and I got it for 30$.Granted the internal pickup wasn't in the guitar it plays better than any Martin or even Taylor over ever tried out.I was wondering what is this guitar valued at?I have no desire to ever part with it as it sounds beautiful but I am curious.Thanks for any input!
Rosewood back and sides ,NOT laminate from what I can see. The backs rosewood matches the inside grain of wood. Top is one piece spruce. Has new Klusen tuners,natural finish on top,not sunburst. Tunomatic bridge. Alvarez script logo.Gibson style headstock .
I was told it was one of the first Doves made in Japan circa 1969. Can anyone elaborate on this guitar ? It is very heavy ,so it may be laminated,but wood matches from exterior to interior wood
Plays like a dream,perfect intonation . It is the best acoustic for recording I hVe every owned,absolutely no sustain. Just records chords I.e. Rhythm better than any guitar made. It is not loud at all , this guitar is an anomaly in the studio.
I also own two Martins D-45 and D -42 ... The D 42 blows away the more expensive D 45 and for recording rhythm tracks the Alvarez Dove is better than either Martin.
Contact me if you know about this guitar and serial number (3094 ) made in Japan model 5025. Very fancy large label inside of a classic man plating a lute ?

Salve ho in possesso una chitarra Don Alvarez 22 m exclusive meazzi model del 1973. Sapete dirmi gentilmente che valore commerciale potrebbe avere in questo momento. Grazie
i bought an alvarez at an action paid 200$ k. yairi c116 model it is sighned under the serial # date is 1980 did i geta deal or not
Are you joking??!!! If you got a Kazuo Yairi for $200 you need to play the lottery right now!, lol. A Kazuo Yairi Alvarez can be worth thousands! I have seen them priced from $450-$5,000. These fine guitars are made 1 at a time by Japanese guitar luthier Kazuo Yairi (please excuse my spelling). I think Mr. Yairi might be retired now but when he was working he produced some of the worlds finest n most beautiful guitars. Wow I am jealous. In answer to your question ................ Yes sir ....... you got a deal!!
I purchased this guitar in a pawn shop in 1971. Never learned to play very well, only about 10 hours.I'm 67 years old and would consider sellin it. Can't find any serial numbers on it.CHERRY. bEST OFFER OVER 3500.00
I have an Alvarez classical guitar. The model number is 5006. The serial number is 570. Somebody scratched off the country of origin on the tag. Supposedly it was made in Japan. Could you give me info on this?

just like to know lil mo on my alvarez 5025a
What would you like to know about it? The guitar was made at St. Louis Music (slm) in the 70's
The same place where Crate amplifiers were made. John Karpowicz was one of the creators of the
crate, however, I don't know who started making the Alvarez at SLM. I think the name was added
My Dad bought a Alvarez 5039, I believe that he got it Christmas 1975. The date on the inside says 2/12/1975, I assume that is the date it was manufactured or completed. The plate says it is 753 of 800. My Day loved that guitar. It is still in mint condition. The case is worn and not in good shape.
What is my in nearly perfect shape Alvarez artist model 5042worth
Good Evening, you were wondering about what your Alvarez Artist, model 5042 (60th. Anniversary) guitar was worth. Well I happen to have the same guitar, I purchased this guitar brand new in 1982, I think I payed somewhere around $350.00 for it and I have wondered like you have of the value of this fine guitar. The numbers on the back of the brass plate on the back of my guitar reads 000072, which means I have the 72nd. 60th. anniversary of the model 5042. I was just looking on ebay and came across the same guitar we own, the seller (JaxPawn) has a "Buy it Now" price of $1299.99. He is stating that this is an extremely rare guitar. I am hoping this is the case, I knew that this guitar may have some value but wasn't sure if it would be this much. By the way, the numbers on the plate of the guitar he is selling are 000326 so if yours is a lower number like mine is that may be more good news. Now I don't know if this will be the going rate for these guitars, like I stated above this is the only Alvarez #5042 that I have seen going for that price. Lets keep our fingers crossed, lol. I hope this helps you in some way. Keep on pickin', have a great evening.
I'm writing The Encyclopedia Of Jerry Garcia Music Venues. A section of the book chronicles Garcia's 92 musical instruments. I'm interested in information regarding Serial numbers 44181 and 72982.
Garcia owned these:
Alvarez-Yairi DY99 Virtuoso Modulus, 1992
Alvarez-Yairi DY98, 1991 custom
Can you match the serail numbers to the correct guitar?
I have one as well and it sounds and plays as good as it did when I first it. The serial number is all zeros and 19. If you ever find out the value I would be happy if you shared it. I bought mine in late 1981 for $300 or a little more.

I have an Alvarez Guitar with serial # 60905014 model # 5209 and i was wondering if you could tell me what it is worth
Hey guys, I just bought an Alvarez Model 5073 in an estate sale. I think it was made in 81 or 82, is a thin body acoustic/electric with a tone and volume knob. Dark Brown solid color, quite a pretty guitar, and plays well. Can anyone tell me about this particular model, and what it might be worth? I already have someone looking to trade me a new Dean Acoustic model EQA TBK, and don't want to do anything foolish.
one of the sweetest guitars i've ever owned...paid $350 for it (used) in 1983...better hang on to it
Do you, by any chance still have that Alvarez? If so I am interrested to buy or to trade for newer acoustic? I collect old japanese acoustic guitars and shape it is in is of lesser importance, as it will be just in display. If you di not have it any more maybe you have co-ordinates of present owner?
Yo man i have an Álvarez 5073

Would anyone know approx value of a Juan Alvarez made in 1980? Made in Madrid.
The value really depends on the model and condition, Juan and his Brother Lorenzo had very good skills with some mentoring by Barbero although good instruments they really did not get the player to move there guitars forward. If you contact me with some info I can be a little more specific.
I have an alvares model 5086 serial number 31518 with case in perfect condition been used maybe 10 times whats it worth?
