Re: Alvarez bicentennial model?

: Ive never had any luck finding any info on this guitar. just wondering if anyone new anything about it. an acoustic guitar with an engraved plate on the back of the headstock reading : "Bicentennial Model, Limited Edition, 763/800"

: Any info would be great
I got one that has "76" and star inlay with white ivory binding on the fretboard and a herring bone like binding on the body. It looks like a copy of a Martin d35 "76" but with a split back instead of a 3 piece back. I would also like to get an idea of the worth...I've had it since the early 80's bought it at a pawn shop for $200. and have never seen another one like it. I think the model number is 5054

just found this site

I just found this site while I was doing some browsing. I bought and still own an Alvarez bicentennial guitar from 1976. It is #3 of 800. I've played it all these years. The action is high but it has great tone. Any ideal what this guitar is worth? Thanks for any info.

Value of 76 bicentennial

One was listed on Ebay several months ago. It was in Mint Condition. The guy wanted $1,500. He kept
reducing the price until it went under $1,000. I don't know if it sold or not. If it got low enough I was going
to buy it. I had one which was stolen from my car in Philadelphia somewhere around 1978. I've always wanted
another one because it was so beautiful and had a sweet tone. Mine had a 3 piece back unlike the one referenced
in another post.
