Hello. I've got a DY 46 that I picked up at a pawn shop about 5 months ago. I'm trying to find out any history on it as its apparently not a very popular model. As much as I know, it is about a 1981.. Thanks.

i was lucky to find a (new)1980 alvarez yairi dy 46 at a columbia ,Sc. guitar show..it is an amazing guitar!!!! i have martins,gibsons,and several others,but nothing compares to the full sound of this yairi...the finish and handmade qualities are evident which i think adds to the awesomeness of this guitar....replaced the pins with bone ones and some new martin 12's bluegrass strings and it BOOMS !!!! can't say enough....the rest are put away in the cases..lol.

I have one of these. Bought it in spring of 79 I think. I love this guitar. It is beautiful, and carries a wonderfully full sound. Not sure why it wouldn't be popular. There were two in stock at the time. One with a dull finish, that was even more beautiful, and the one I got with a shiny finish, but which just had a bit better sound on the low end. I paid $400 for it at the time, no idea what they go for now.

I have one that i'm trying to sell. Mine was made in 1982 but I think they made them for about five years starting in 81. They are made in Japan. From what I understand Alvarez is just the American distributor. I know that they are handmade.
