I really wish someone could tell me the kind of guitar this is. It also has the 60th anniversary plate. Who is slm, and why isnt there much information about this guitar?

Re: Alvarez Model 5042

: I also have an Alvarez 5042 and cannot find any info. I bought (traded other instruments) mine new approx. 15-16 years ago (maybe longer). Here is what I have been able to determine about mine:
Made in Japan-Inspected by K Iaata??-Rosewood bridge-Koa wood back and sides-Laminated top (Spruce??)-No pickguard as purchased (installed by me later-"Hand Made" (on brace inside)-Alvarez logo on head-Alvarez name on back of head-Abalone inlay around sound hole-Amber color on tuners.
As I remember the asking price new was either $435 or $535 USA.
Does this sound like yours?
Hope this helps.
