Alvarez Model 5058 Nine String Guitar

I bot this guitar on e-Bay about four years ago for re-sale.
When I received it I fell in love with it and I play it almost daily. I would welcome any info about this fabulous instrument, It seems to have a very limited history and a rather secret one. I would also enjoy communicating with other owners. My e-mail is willsdealz@hotmail.com Thanks for any interest.

Re: Alvarez Model 5058 Nine String Guitar

When my Father passed, I came in possession of an Alvarez 9 string MDL# 5058.
I love playing it! It has a great sound! I have asked many local Music Shops if they have heard of this and the reply I keep getting is, “I have never heard of it.” I was wondering what the going price for this guitar is?

Re: Alvarez Model 5058 Nine String Guitar

: I had a music store in central Ar. I took a nine string in on trade. Everyone who plays it falls in love with it. Like you I can find nothing out about it. I would like to know its history and approxiate value.

Re: Alvarez Model 5058 Nine String Guitar

My mother bought this model guitar in Little Rock, Arkansas at Boyd's music in the early 80's. Would be too strange if this is the guitar you're talkinf about. I play it now, and the sound is fantastic. Seems like everyone who plays it has something good to say about it. A professional musician who stayed with my family while in town even borrowed it to play a show. Anyway, I have the sales receipt from the purchase and it was sold for 625$ back then.

K Yairi YC-200 made 1987

Anyone got anything to say about the YC-200?
I've had mine for a few years but havn't played it a lot. Took it out of the case the other day, tuned it up and it still sounds great. But, there doesn't seem to be much info on the web.

Alvarez 5024

Hello.
I have a Alvarez model 5024. It has no serial number, however it has a stamp inside on the label that says 3-2/71 and 2-3/71.

Can anyone help me decipher the numbers? I have suspicions that it was manufactured on either February 3 or March 2, 1971, but have not been able to confirm that anywhere.

Thanks
Wes

Re: Alvarez 5024

I also have a Alvarez 5024- that is the date! Do you have any sort of image or emblem on your head and/or neck, and pick gaurd?

Re: Alvarez 5024

Mine is a 5041 dated 5/7/71

There's this black square with a white vine pattern surrounding this man with a lyre in a circle.

There's an Alvarez emblem at the head of the guitar. tIt's inside this oval shaped thing

Re: dy-55 date?

the beginning 53 on the neck stamp probably refers to 1978 date of manufacture

Alvarez Acoustic model #5023 -year?

I inherited an alvarez m#5023 from my grandfather before he died. It's not for sale, so I don't care about what it's worth. I'm curious to find out the year it was made.
www.alvarezgtr.com says the 1'st two numbers are relate to the year of the emporer so 50 would be 1975 (on their chart). the 2nd two numbers relate to the month of production. (so what does that mean for 23?) So, I'm not sure if I'm looking at this correctly.
If anyone knows the year this was made I'd appreciate it.

Steve,
I have an Alvarez #5023 that my father bought for me brand new when I was a teenager. It has a date stamp in it 1-10-75. It is a great sounding and playing guitar. I don't know what their worth, but I often play it instead of my Taylor 810ce. Maybe it's 30+ years of seasoning, but it does sound remarkably warm.
Dave

Re: Alvarez Acoustic model #5023 -year?

I've got a 5023 that my parents bought me for my high school graduation in 1976. I think was made in '75 or '76. It is still my main instrument. As others have said, these guitars age amazingly well. Mine has also been played quite a bit by me and my two sons. It sounds and plays like many fine guitars that are sell for three or four times the price that I could sell this instrument for. I've had some work done over the years. I replaced the tuners, and had some work done on the bridge. I always hated the floating metal bridge, so I had someone fill it in with wood and replace the saddle. It's really made the guitar sound much better and eliminated some fred buzz I was getting. I've also had a few frets replaced, but after 30 years of extensive playing, I guess that's to be expected. I would never get rid of this guitar, even if I ever get that vingtage Lowden I'd love to have someday.

i have a 1975 alveraz with the original recipt and proof of purchase from the company. great guitar also.

Re: Alvarez Acoustic model #5023 -year?

I got an Alveraz from my grandfather also. It also had the card inside of proof of purchase from the alveraz company with the date 1975.

Re: Alvarez Acoustic model #5023 -year?

I started taking guitar lessons in 1977 and the Alvarez #5023 was my first guitar. In fact, I've bought three guitars since then, but I keep coming back to my acoustic. I've had some work done over the years, in particular, have had the action lowered a couple of times. It's been a great guitar and when freshly strung, sounds immaculate. I think my Dad paid about $175 or $275 for it in 1977. Don't know the present value, but when I go to Samuel Music, their acoustics sound and feel like crap compared to the Alvarez. So, my non-professional opionion is that they would go for $500-$600 in this day and age. Hope that helps.
