I have this guitar also. I just did a google search and yours was the only relevant reference I found.

I bought mine in 1979 - the body is Jacaranda wood, it has brass saddle, nut, and string pegs. It also has an inlay that reads "Festival".

Is this similar to yours?

I also have a 5029. It was given to me by my father-in-law, and I didn't have much info. Following is a reply I got from Alvarez regarding the wood used in the laminate. I suspected it was ash. I've never heard of Jacaranda before.

You might try contacting Tom Kruszka at Alvarez at tkruszka@STLOUISMUSIC.COM, although I don't think they'd give you an estimate, they might be able to give you a suggested retail price.

The 5029 was called the 'Ash Festival' model. I do not recall any other Alvarez ever being made of Ash laminates, it is truly a unique guitar. I am pleased to hear that it is still serving you well.

I have one as well, serial #60377. If you do find anything out, please let me know.
Does yours have the the brass bridge and nut? How about the finish, sort or rough-hewn, low-gloss? I am about to replace the keys with locking Grovers, and I'm kind of affraid to do it, don't want de-value it, but I have no idea what it's worth to begin with...
