Made in Japan, likely to be better than the Chinese budget acoustics but not a Taylor. Still, a nice welcome present. Sorry, I've heard of them, but never played one (I'm a rotten guitarist anyway, so my op would mean little).

Another old post, but will post info for other members that may have the same question/model.

The 5018 Alvarez Cremona Sunburst is from the early 1980's.. MSRP 1983 was $275, spruce top, mahogany back and sides, all laminates.
