Up for sale, a 1990's Alvarez Yairi DY88 model dreadnought acoustic electric guitar in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. A model most closely associated with Radiohead's Thom York, and also a model that's extremely rare in any finish other than Black, this DY88 has a highly figured bookmatched flame maple top and a warm Sunburst gloss finish. With a full dreadnought body shape, comfortable treble-side body cutaway, and premium preamp, the DY88 has a clear, snappy acoustic tone with ample body, decent projection, and excellent feedback rejection. This guitar weighs 5lbs 9oz and has been professionally setup with low action and Elixer 12-53 strings. The mahogany neck has a slender C shape that plays effortlessly for quick chording and is easy on the hand for long gigs.The rosewood fretboard features slender frets that show virtually no wear, and the guitar achieves its surprising projection in part from the full 25 1/2 scale which puts ample tension on the top. The nut measures 1 11/16 in width, and the headstock is fitted with original Grover Rotomatic tuning machines which have a very reliable gear ratio and hold pitch well. The active preamp includes a three-band EQ as well as Volume and Contour controls, powered by a 9V battery. Cosmetic wear is limited to only a few light finish scratches on the guitar as a whole, and the instrument is ostensibly near mint and as rare as can be with a highly figured flame maple top, highlighted by a warm and vibrant gloss Sunburst finish. The original hardshell case is included. Check out our shop "Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, " and please let us know if we can answer any questions!
