The FYM66HDE is a folk/OM sized guitar, and with a smaller body than a dreadnought is relatively lightweight and very easy to play. As a special bonus, this guitar comes with a factory installed L.R. Baggs VTC piezo pickup!
The Honduran series in the Yairi Masterworks line feature all-solid construction, with beautifully figured Honduran mahogany top, back, and sides. The mahogany neck is topped with an ebony fretboard and rosewood headstock plate. The nut is bone and the saddle is tusq, with an ebony bridge and pegs. This particular Honduran mahogany was sourced by Mr. Yairi approximately 50 years ago, and has been wonderfully aged. Sonically speaking, the Honduran series are incredibly resonant, loud, and well balanced.
This guitar is in brand new factory fresh condition, and will ship with the original Alvarez hardshell case. DuBaldo Music Center case candy included!

The Yairi factory is in the small town of Kani, in the hills north of Nagoya, Japan. Here they have been making guitars for 80 years. The late Kazuo Yairi was one of the finest and most successful luthiers of our time and helped design and make Alvarez-Yairi guitars for nearly 50 years. The pride within the factory is immediately evident. Floors are made of mahogany, some walls are rosewood tongue and groove, and furniture is hand carved by the luthiers. The amount of naturally seasoned tone wood is legendary and the production line marries time honored handmade craftsmanship with modern day design and processes. Every neck is spoke shaved by hand, braces are carved and tops are tuned to perfection. Hide glues are used throughout, and attention to detail and quality of the build is incredible. Alvarez Yairi guitars are beautifully presented, wonderful sounding, luthier-made instruments, which in our opinion are some of the finest guitars in today’s market.
