Product Description

The FYM70 features the FST2 bracing system, a very forward shifted X-brace design which was the result of years of research and development.  FST2 features  hand scooped scalloping to the main braces and asymmetric scalloping to the two tone bars.  In this way, we optimize the separation between each string and maximize balance and projection.

We take the same deliberate approach to our finishes, which range from shimmering natural satin to breathtaking sunbursts and shadowbursts.  Careful preparation and years of experience allow our craftsmen to keep the finish thin which allows our high grade tops an excellent rate of vibration and movement.

Players love Folk/OM or OOO shapes for their wonderful balance across all strings, making them ideal for fingerpicking.  The FYM70 has been carefully designed to take advantage of a folk shape’s best properties.  It features a solid AAA grade sitka spruce top.

Further innovation comes with the Direct Coupled Bridge. This system really shows off the craftsmanship of which these guitars are made. The DC Bridge means the pins actually go into the top of the guitar, taking the vibration to the heart of the soundboard and at the same time hugely increasing the break angle from the saddle to the top. This increased down pressure raises string tension, giving the guitar a very responsive feel and adding quality to its volume and sustain.  Other presentments include hand cut and assembled pearl and ablone inlays, ivoroid binding, ebony fingerboard, ebony bridge and ebony bridge pins.

Like all Yairi Masterworks this guitar is made from premium tone wood that has been seasoned naturally for 5 to 15 years in the perfect climate of Kani.

This guitar is brand new, with no dings, dents, fretwear, or shop wear and has not been put on display in our retail store. The guitar will come with the original hard-shell case, and will include the legendary DuBaldo Music case candy.
