This is a used guitar that is fully functional. This is a classic Japanese made Alvarez, made in 1976. Gorgeous three piece back on this example. The top, back, and sides are laminate, but that certainly doesn't keep it from having a lovely balanced tone. The saddle has been replaced. The original adjustable saddle is in the included original hardshell case, as shown in pictures. There are a few small dings in the top, and we have tried to show these in the close up photographs. There is some finish wear on the back of the neck in the cowboy chord area. There is plenty of fret life left on this guitar. We took a close up photo of the frets in the most worn area. The fretboard has that common wear in the cowboy chord area, too. Hopefully you can see this in the pictures.
