1978 K. Yairi DY96 Brazilian Rosewood hand crafted and signed by the legendary Japanese luthier: Kazuo Yairi. This is the holy grail of handmade Japanese acoustic guitars with only a handful ever built before Yairi launched Alvarez Guitars for the global masses. The design was Yairi taking a Martin D-45 and elevating it with the very finest materials in the world. The Brazilian Rosewood on this example is amongst the most striking and dramatic we have ever seen, including on the headstock face. The grain of the spruce top is intense. The sound of this guitar is nothing short of tremendous. If you want the very best acoustic guitar to ever come from Japan, you are looking at it here. It comes with a new premium Alvarez hard case for guaranteed protection. A new production Martin D-45 will run you £10,500 here in the UK. The finest K. Yairi guitar ever built, hand crafted and signed by the man himself will set you back for a fraction of that price, and you will be getting a far superior and special guitar for your money.

This ultra rare K. Yairi guitar is part of the world famous instrument collection at Essex Recording Studios! Check out the official Essex Recording Studios website for more pictures and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitch and YouTube
