  1. I have a Alvarez by KazuoYairi serial #57701, Model DY 48. Year stamped 1985. Do you know why this can’t be found under the Alvarez data? Had it for years and was just wondering what its value is. I would put this against a Martin any day; and I own a Martin.

  2. I share the same question…. Where is the DY-48 in the data list?

    My Alvarez by Kazuo Yairi (signed on tag) DY-48, 1983, Serial 47404, Made in Japan, is in EXCELLENT condition (always well cared for, never too dry) and sounds simply amazing. I’m considering selling it,,,, maybe. Maybe. Wondering about it’s real worth…?

  3. I have a 1983 dy53 that looks dead on like the dy48 in their picture but I can’t find a dy53 that looks like mine
