The Alvarez Yairi WY1 faithfully carries on the Yairi legacy of world-class handcrafted Japanese guitars, all in a supremely versatile OM-shaped package. East Indian rosewood back and sides give the WY1 plenty of low-end power and high-end sparkle, perfectly complemented by the AA Western red cedar top’s warm, touch-sensitive response. Under WY1’s elegant exterior, it’s all performance — a slightly deeper than usual OM body style, deep cutaway, and Direct Coupled bridge give this OM a tonal flexibility and reliability that stand above the rest. No matter what style you play, the mahogany/rosewood neck’s soft “V” to “C” carve delivers easy chording at the base of the neck, with a comfortable flat feel as you go further up. Finally, an LR Baggs Element pickup and a StagePro preamp faithfully translate your acoustic tone when it comes time to plug in.
