The new Alvarez-Yairi Masterworks instruments represent the ultimate crossroads of old-world traditional craftsmanship and modern construction techniques. After 50 years of refinement, the Yairi luthiers have constructed a guitar that embodies the magic so many players seek and yet few have yet to find: the delicate balance of roaring power and subtle, shimmering detail.

The connection you'll have with these instruments can only be described as telepathic. Every input, no matter how dynamic, practically leaps out of the guitar like an arc of electricity. The experience will change your perspective on what an acoustic instrument should be.

The CYM75 classical is the ultimate expression of what Kazuo Yairi wanted to build into a classical guitar - extreme dynamic sensitivity, a broad palate of tonal colors, and a perfectly balanced output from high to low, on every string. With only the choicest materials from Yairi's legendary wood inventory, the Yairi Masterworks classical guitars are lifetime instruments that will only get better with age.

"Absolutely Outstanding"
Been playing classical guitar professionally for many years. I have played so many, handmade, factory, etc. For once in life, I got the babe I have been seeking. This guitar is just magical. The basses are truly booming and the trembles are sweet as cake, perfectly balanced with precise intonation. I have owned customs for over 5k and bought this one for only 2K, what a steal. This is not a beginner or intermediate level guitar, it is professional. I've only had it about a year and the sound is only getting better (cedar top at that). I am not one to write reviews, but felt this is worthy of it. I will never, ever sell this guitar, it is my with me for life. If you may be considering this guitar, rest assured you made the best decision.
