    Silvertone 1457 (from 1966)

    Case was destroyed, so I built a new one to put the original amp in.

    My 'geet' of the day is my least expensive guitar. $99. And it is freaking amazing.

    I replaced the tuners -- the one thing that while "okay," really weren't up to snuff in the company it keeps.

    Everything else is. The neck. The sound.

    Yes, it is truly a delight to play!

    I have a very strong affinity for all guitars from K Yairi. Yours is beautiful. While I've never had the kind fortune to own a true Yairi, I have had two of the poor man's Yairi. My 5064, just like my first 5064 is stamped inside K Yairi. Not all Alvarez, even in his lifetime bear the signature stamp. Many things are 'wrong' with these particular guitars. Although I've seen them occasionally listed as solid tops, I believe the more common attribution of a laminated top, back and sides. A 'Florentine' cutaway, very rarely seen on acoustic guitars, especially Dreadnoughts. BUT, aging them 40 odd years and they sound like a fabulous dream. They now sell for between 2-4 times their original sale price commonly. Indeed, if you find one under $300 and are of a mind for a fantastic acoustic, grab it, they seldom dip that low in price.

    First 5064, bought in summer/fall 1979

    Current, '5064. bought 6-7 years ago, '77 vintage. (Old Alvarez, and maybe Yairi's, had the date stamped or handwritten somewhere on the label.)
