Here are some picks.

It plays like an electric. When I found her I feel in love. She never talks backs and always has something nice to say when I pick her up. laugh.gif

Sorry. I didn't have time to resize because I was in chat.

Cheers,

You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Thanks everyone! smile.gif

It is one of the best Acoustics I have played, well maybe besides that Gumbo hand made Guild or som! tongue.gif

I will get her cleaned up and post some sound clips when I can.

I installed a Dimarzio thin line pickup under the bridge because that is what you did back in the day. I will also try and find a MIC to record a different clip as well.

Cheerio's and thanks,

Skillet

Here is some more information on the spec because some have asked for it.

Alvarez DY61 - solid cedar top, burled mahogany sides and back, ebony fretboard with slotted diamond and abalone slash inlay at 12th fret, ebony bridge, 1-11/16" nut width, 25-1/2" scale, maple-bound body with 5-ply wood top purfling, abalone rosette, gold tuners with tortoise plastic buttons, Signature Edition. This is an Alvarez Signature Guitar, Handmade by Kazuo Yairi.

LINK WITH MORE PICS: Not my guitar but the pictures have better lighting.

Nice Acoustic. Do you know the age when it was built?. It would be interesting to know.
