Japanese Artisanship Meets Innovative Design in the Alvarez Yairi GYM80ce Acoustic-Electric Guitar.

The Alvarez Yairi GYM80ce acoustic-electric guitar brings together 80 years of Japanese guitar-making mastery with modern technology. Handcrafted from premium tonewoods in the Yairi workshop using time-honored techniques passed down through generations of luthiers, this grand auditorium cutaway is designed to inspire serious musicians with its resonant voice and effortless playability.

Premium Solid Tonewoods Produce Rich, Nuanced Tone

The GYM80ce's solid Sitka spruce top and flamed maple back and sides were hand-selected for their tonal properties, allowing this guitar to produce a complex range of tones from bright and articulate to warm and rich. The spruce top provides clarity and projection, while the figured maple adds midrange fullness and a touch of warmth. Together, these woods create an expressive voice that flatters both strumming and fingerpicking.

Ergonomic Cutaway and Slim Neck Profile Enhance Playability

With its cutaway and slim mahogany neck, the GYM80ce places no limits on your playing. Access the upper frets with ease for soloing, while the neck's comfortable profile lets you play for hours without fatigue. An ebony fingerboard and bridge provide a smooth playing surface, while bone nut and saddle materials transfer string vibrations efficiently for optimal tone and sustain.

Custom Bracing and Tuning Maximize Resonance

Yairi's innovative FST6 bracing system strikes a balance between strength and responsiveness, allowing the GYM80ce's top to vibrate freely. Before shipping each guitar, Yairi luthiers finely tune the top to bring out the most resonant frequencies for that particular instrument. The result is a guitar that feels alive in your hands, with richness, projection and nuance that inspire your creativity.

Hi-Fi Pickup System Delivers Natural Tone Plugged In

When you want to plug in, the GYM80ce's L.R. Baggs Hi-Fi pickup system authentically conveys your guitar's acoustic properties. This dual-source system uses an undersaddle pickup to capture body resonance, blended with a condenser mic for top vibrancy. Shape your tone with the onboard preamp's intuitive controls for volume, bass, middle and treble. Whether recording or performing live, you'll enjoy the most natural plugged-in acoustic sound.
