A warm-toned parlor acoustic with superior Japanese craftsmanship.

The Alvarez Yairi PYM66HD parlor acoustic guitar brings together exquisite handcrafted quality with an inspiring tone. Produced in the renowned Yairi factory in Japan with over 80 years of guitar-making heritage, this all-mahogany guitar achieves a rich, balanced sound. Its solid Honduran mahogany top, back and sides create a sweet, warm tone, nicely balanced across the tonal spectrum. The comfortable feel and balanced voice make it a great choice for fingerstyle playing. With the new FST6 bracing system, it delivers improved resonance and added clarity compared to previous models. You can feel the guitar resonate against your body as you play, reacting intuitively to your technique. The skill of the Yairi luthiers shines through in every detail, from the hand-shaped neck to the immaculate fretwork. This parlor-sized guitar comes complete with a recycled nylon gig bag, providing eco-friendly protection during transport and storage.

All-Mahogany Construction Produces a Warm, Balanced Tone

The all-mahogany construction of the Alvarez Yairi PYM66HD helps it produce a wonderfully warm and balanced tone. The solid Honduran mahogany top adds richness and depth to the sound. When paired with mahogany back and sides, it creates a smooth voice that is evenly balanced across the tonal spectrum. This makes the PYM66HD a great choice for fingerstyle playing, with warm lows, balanced mids and clear, sweet highs. The notes are round and full, with a piano-like quality. Whether you prefer to play chords, arpeggios or melody lines, this guitar provides the ideal supportive tonal foundation. The mahogany also gives it a natural compression, allowing you to dig in without worrying about the tone splintering at higher volumes.

Slim Neck Profile Familiar to Electric Players

The mahogany neck has a slim profile with a 1 11/16" nut width, designed to feel familiar to electric guitarists. The narrower neck promotes comfortable fingering, while the slim profile provides a fast playing feel. The shorter 24" scale length also facilitates complex fingerstyle arrangements. Electric players can easily transition to the smooth playability of the PYM66HD. The slim neck and short scale cater to smaller hands as well, making this an excellent choice for younger players. Discover the joy of fingerpicking on the PYM66HD's easy-playing mahogany neck.

Ebony Fingerboard and Bridge Enhance Tone

The PYM66HD comes equipped with an ebony fingerboard and ebony bridge. Known for its crisp attack, ebony adds clarity to each note, accentuating the mahogany's warmth. Ebony's dense composition also enhances the guitar's sustain. You'll appreciate how each note rings out purely, with ebony's characteristic articulation. Even delicate passages sound clear and defined. The ebony bridge transfers these vibrant tones, while providing rock-solid intonation. Ebony's beauty and tonal properties make it the perfect complement to the all-mahogany build.

New FST6 Bracing Improves Resonance and Clarity

This parlor acoustic incorporates the new FST6 bracing system. While visually similar to the previous FST2 bracing, the FST6 braces are lighter in weight. This helps strike an ideal balance between strength and vibration, enhancing the guitar's resonance and clarity. You can feel the top vibrate against your body as you play, providing intuitive acoustic feedback. Notes ring out with added richness and the bass response is robust yet defined. Whether strumming chords or plucking individual strings, you'll appreciate how the FST6 bracing helps the PYM66HD come alive under your fingers.

Handcrafted in Japan by Master Luthiers

This parlor acoustic is crafted by master luthiers at the renowned Yairi factory in Kani, Japan. Their obsessive attention to detail is evident throughout, from the immaculate dovetail neck joint to the flawless fretwork. The solid wood top is carefully tuned by hand to achieve optimal resonance. The neck is individually spoke-shaved for a perfect customized feel. With over 80 years of guitar-making heritage, the luthiers pass down their skills from generation to generation, resulting in guitars with unparalleled old-world craftsmanship. When you receive your PYM66HD, you can be confident it meets the highest standards of quality.
