Description

Electric flat top cutaway. Don't miss this one.

Alvarez Model 5073 with original label inside; 22 frets (re-fret 2 years qago, frets are like new); $150 Fishman Matrix under-saddle pickup - installed a year ago.         

Guitar is Mahogqany wood, sunburst on top and the rest of it is dark, has a dished back  for fuller sound. Came from factory with a Barcus Berry under-saddle pickup which died several years back.

Had passive tone and volume knobs on upper bout edge wher neck joins body. These were removed as they were worn and not working properly. There are two 1/4" holes there where the shafts came through - I still have the original pots and the metal box they mount in from inside the guitar.. The volume and tone for the Fishman are mounted under the top edge of the center hole by the 6th string. The finish on the top of the guitar is discolored and there is a longitudinal scratch ( possible crack? ) in the top.  The neck is very slim and fast. The sound of this guitar when played acoustically is hard to believe. Beautiful sound through an amp.  If you're looking for a gig guitar that sounds like several thousand dollars, and not woriied so much about the looks, go no further. This is a flat top picker's dream. I'm semi-retiring and I am cutting down to one guitar that serves my style after all these years. Serious only send an email and I'll send you some pics. I'll be posting pics here later.
