Alvarez DYM70CESHB YAIRI STANDARD SERIES DREADNOUGHT Shadow Burst
Solid Sitka with Solid Indian Rosewood is a combination that’s hard to beat when it comes to building a powerful, dynamic and charismatic instrument. The wood choice helps us deliver a versatile instrument suitable for a wide range of playing and musical styles.
The DYM70 never seems to run out of punch and its dynamic range is vast. Stroke it and it will whisper as quietly as you want it to; strum it as hard as you can and it will sing as loud as you need it to. This cutaway model is fitted with the LR Baggs VTC system and Element pick up which has a built-in pre-amp in the end pin and soundhole control console.
Everything is apparent in this guitar; bass, mids and trebles work together, never fighting each other, leaving the player free to approach the guitar from the song’s requirements rather than compensating for overly lively or underperforming response.
Like all Yairis, the DYM70 has an extended dovetail neck construction that maximizes the energy transfer between the neck and body and decreasing the risk of any neck/body irregularities.
Further innovation comes with the Direct Coupled Bridge. This system displays the true craftsmanship with which these guitars are made. The DC Bridge means the pins actually go into the top of the guitar, taking the vibration to the heart of the soundboard and simultaneously increasing the break angle from the saddle to the top. This increased down pressure raises string tension, giving the guitar a very responsive feel and adding quality to its volume and sustain.
Like all Yairi Masterworks, this guitar is made from premium tonewood that has been seasoned naturally for 5 to 15 years in the perfect climate of Kani.
Kani is in the prefecture of Gifu in the hills north of Nagoya. This wood preparation and environment for building guitars is very important to the structural integrity of the instrument and helps to ensure decades of stability and performance from your Yairi.
The DYM70 is our line in the sand—from here on in, it’s the guitar that sets the standard for all our future development. From the outset it was this model that we built dozens of samples of, refining the construction and bracing along the way to find the sound we wanted. We believe this is one of the best guitars in the market, an unfailing instrument that delivers player satisfaction note after note.
