Alvarez AB4102C No. 1 - My 100th Guitar

I made this baritone from what I believe to be a 2009 Alvarez AB4102C that was sold to me as brand new and unused. It originally listed for $799. It has all of the retail paper work and I found no notable imperfections while I was converting it. The frets were in unused condition but a little tarnished so I polished them. It has beautiful mother of pearl inlays on the headstock and an abalone rosette. I have finished it with a sound port and gold and chrome hardware. These Alvarez baritones are among the best sounding that I make and among the most praised by their owners. The body of this guitar is substantially thicker than many of my guitars and the sustain is incredible.

It comes with a lightweight factory hard case in very good condition that has a combination lock that has never been used and is still set to all zeros and a built in hygrometer. I am selling them as a set on eBay for $625 plus shipping. Sold - Thanks Christopher!
