Alvarez RB30-SC NAT No. 6

I made this baritone from what I believe is a 2006 Alvarez RB-30SC Nat. It is not in perfect condition but is very very close. There is one small buckle scrape on the back that can only be seen in reflection. Other than that, I found no notable imperfections while I was converting it. It does show some signs of use though. It has beautiful inlays on the headstock and rosette and I have finished it with a sound port and gold tuners. These Alvarez baritones are among the best sounding that I make and among the most praised by their owners. The sustain is incredible.

It comes with a lightweight factory hard case that has a combination lock and a built in hygrometer. I am selling them as a set on eBay for $625 plus shipping. Sold - Thank you Shannon!
