Alvarez RB-30SC No. 7

I made this baritone from what I believe is a 2005 Alvarez RB-30SC Nat. It has a crack in the finish of the lower bout even with the bridge. Other than that, it is in very good condition. 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 came with a factory Alvarez heavy duty hard case and was never for sale - Steve's guitar.
