Alvarez RB-30SC No. 8

I made this baritone from what I believe is a 2005 Alvarez RB-30SC NAT that is just beginning to age wonderfully. It is not in perfect condition but is very very close. 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 chrome tuners. These Alvarez baritones are among the best sounding that I make and among the most praised by their owners. This instrument’s sustain is incredible. I am selling it without a case for $599 and as of this writing I do have a hard case that is a little banged but still good on the outside and nearly perfect on the inside for an additional $75. Sold - Thanks Dugan!
