Alvarez RB30 No. 9

I made this baritone from what I believe is a 2003 Alvarez RB-30C NAT that is just beginning to age wonderfully. It has one scratch on the top that is not immediately noticeable and other small signs of wear but is in very good condition.  It has a beautiful inlays on the headstock and unlike the SC model, it has a pick guard. 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 $549 and as of this writing I do have a used hard case available for an additional $75. Sold! Thanks to Bruce in Denver!
