Alvarez RB30 No. 11

I made this baritone from what I believe is a 2002 Alvarez RB-30 NAT that is just beginning to age wonderfully. It does have a few dings on the top that I have tried to picture. They are pretty small but noticeable. It has a scratch or two on the back and on the sides that I saw in reflection while I was converting it but they are insignificant and I can’t picture them. It has beautiful but understated 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. This instrument’s sustain is incredible. I am selling it without a case for $499 and as of this writing I do have a hard case available for an additional $75.
