This magical line of Solid Vintage Honduran Mahogany guitars came about almost by accident. We were detailing the specs of a guitar we were making for Nashville-based guitar genius Jack Pearson and though Adirondack spruce paired with Honduran mahogany would be the best combination needed for the artist’s tonal requests.
Mr. Yairi amassed an incredible amount of tonewood throughout his life and although most is in or around the factory, some was stored on a piece of land he owned some miles away. We would go and see the wood on every trip. It became a ritual after lunch, but because most of it had darkened due to the elements we were never sure what all of it was. He may have been thinking, “One day they will realize what is in here…”
That day came, and what we found in terms of tonewood was pure gold: Perfectly conditioned billets of old growth Honduran mahogany that had been naturally seasoning for around 50 years…unbelievable.
Had we not discussed Honduran for Jack Pearson’s guitar, we would not have started the conversation at the factory that led us to discovering there was Honduran on the land, and we may have never known it was there. This series celebrates this amazing wood, arguably the best tonewood of all, while also celebrating Mr. Yairi’s commitment to his art through his lifetime and beyond.
The Mahogany has been paired with AAAA Adirondack spruce and an OM model is available in all solid Honduran. Sonically they’re incredibly full and powerful guitars with huge, clear bass and mids. They’re almost intuitive in the way they respond, drawing the player in and then taking you away. You will lose yourself for hours playing one of these amazing instruments.
This DYM60HD Dreadnought is a powerful guitar with a rich voice. It’s very warm sounding with as much low end as any player would need yet very balanced with round, full trebles.
The guitar itself is very light in weight due to the quality of the wood and thin finish; you feel it resonating as it instantly responds to your requests. Its projection is open and its volume is excellent. As a Yairi, its intonation is incredible and the all-round spec of the guitar is of the highest level with the amazing Gotoh 510 tuners and ebony bridge, fingerboard and headstock veneer.
Honduran Series are some of the best guitars Alvarez-Yairi have ever made and offer incredible value for such highly specified, inspiring handmade instruments.
The Yairi factory lies in the small town of Kani, nestled in the hills north of Nagoya, Japan. Here they have been making guitars for over 80 years.
The factory radiates its legacy of master craftsmanship the moment you step inside. Floors are made of mahogany, with walls built of rosewood tongue and groove, and the furniture itself is hand carved by the luthiers. The amount of naturally seasoned tonewood is legendary and the production line marries time-honored, handmade craftsmanship with modern-day design and processes.
