    My neighbor has a side hustle building and selling cigar box guitars. He asked me to stop by last night to do a quick video of a new fretless build he was going to post for sale. In the corner of his basement I saw a lonely Alvarez that was begging me to play it. I'd heard good things about Alvarez as a great-bang-for-your-buck brand, but never played one until last night. I gotta say, for a laminate Chinese dreadnought, it kills!

    My neighbor could tell how much I liked it, so he offered to sell it to me for $75. I didn't have the cash on me and told him I'd think about it. In the meantime I snapped a pic of the model/serial #.

    I really don't need another acoustic, but I'm leaning heavily towards pulling the trigger.

    Might as well for that price! If it spoke to you, as they say, why not?

    I had one and it was great. I bought it for 60-70 and sold it for about the same so 75 isn’t far off
