- acoustic guitars
Dates of manufacture:
Introduced sometime in the early 1970s, the 5021 was an acoustic dreadnought style 12 string guitar, with a spruce top bound with w-b-w-b-w-b top purfling and black pickguard. There's some debate over whether the top is solid or laminated - some owners say its a solid spruce top but other commentors say laminated. The back, sides and neck were made from mahogany. The round sound hole had an attractive synthetic shell rosette. It had a rosewood fingerboard with pearl dots (some later versions had a bird wing inlay at the 12th fret). Rosewood veneer peg-head overlay with a mirrored "A" inlay (or a script Alvarez logo in early models), 6-a-side chrome open-gear tuners. It came in natural or sunburst finish. Measurements were 15-3/4" at the lower bout, 25-5/8" scale, 1-7/8" nut width, 3-15/16" to 4-3/4" body depth,
The Alvarez 5021 was made in Japan. The Alvarez Artist 5021 was discontinued in 1993 (some later models might have been made in Korea).
