The DYM96 is a full sized square shoulder dreadnaught guitar, with all the characteristics of a K Yairi Masterworks instrument. The finest selection of naturally aged woods, combine to give superior tone and playability. Ovankol back and sides, spruce top, ebony fingerboard on a mahogany neck. While giving huge volume and projection, the instrument is extremely responsive. Ovankol gives a warm, round tone, great for accompanying vocals. The ‘Distressed ‘ top concept developed by K Yairi is intended to open the wood and increase resonance in the most natural way. This model has a ‘traditional’ bridge to allow for that dark roundness, accentuated by the ovankol. The vintage appearance is enhanced further by the waverly style tuners, extremely precise and reliable by Gotoh.
