In 1979 the following are the models they made and the price A500 -$499 (2 point) A700 - $750 (basic F) A800 - $875 (F with fancy abalone fingerboard inlays and headstock vine My 1984 Price list shows - interesting, the price went down A100 - $275 A500 - $450 A700 - $650 A800 - $775 A900 - $895 Thanks Years ago, I remember seeing ads in Guitar Player Magazine with Roy Clark endorsing Alvarez instruments.

In the ad he held an absolutely gorgeous-looking F-4 copy.

Some info about the instrument: 1) The headstock label indicates a blatant attempt to replicate an old Gibson, as it reads "The Alvarez" written in a very similar cursive script as the Gibsons.

There is also a Chalice-looking design under the script.

I have a friend take a look now and then, HE KNOWS Mandolins! I'm going to go by there today and see if they still have it!

The Mandolin Store: My dad told me that he traded this mandolin to Larry Sparks father for Gibson Dove guitar at Shohamy's in Franklin Ohio (I may not be spelling that correct) - this was like a small flea market............... Bernie - it's a little place where people trade guns and pocket knives mostly................. I assume it's still there and all I know is it's in Franklin.

Im just hoping that someone on this site has ever encountered an Alvarez like this.

Thanks for any help, and keep up the good work on the site!

We played Alvarez instruments so I have a pretty big archive of these back thru the the late 70's.

The early model you have has a flat scroll - not carved.

I dont recall that any of the Japanese makers of F-style mandolins at that time were making F-4 replicas, & I remember the photo knocked my socks off at the time.. I saw another several years ago for sale but those 2 are the only ones I ever saw!
