The guitar is a 1990 Alvarez Yairi.

I have seen a few that really sucked but my first was an Alvarez Classic which is a fantastic guitar made in Korea that is a road monster, takes a lick and keeps on ticking. I then scored for $80 more of a strat type model that really rips, one turn of the nut and for $80 I have been grovin'. I'd say that the most important feature is the neck thickness, I never liked Fender necs and cut my teeth on a Gibson Melody maker and the a Paul so there.

The model you're referring to is a copy of the Ibanez model called a Voyager. It was associated with Reb Beach, of Winger. The only reason I know this is that it was my first electric guitar when I was a kid.

Actually, the AES100 was originally branded as a Westone guitar, produced in Korea. When Westone stopped selling them, Alvarez began buying them (unchanged except for the headstock) and selling them as branded Alvarez models. The Westone existed before the Ibanez and was the first Reb Beach signature guitar. Ibanez later copped the body style for their Voyager model.
