I have a near mint Alvarez Dana II. Same guitar, minus the scoop. Nice playing guitars.

x2 always wanted one as a teenager so I hunted one down.. Loved it for a couple months, then the fun wore off and out it went.

Never seen one in person, saw plenty in guitar mags back in the day, always wondered if they were any good?

Rock on!

Neck was not great. Just budget level MIK. On par with Arias Pro II's or any other beginner level guitar you'd find in your mom & pop music shop. I ended up keeping the Floyd (which I added on there to replace the original bridge o' crap) and sent the body to someone here who bought another guitar from me. Not like I paid a lot for it originally.

I remember those guitars when they were new in the shop (I was in middle school at the time). I can't remember if I liked them that much. (I think I hated anything with a lacquered or varnished neck...it's satin finish or bare wood for me)
Were there two models, like a premium one and a budget version ? I think they were there at the same time Washburn had their extended range guitars with 29 frets or whatever, and I might be mixing up my playing impressions of the two :P

The Washburn was the Spitfire with either 29 or 32 frets and a Stephens cutaway.

N/P dude. I have since found out that they also came in a 36 fret model. The 29 and 32 frets were MIJ and the 36 made by Stephen Davies in Seattle. The 36 had a monkey grip.

Yeah, kind of jonesing for one now.

yeah, I saw the EC36....that's crazy, having an extra octave (at least on the high E string), I can't imagine my fingers fitting very well. Although, I guess if people can play violins with their close upper range note spacing, you can probably do something with a guitar way up there :P

There is no way I will use it as intended , I just want it because.
