Alvarez Artist Series
Alvarez Artist Acoustic Guitars are a real value. First they are very comfortable to play, secondly they sound great and thirdly they're in a very comfortable price range. These are guitars that look, play and sound like guitars certainly more expensive. You get true Alvarez quality and workmanship in a variety of different options.
What Alvarez does is hand select solid top wood which is the sounding board for your guitars tone. They use forward shifted scalloped bracing, FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tone woods which gives a terrific user experience and sound. A solid top acoustic is a one piece construction rather than a laminated playwood style. This gives you that nice warm tone especially from the hand selected woods that Alvarez uses.
You get a warm sound that is distinct, full and powerful, but you also get all the intricacies and subtle things that a acoustic guitar player does that need to be heard. The power strumming is also represented very well. Aside from natural and the Shadowburst finish you also get the straight dreadnought acoustic, the acoustic electric with cutaway, 12 string with or without the pickup and the left handed version. Solid ‘A’ grade Sitka spruce from quarter-sawn wood are used. Better guitars are made from better wood and that's what you find with Alvarez's guitars. Choose the style and finish you would like in our drop down box. If you have any questions playes e-mail, chat or call us today. But don't miss a great bargain like this model.
