Alvarez uses traditional style construction for its entire classical guitar line incorporating a Spanish heel neck joint and tapered fan bracing to deliver stability, balance and volume across all six strings. The Artist 65’s are very responsive guitars with a warm and open tone.
This acoustic electric hybrid model is fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element pick up for optimal live performance. It also has a narrower nut width than a standard classical guitar, with a radius fingerboard and neck that joins at the 14th fret instead of the 12th. Favored by steel string players looking for the nylon string sound and feel.
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of Alvarez' culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Alvarez' tone woods are carefully cured; Alvarez' components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques we use are continually researched and developed, and Alvarez' tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.
This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic player experience.
We believe Alvarez' multi award winning Artist Series is one of the finest solid top guitar lines in the world today and demonstrates Alvarez' commitment to design.
The term “solid top” of course refers to the soundboard of an acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated. However, just because the top is solid, it does not necessarily mean the sound automatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built to do exactly this.
Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include Alvarez' hand finished, scalloped bracing, real bone nuts and saddles, great quality tone woods and thin finish.
All of Alvarez' tops are selected by Alvarez' team and graded independently of Alvarez' suppliers. If it isn’t worthy, we won’t use it. Top quality improves as you move up the Artist Series models but all are stiff and finely grained.
Artist Series also demonstrates Alvarez' great finishing capabilities; the gloss models have a clear deep shine from a finish that is applied as thinly as possible, again to help optimize tone.
