Superior Sound

This decadent, grand auditorium acoustic guitar is premium personified. Its a true instrumental all-rounder. Boasting shining trebles, and a crisp, bright bass, the walnut top works to deliver a laser-focused sound that makes it ideal for intimate live shows, detailed recording, or intensive practice sessions. This electro acoustic variant is fitted with an LR Baggs VTC Element pickup set, guaranteeing that your amplified tones sound just as good.   

Considered Construction

Every element of these guitars has been carefully considered to create the best instrument possible. Alvarez follow a strict code when it comes to building their guitars. Raw materials are sustainably sourced and prepared correctly; tone woods are properly cured; joints and neck blocks are designed to be solid and stable. They're then polished and sanded, finished with a selection of eye-catching visuals - in this case, a smart Shadowburst. 

The overall backbone of the construction is 'all solid'. This simply means that the sides, back and top all consist of solid wood, as opposed to laminated. The top is slightly thinner here, leading to more resonance and an increase in volume. Thanks to this build method, you'll also find quicker note deflection and superior response. The sound of your guitar will actually improve as it gets older too!

Looks great, sounds amazing. There is a small flaw in the finish where some coating has gathered, but other than that it is immaculate. The black walnut looks stunning.
