Alvarez’s acoustic range is notoriously diverse, and features a raft of stunning guitars that emit the most glorious of tones. The DELTA00E/TSB is one such model, with its small and comfortable Parlour-style design inspired by the instruments that powered early folk and blues music in the ‘30s.

Construction

The Alvarez DELTA00E/TSB is constructed predominantly from Mahogany, with its body and neck crafted from this popular tonewood. Offering a warm and rich mid-range, this material also accentuates the lows to ensure that the full range of the instrument is heard. Despite its small body size, this particular model’s back shifted scalloped bracing adds more openness, giving the instrument plenty of projection.

The body is adorned with a Solid A+ Sitka Spruce top, which adds some crucial top-end crispness. Providing you with plenty of presence, you can play fingerpicked patterns with all of the clarity and articulation you’d expect from a high-quality acoustic guitar.

Electronics

Like many of its counterparts, the Alvarez DELTA00E/TSB is fitted with high-end LR Baggs electronics. This model features their VTC system, with its discrete sound-hole-mounted pickup capturing the full acoustic range and voice of the instrument.

This exceptional pickup convincingly transfers its unique tonal qualities through a PA system or recording interface, making it perfect for live performance and session work.

The Jazz & Blues Range

The extremely popular Alvarez Jazz & Blues series covers a broad range of designs inspired by one of the definitive chapters in American music. This includes hollow-bodied ES-style guitars, semi-hollow electrics with vibrant aesthetics, and even a few small-bodied delta-blues acoustics - such as this.

As with the rest of their varied catalogue, Alvarez combine modern manufacturing techniques with unique tonewood treatments and beautiful design. The resulting instruments are top-class, offering authentic, articulate sounds and spellbinding looks. Several tweaks to this classic formula also give the Jazz & Blues offerings a uniquely modern edge – expect crystal-clarity and attention to detail!

About Alvarez

In the decades that followed, Alvarez significantly expanded their operation, and now produce one of the most extensive and diverse ranges of acoustic instruments in the world.

Ranging from affordable entry-level to world-class handmade instruments, Alvarez have got everything covered. Their instruments have been used by the likes of Johnny Cash, Paul McCartney, Carlos Santana, Ani DiFranco and many more – they’re obviously doing something right!
