SKU: DELTA00TSB

    Product Description

    Alvarez’s acoustic range is notoriously diverse, and features a raft of stunning guitars that emit the most glorious of tones. The DELTA00/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 DELTA00/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.

    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

    Established in 1965 by major US instrument distributor St. Louis Music, Alvarez teamed up with master luthier Kazuo Yairi with the aim of producing the finest guitars in the world.

    The success of Alvarez-Yairi guitars helped put the brand on the market, and are still handmade in Kani, Japan to this day. 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!

    Nice sound and playability when properly set up, but badly finished out of the box

    Action too high and despite a wider neck than average--which is one reason I bought the guitar--string spacing was unnecessarily tight. But the sound was very good and exceptionally loud.

    Jonhnny30th Oct 2021

    Needed a set up out of the box, nothing unusual in that but action was so high at 12th fret as to be unplayable. Neck straight, fretwork great, beautiful little guitar, perfect for the sofa. The slightly wider fretboard/neck took a couple of sessions to adapt to , but what a lovely sound, perfect for blues.

    I love this guitar, the size is perfect (00), but...because the nut was badly cut i give it only 4 stars. And the A -string is a bit dull compared to the rest, wich really sing .already.

    Don't know of many other fingerpick focussed guitars at this price. The open tuners, soft V neck and heel really make it feel vintage without making it difficult to play. Like the tone - a lot more mid than my dreadnought. I'd have gone with a thinner more matt varnish, but that is minor really. I've given good for sound because there are better more expensive guitars.... but I'm very happy at this price.
